ESPN Chicago - [Full Article]

Alshon Jeffery (knee) was inactive for the game.

Jeffery is moving closer to returning from a minor knee procedure he underwent on Nov. 21 that was expected to sideline him for 2-4 weeks. The rookie wideout did some light running on Saturday and ran routes during pregame warmups on Sunday. There is a chance he is cleared to resume practicing at some point this week.

Fantasy Impact:

With Earl Bennett possibly out, Eric Weems and Dane Sanzenbacher are the club's only other options behind starter Brandon Marshall.

Bears lose Forte, Hester to injuries
Sunday, November 25, 2012, 6:21pm

The News Tribune - [Full Article]

The Chicago Bears suffered a rash of injuries in Sunday's win over Minnesota, losing returner/receiver Devin Hester, running back Matt Forte and cornerback Charles Tillman.

Hester left early with what was later termed as a concussion and was replaced by Eric Weems.

Forte departed the game in the third quarter with an ankle issue and had lost a fumble in the first half. Running back Michael Bush, who had two first half touchdown runs, took over full-time duties after that.

Tillman also left the game with an ankle injury while guards Chris Spencer and Lance Louis also departed the contest with knee ailments.

Fantasy Impact:

Michael Bush is an obvious pickup if Forte misses any time with the ankle injury.

There is no doubt that Green Bay has weaker special teams. The Pack allowed a record 102-yard kickoff return to Eric Weems in Atlanta, and in the loss to the Bears, Devin Hester had a 62-yard punt return for a touchdown.

It will be imperative that Packers punter Tim Masthay duplicates his Week 17 effort against Hester. In that game, Masthay, who didn’t punt once against the Falcons, kicked to Hester eight times and the Bear returned only two. Masthay put four punts inside the 20-yard line, two of them inside the five, and had a touchback. The Packers totally bottled up Hester. “The objective, when you’ve got a guy who can change the game the way Devin can, is you’ve got to limit the space that he has to operate in,” Slocum said. “And, No. 2, limit the total number of return opportunities.”
