Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery suffered a fracture in his right hand during Sunday's 41-3 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jeffery injured the hand on his second career touchdown reception at the very beginning of the fourth quarter. The hand swelled and was in a cast after the game, and the injury that would keep him out a couple of days was revealed today. Typically, this type of injury will sideline a player for 4-to-6 weeks. Offensive coordinator Mike Tice lamented the loss of Jeffery, but expects the team to pick up the slack with players such as Earl Bennett, who is expected next week to make his return after missing the last two games with a hand injury. Also in the meantime, the Bears are expected to sign Kamar Aiken to the practice squad. The 6-foot-2, 213-pound Aiken last week was released from the practice squad of the Buffalo Bills.
