NFL Injury Report:
Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was able to
return from a broken hand Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers. The hand
injury required surgery and kept him out for most of the first half of the
season. Jeffery sustained another injury, this time to his knee, Monday, and he’s
set to undergo arthroscopic surgery this morning.
The injury wasn’t initially expected to be severe, as
Jeffery was able to walk off the field under his own power without a noticeable
limp. However, the rookie wide receiver will require surgery and a timeframe
for his return isn’t clear. ESPNChicago.com is reporting he’ll miss two weeks,
while the Chicago Sun-Times is saying it will be closer to four to six weeks.
Jeffery’s return offered Chicago’s quarterback, Jason
Campbell for now and Jay Cutler long-term, a number two target opposite Brandon
Marshall. With Jeffery out for another extended stretch the Bears will once
again depend on former cornerback Devin Hester to expand his role.

The Bears have confirmed Alshon Jeffery will be sidelined 2-4 weeks after undergoing a knee scope on Wednesday. Coach Lovie Smith referred to it as a “minor” scope. With the Bears exceedingly thin at receiver, Jeffery should remain on the active roster, but it’s possible he won’t be ready to roll until Week 16 or 17. He’s probably a wasted roster spot in 12-14 team redraft...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Jay Cutler is often criticized for some of his decision-making, on and off the field, including this season's outburst against offensive lineman J'Marcus Webb, but there is no doubting his importance to the Chicago Bears.

Even Chicago Bears' linebacker Brian Urlacher gave San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick credit after Chicago suffered a 32-7 loss on Monday Night Football.
It was really the least Urlacher could do after him and the rest of the Bears' defense put together an uninspiring at Candlestick Park.
Listen in to hear Urlacher's kind words to the second-year quarterback...
The offensive line has held back Chicago’s offense all year. The Bears’ coaching staff decided changes were necessary and elevated Chris Spencer and Jonathan Scott to the starting lineup.
The Bears are considering benching RT Gabe Carimi for veteran Jonathan Scott. A bottom-10 tackle in Pro Football Focus’ rankings, Carimi got flat out embarrassed by 49ers DE Aldon Smith in Monday night’s loss, getting tossed around like a rag doll. Carimi is less than two years removed from being the No. 29 overall pick, but unless he’s playing injured, there’s simply no...
