Alshon Jeffery - Week 2 vs. San Francisco
Alshon Jeffery has been listed as questionable for Sunday night's game. He did participate in Bears practice on Friday on a limited basis. He told ESPN's Jeff Dickerson that he felt "pretty good." His status is in question.
Alshon Jeffery suffered a hamstring injury in the third quarter of Week 1. According to the Chicago Sun Times Jeffery said he was going to come back in but didn't because they were "being cautious. It's the first game of the season."
Even though he left early in the third quarter, Jeffery had a solid game. He caught five of his six targets for 71 yards. This week he'll face a fairly tough 49ers defense. We'll also have to keep an eye on his injury status throughout the week in case he's slowed down at all.
Assuming he's healthy enough to play Jeffery should be viewed as a borderline WR1. He and Brandon Marshall are one of the top WR duos in the league for a reason. They continuously have high production every week.
