Found October 09, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:




Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery’s right hand will
not require surgery, but the rookie is still expected to be sidelined four to
six weeks due to the injury, reports Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times:








"Four to six weeks is a
very reasonable period of time," Dr. Shin said. "I don't know where
the fracture is and what bone is affected. But if it doesn't need surgery, it's
probably a non-displaced, stable fracture that can be treated."






Though he’s a rookie, Jeffery had emerged as a key part of
the Bears’ offense, catching 14 balls for 184 yards and two touchdowns on the
season.




Chicago has also been without wide receiver Earl Bennett for
the past two weeks due to an injury, but coach Lovie Smith said yesterday that
he expects him to return following this week’s bye.
