Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 3.
Huddle Up: Jeffery is expected to play but will be less than 100 percent. He's still a WR1 against a suspect Jets secondary.

Updating a previous report, Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) played in Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers, and he was held to three receptions and 47 yards with no scores.
Huddle Up: Jeffery and Brandon Marshall both entered Sunday night's game as questionable with limited practice time during the week; Marshall went off for three TDs while Jeffery looked... well, injured. Such is the fickle nature of the injury report and late games.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is active for the Week 2 game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: Jeffery will play against the 49ers Sunday night. He's a strong WR2 at less than 100 percent.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 2 against the San Francisco 49ers after practicing in a limited fashion Friday, Sept. 12, and taking part in some of the full team drills. Head coach Marc Trestman said the team will continue to monitor Jeffery's status before Sunday, Sept. 14. Jeffery was a little guarded when asked if he thinks he'd play against the Niners.
Huddle Up: Of the Bears' two gimpy stud WRs, Jeffery seems the least likely to play. The late Sunday-night kickoff also is far from ideal, so plan on starting another wideout unless you hear otherwise before the games start Sunday morning.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) missed practice again Thursday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: Troublesome news for the Bears' wideout and his fantasy owners -- particularly since the Bears don't play until Sunday night. Hope for better news Friday, but start getting a Plan B put together just in case.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) did not take part in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10, due to his hamstring injury.
Huddle Up: Jeffery is more doubtful for Sunday night's game than teammate Brandon Marshall because of his tender hamstring. Owners should have another option ready if it looks like Jeffery isn't going to start in the Sunday night game. Santonio Holmes would get the nod if Jeffery can't go and be a sneaky R3/flex play.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 10.
Huddle Up: Jeffery also missed most of the second half in the season opener and so this definitely bears watching the rest of the week.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) took the cautious approach not to re-enter the team's Week 1 game against the Buffalo Bills Sunday, Sept. 7, after being injured in the third quarter, and he didn't return in the fourth quarter or for overtime. 'I expected to go,' Jeffery said, 'but we were just being cautious.' Jeffery was mobile enough to celebrate with WR Brandon Marshall after Marshall's touchdown late in the third quarter.
Huddle Up: Jeffery finished the game with 5 catches for 71 yards on 6 targets, and his fantasy owners will have to see if the hammy continues to be an issue in practice this week.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (undisclosed) was shaken up during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 14, after being hit while he was down by Jacksonville Jaguars SS Winston Guy. Jeffrey was walking around on the sidelines after the incident.
Huddle Up: Jeffery appeared to take a shot to the rib area on the hit, which drew a personal foul, but further updates will be needed to clarify the exact nature of the injury. In any case, the Bears are dangerously thin at WR in back of Jeffery and Brandon Marshall with No. 3 wideout Marquess Wilson out with a broken collarbone.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery was named to the Pro Bowl Thursday, Jan. 9, replacing Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (knee).
Huddle Up: Certainly no surprise here following Megatron's knee issues down the stretch. Nonetheless, it's a well-deserved honor for Jeffery, who tied for eighth among all fantasy wideouts with 185 points in his second season.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery hit the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career after posting 12 receptions for 249 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 13 game against the Minnesota Vikings. It was Jeffery's second 200-yard game of the season.
Huddle Up: Earlier this season Jeffery set the franchise record for receiving yards in a game; he then broke his own record with his performance in Week 13. He's playing his way into 1B status alongside 1A Brandon Marshall, with the very real possibility those roles could be reversed in the not-too-distant future.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (ankle) was limited in practice Monday, Oct. 7.
Huddle Up: Jeffery could use a light day on a short week after setting the Bears' franchise record -- and it's a franchise that dates back to 1920 -- for receiving yards in a game with 218 on 10 grabs Sunday vs. the Saints. Jeffery is tied for 7th among fantasy WRs with 61 points.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery had 10 receptions for 218 yards and a touchdown in the Week 5 game against the New Orleans Saints. He set the franchise record with the yardage mark. The previous mark was 214 yards set by WR Harlon Hill in 1954.
Huddle Up: Jeffery is developing into a real threat opposite Brandon Marshall. With Jeffery playing well, defenses will no longer be able to focus entirely on Marshall--which in turn will open things up for Jay Cutler, Matt Forte, Martellus Bennett, and the rest of the Chicago offense.
