Found October 31, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
The Chicago Bears are expected to be without wide receiver Alshon Jeffery for this weekend’s matchup against the Tennessee Titans, but the rookie could rejoin the team in the next week or two, reports Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Titans in Tennessee but the rookie playmaker could be available for the Nov. 11 home game with the Texans or the Nov. 19 game against the 49ers in San Francisco. Biggs notes that Jeffery should be able to return from the broken hand that’s sidelined him since early Oct. in the next two weeks, according to an unnamed source. Bears coach Lovie Smith has said that he wouldn’t be able to put a timeframe on Jeffery’s return. Smith did say that Jeffery has been able to remain in shape while rehabbing his hand injury. Despite missing time to injury, the rookie is still third on the team in receptions (14) and second in receiving yards (184).

Week 8 team of the week: Chicago Bears

  Fourth quarter comebacks and overtime wins aren’t exactly how a head coach would prefer to win a game. They are however what fans hope to see when they pay the price of admission and while they might be rare, they are the highest form of entertainment.

Bears DE Julius Peppers Should Lose Playing Time to Corey Wootton

Julius Peppers is one of the most athletically gifted and most dominating pass rushers in the NFL over the last decade.  Peppers has tallied over 100 sacks and has been a gem to the Chicago Bears by bolstering what was once a stagnant pass rush.  His production during his first two years in Chicago is among the best in the NFL and he deserves to be starting.   The 2012 season...

Chicago Bears week 8 fantasy football review

If there is one thing Week 8 proved to fantasy owners, it's that you really can't trust Jay Cutler.

Matt Forte came around for his fantasy owners, and the defense continued to do their thing, despite...

Johnny Knox unlikely to return this season

The Chicago Bears have been without Johnny Knox as the wide  receiver attempts to come back from a back injury. Even with the production of Brandon Marshall and the hype around rookie Alshon Jeffery it is clear the Bears still miss the big play ability of Knox. ‘‘I miss him because of what he brought to the table — the speed factor. The ability to stretch the field,’’...

However, the Falcons still haven’t really played anyone that’s any good and they almost lost at home to the Raiders. The Bears’ one loss was on Thursday Night and...
