Alshon Jeffery on verge of missing fourth straight game

AP

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.

  1. Just put the guys on IR with Return, and move White to IR Perm. Bears are destroying this guys image to the fan base.

    I’m already tired hearing about AJ.

  2. Can’t figure out why the Bears won’t just just put him on the IR /designated list, buy themselves a few weeks off from all this drama and open up a roster spot for someone who can contribute the next few weeks. As for his future in Chicago, looks like it will be the tag or nothing. No GM in his right mind would sign him to a huge long-term deal based on what’s happened so far this season.

  3. awhile back it was Chicago has one of the best receiver cores in the NFL. Now it’s just a daily hospital press release filing.

  4. Men,

    If the death spiral of your season continues today against a terrible Bears team, surely sweeping changes will have to be considered, yes?
