Found November 07, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
The Chicago Bears won’t get wide receiver Johnny Knox back this season, but Alshon Jeffery is expected to return for the team in the next two weeks, reports Michael C. Wright of ESPNChicago.com. "Alshon Jeffery continues to get better," Bears coach Lovie Smith said on Monday. "Don't know what his status will be this week, but we're getting closer as each day goes by." While coach Smith continued to be vague regarding Jeffery’s broken hand, Wright has heard that the team is expected to hold him out of this weekend’s contest against the Houston Texans as a “precautionary measure.” Jeffery would then be projected to return Nov. 19 when the Bears take on the San Francisco 49ers. Knox has been out for the season while recovering from a back injury sustained last year. Chicago had until yesterday to remove the receiver from their physically unable to perform list, meaning he will miss the entire rest of the season due to the injury.
