Chicago Bears could get Alshon Jeffery back vs. Texans or 49ers

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

The Chicago Bears could get rookie wide receiver Alshon Jeffery back in the lineup against the Houston Texans in Week 10 or the San Francisco 49ers in Week 11.

The Chicago Bears are close to getting one of their young play-makers back on offense, as the Chicago Tribune reports that rookie receiver Alshon Jeffery could be on his way back to the lineup. According to the report, Jeffery could return from a hand injury on Nov. 11 against the Houston Texans, or Nov. 19 against the San Francisco 49ers.

Jeffery has been out with a broken right hand since an Oct. 7 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. He injured his hand while catching a touchdown pass. Coach Lovie Smith has said that Jeffery has been doing everything he possibly can to be prepared for his return from injury, saying that the young receiver has prepared himself both mentally and physically.

On Sunday, the Bears will take on the Tennessee Titans, and Jeffery will miss that game. If he returns against the Texans, he will only have missed three games, thanks to the team's bye week coming just after the injury. It will be four games if he doesn't return until the matchup with San Francisco, however.
