Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) escaped Sunday's win over the 49ers without setbacks.
He'll be good to go for Week 3 against the Jets' shaky secondary, and is getting an extra day of rest with the game coming on Monday night. Likely still playing at less than 100 percent health, Jeffery will be a borderline WR1. Sep 16 - 2:53 PM

Alshon Jeffery secured 3-of-6 targets for 47 yards in Sunday night's Week 2 win over the 49ers.

Jeffery was clearly playing injured, and had just one catch for four yards at half. His only notable play was a 29-yard fade route he caught over 49ers CB Chris Culliver. With the Bears playing on Monday night, Jeffery will have an extra day to get healthy for Week 3.
Sep 15 - 1:34 AM

Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is active for Sunday night's game against the 49ers.

Jeffery was cleared after getting through pre-game warmups without issue. He practiced on a limited basis Friday, and shouldn't be on a snap count. Brandon Marshall (ankle) is also active.
Sep 14 - 7:06 PM

A source informed ESPN's Adam Schefter that both Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) are "75 percent" certain to miss Sunday Night Football against the 49ers.

They're both likely to be game-time decisions. Jeffery got in a limited practice Friday, while Marshall missed the entire work week. If neither can go, Santonio Holmes will fill the No. 1 receiver hole for Jay Cutler and become an intriguing WR3 option. Martellus Bennett and Matt Forte would also play expanded roles.
Sep 14 - 9:00 AM

Alshon Jeffery (hamstring, questionable) practiced on a limited basis Friday, but was noncommittal when asked whether he will play in Sunday night's game against the 49ers.

"We'll see," said Jeffery. "A game and practice is different." Like Brandon Marshall (ankle), Jeffery is shaping up as a game-time decision for Week 2. Ideally, we will have more updates on each Bears wideout by Saturday or Sunday morning. Stay tuned. Jeffery owners need to have an alternative lined up.
Sep 12 - 2:04 PM

Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Brandon Marshall (ankle) remained sidelined Thursday.

It's Jeffery's second straight DNP, greatly clouding his status for Sunday night's game with the 49ers. The Bears are "unsure" if Jeffery will be ready to return on Friday. At this point, he's looking less than 50-50 for Week 2. With Marshall looking highly questionable, as well, there's a chance the Bears could be forced to go on the road with Santonio Holmes as their No. 1 receiver.
Sep 11 - 2:36 PM

Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Jeffery missed the fourth quarter and overtime of Sunday's loss to Buffalo. He's considered day to day, but his status for Week 2 remains uncertain. Jeffery will be a borderline WR2 if active for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers.
Sep 10 - 3:07 PM

Following Sunday's loss to the Bills, coach Marc Trestman downplayed Alshon Jeffery's hamstring injury.

Jeffery missed the fourth quarter and overtime, finishing with a 5-71-0 line on six targets. "Alshon was prepared to go in there at specific times. I'll just leave it at that," Trestman said. Jeffery was also spotted in the locker room walking without any limp or discomfort. We'll consider him day to day for now.
Sep 7 - 6:34 PM

Alshon Jeffery was forced from Sunday's Week 1 game against the Bills with a hamstring injury.

The Bears listed Jeffery as probable to return, but he spent almost the entire second half on the sidelines and didn't play in overtime. He had five catches for 71 yards on six targets before exiting. Santonio Holmes and Josh Morgan filled in for Jeffery in three-wide sets.
Sep 7 - 4:03 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught 4-of-8 targets for 45 yards in the Bears' third preseason game Friday night at Seattle.

Some folks have focused on Jay Cutler's tendency to "lock onto" Brandon Marshall, but Jeffery was targeted on five of Cutler's initial eight throws in this game. Jeffery's on-field performance was sloppy and inefficient, however, as he dropped a would-be touchdown catch and nearly lost a second-quarter fumble. The Bears would obviously rather Jeffery get these mistakes out of his system now. He has seven catches for 85 yards in the preseason.

Alshon Jeffery will replace Calvin Johnson (knee) in the Pro Bowl.

It's a well-deserved honor for Jeffery. In just his second NFL season, he put up 89 catches for 1,421 yards with seven touchdowns while grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 8 wideout. He'll join Brandon Marshall as the first duo of Bears receivers ever selected to the Pro Bowl in the same year.
Jan 9 - 12:25 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught three passes for 80 yards in Chicago's Week 17 loss to the Packers.

Jeffery's final catch should have gone for a 68-yard touchdown, but he was incorrectly ruled down at the one-yard line. For reasons unknown, Chicago declined to challenge. Jeffery caps his breakout sophomore campaign with 89 catches for 1,421 yards and seven touchdowns. His yards led the team. Jeffery will have a hard time matching the yardage in 2014 with Brandon Marshall still in his prime, but is a bonafide WR1 with a ceiling that's through the roof in Dynasty leagues.

Alshon Jeffery had six catches for 76 yards in Sunday night's Week 16 loss to the Eagles.

Jeffery was held out of the end-zone this week after scoring four touchdowns in his last three games. He shared the team lead with nine targets, but was held to just two catches in the second half. The Bears take on the Packers to decide the NFC North in their regular season finale. Jeffery had five catches for 60 yards and a touchdown against the Packers back in Week 9.

Alshon Jeffery caught five passes for 72 yards with one touchdown in Sunday's Week 15 win at Cleveland.

Jay Cutler (ankle) was back in the mix and looked for his bro Brandon Marshall relentlessly (13 targets). Jeffery ended up with only five targets, but he made yet another "play of the week" kind of catch. With 11 minutes left in the game and the Bears down by seven, Cutler essentially threw a high Hail Mary into double coverage and Jeffery somehow came down with it for a 45-yard score -- his fourth touchdown in the last three weeks. Jeffery is going to run free all day against the Eagles in Week 16, so getting a few less targets at the expense of Marshall isn't a concern. The second-year man will be a borderline WR1.

Alshon Jeffery caught five passes for 84 yards and one touchdown in Week 14 against the Cowboys.

Jeffery drew a team-high nine targets and seems to be Josh McCown's go-to guy. The touchdown is a catch you'll have to see to believe. Just before halftime, Jeffery beat B.W. Webb to the back, right corner of the end zone and vice-gripped a ball with his steel-trap mitts as he was falling to the ground for a 25-yard score. Jeffery could have easily had another touchdown earlier in the game, but he kind of quit on his route while McCown led him too far. Jeffery is producing like a WR1 in an offense where there are a ton of balls to go around. We'll conservatively have him ranked as a WR2 next week against the Browns.
