Bears WR Alshon Jeffery missed the fourth quarter and overtime due to a hamstring injury, but Bears coach Marc Trestman said, "Alshon was prepared to go in there at specific times. I'll just leave it at that."

Jeffery was seen in the locker room after the game, and he didn't appear to be walking with a limp or any type of discomfort. Trestman said he didn't know the extent of Jeffery's injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Michael Spurlock and Josh Morgan saw time with Jeffery sidelined. WR Brandon Marshall was also injured (ankle) but did return to the game. We'll keep you updated on Jeffery as the week goes on but so far the news seems somewhat positive for Week 2.

"It was our first foray into it," offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye said. "There are some things about it that are different for us, and good. I like what I saw from Michael Spurlock. The initial introduction of it was very good."

Spurlock said he did not expect to run the Taser on Friday night when the 49ers open their exhibition season against Denver at Candlestick Park.
