Found December 04, 2012 on NFL Trade Rumors:
Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago reports that multiple sources have informed him that the Bears WR Alshon Jeffery is “on track” to return for Week 14′s game against the Vikings. “We’re going to go with the guys we have right now,” said head coach Lovie Smith when asked whether or not they would considering signing another receiver. “We’re going to get some guys back this week and we’ll be fine.“ Jeffery has missed two games because of a knee injury. Both Earl Bennett and Devin Hester suffered concussions recently, so getting Jeffery back would certainly prevent a huge drop-off in production. Opposing defenses would be wise to key in on Brandon Marshall, but I guess that’s easier said then done.
