Alshon Jeffery doesn’t think hand injury is serious

Not much went wrong for the Bears in the second half of their 41-3 win over the Jaguars, but they did see wide receiver Alshon Jeffery leave the game with a right hand injury after catching a touchdown from Jay Cutler.

He didn’t return, although it was hard to tell at the time if the Bears were pulling Jeffery because of the injury or because there was no need to risk any further pain in a game that was well under control. It was the injury, as it turns out, and Jeffery will have x-rays done on Monday to determine the severity of the injury. Jeffery wore a wrap on the hand after the game, but showed no concern about a long-term issue.

“I could have kept playing,” Jeffery said, via Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. “I’m confident it’s not serious.”

With the Bears on a bye week in Week Five, there is plenty of time for Jeffery to heal up before the Bears get back on the field for a game. As long as the x-rays don’t show something to contradict Jeffery’s assessment, we’d expect the Bears offense to be at full strength come Week Seven against the Lions.

    I envision a game one day where Marshall and Jeffery both have 100 yards receiving from Cutler, and Forte has 100 yards on the ground…Scary how good this offense will become.

    It comes in the form of a $7,875 fine. Jay and Tice, and a host of other Bears will be getting that call from the league office today! The league is still trying to calculate all the “smile” fines from Monday night as well!

    Getting Alshon Jeffery in the 2nd round was a steal.
    What a difference in the Bears WRs from last year.
    They are even using Hester in the slot where he belongs.

    Still need the O line to get better but I like what I see.

    Ashlon will be ready for the Lions. an the Bears will continue to roll over there opponets. Thats the Wisconsin Media with the attacks on Cutler.. an the offensive line. Just like last year it was Driver an the Wisconsin media that said Chicago didnt have any WR’s. But look now.. Greenbay’s offensive line is worse than Chicago’s an Greenbay’s WR’s cant catch
