Bears WR Alshon Jeffery not expected to play Week 2


Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is not expected to play Week 2. Jeffery tweaked his hamstring on Thursday and does not look like he'll be playing today. The hamstring injury is believed to be a setback due to his calf injury. We will update you when inactives are made official.


This is a tough blow to the Bears offense who will need all the help they can get against the Arizona Cardinals defense. With Jeffery out, Eddie Royal, Marquess Wilson and Martellus Bennett should all see an increase in targets. Royal disappointed last week but could be the guy to start this week. He was targeted in the end zone last week, however, Jay Cutler made a poor throw under pressure. Royal could be a solid sleeper play and a last minute fill-in for Jeffrey.
