Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (knee, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is questionable for Week 3. The midweek downgrade is worrisome, and HC John Fox is well-known for divulging as little as possible to the press in an effort to trick his opponent that week. The return to a limited practice doesn’t tell us much and, complicating matters, the Bears play on Sunday night. Owners who want to wait on Jeffery should get a Plan B in place. Mohamed Sanu, Michael Thomas, Eddie Royal, Cole Beasley and Terrance Williams all play at the same time or later than the Bears.

Week 3 at Dallas
Alshon Jeffery has basically had back-to-back 100-yard games, which is pretty good production. He hasn't found the end zone yet, and could struggle to do so with the second-string quarterback taking over this week.
If Jeffery plays this week, he's going to be a low-end WR1 option. He should get a lot of targets from Brian Hoyer, and it's a good enough matchup where Jeffery can make a play.
The key with Jeffery is if he'll play. He was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, and was downgraded to no practice Thursday. Typically we'd want to see those reversed. Considering Jeffery is a late night play Sunday, it'd be wise to pick up a back-up plan just in case.
