Even though the man who goes by the initial J.C. has been healed in Chicago, his top target remains among the infirm.

According to Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune, Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery could miss his fourth straight game this week with a lingering hamstring strain.

Jeffery didn’t practice fully Thursday, and has only participated in two practices since the start of the regular season, following a calf injury that kept him out of the preseason.

I’m just taking it one day at a time,” he said. “It’s a process. As a player, I want to be out there, too. But it’s a process. It’s a long season.

“I miss being out there a lot, but at the same time, it’s a process. But I’ll be back out there soon, hopefully.”

Soon can’t be soon enough, as fellow wideout Eddie Royal missed his second straight day of practice with an ankle injury.
