Simply put, losing rookie wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is a considerable loss for the Bears
Jeffery was having the best season among rookie wide receivers in the NFC. His 184 receiving yards lead all first-year receivers in the conference and his two touchdowns have provided balance for the Bears.
The Sun-Times reported Monday that Jeffery will be out four to six weeks with a fracture in his right hand suffered in the Bears' 41-3 rout of the Jacksonville Jaguars. But surgery won't be required. Jeffery had a 10-yard touchdown catch to open the fourth quarter, but it was his last play of the game.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright is the only rookie having a better season than Jeffery with 27 catches, 214 yards and two touchdowns.
