Found November 10, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was able to return to practice for the first time since breaking his hand in a game against the Jacksonville Jaguars over a month ago. Still, Jeffery is considered doubtful for Sunday’s contest against the Houston Texans, reports Adam L. Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times. "We're excited about the progress he's made, [but] he's doubtful," Smith said after practice Friday. "I can't really say much more than that. But we put him as doubtful instead of out [on the injury report]." Jeffery was one of Jay Cutler’s top targets beside fellow wide receiver Brandon Marshall prior to his injury. Chicago has seemed to lack a true second option beyond Marshall in his absence. Beyond Jeffery, defensive tackle Matt Toeaina is doubtful with a calf injury. Defensive linemen Israel Idonije (ankle) and Henry Melton (back) are both probable to play against the Texans.
