Bears WR Alshon Jeffery expects to play Week 4


Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has only played in one game so far this season. He hasn't been the same since suffering a calf injury in early August. The calf injury led to the hamstring injury, which held him out of Week 3. Now Jeffery says the hamstring is getting better and he expects to play Week 4 when the Bears take on the Oakland Raiders.


The good news is, Jeffery should be back next week. The bad news is, his quarterback will be Jimmy Clausen. Still, if he's active you start him, especially against the Raiders. He wasn't healthy Week 2 and still caught five passes for 78 yards. Don't have a ton of confidence in him, but Clausen may just key in on him. Hopefully Jay Cutler is back very soon. All it takes is six quarters of Clausen to have Fantasy owners missing Cutler. Actually, it may have only taken six passes.
