Jeffery will have arthroscopic knee surgery

On Monday night, Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery returned from a four-game absence due to a broken hand.  Now, Jeffery has a busted knee.

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports that Jeffery will have arthroscopic knee surgery on Wednesday.

It’s unknown when Jeffery will return, or what specifically will be done to repair the joint.  The procedure often is used to clean up loose or torn cartilage, and the recovery time can be fairly short.

Jeffery, a second-round pick in April, has 16 catches for 199 yards and two touchdowns in six games, with two starts.  His best game came in week one, when he racked up 80 yards and a touchdown.

UPDATE 9:43 p.m. ET:  Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Jeffery is expected to miss 2-4 weeks.

    Hopefully he recovers fully, and comes back in time for Green Bay.

    Great. This season has come to a screeching halt.

    He’s looked pretty good in limited action. Hope his recovery goes well.

    not like this could have any implications on the bears after that offensive display on Monday night…

    Wonder why Chicago didnt sign Plaxico….seems like he would have been a great 2nd option when defenses zero in on Marshall.

    Just had my knee scoped last week. So I will be available 1 week prior to him. Wait, no I have basic healthcare, not millionaire doctor healthcare. I’m out 4-6 weeks just to be able to play golf.

    Anderson from the PS. Next man up.

    Bears might win 1-2 games the rest of the season. Looks like 8-8 again. Management refuses to build an O line.

    Wow he lasted along time

  17. filthymcnasty1 says: Nov 21, 2012 8:20 AM

    I hope he’s back in time for their early playoff exit.

    This is part of the karma Bears fans deserve for being such meatballs. I love the Bears, but I hate the fanbase.

  19. crik911 says: Nov 21, 2012 9:19 AM

    Hated this pick from the beginning. Begged for management to start picking OLINE with every single pick last draft.

    That was fun while it lasted.
