Alshon Jeffery injury update: Probable and should return to fantasy radar

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

Alshon Jeffery is probable for Week 11 against the 49ers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hand) is officially listed as probable for Monday Night Football against the San Francisco 49ers. Jeffery broke his hand in Week 5 and hasn't played since. He finally returned to practice this week, getting a full session on Saturday, and is on track to suit up on Monday.

Before the injury, Jeffery had 14 catches for 184 yards and two TDs in five games.

Fantasy Impact: It's a welcome return for the Bears, who have been desperate for a reliable No. 2 WR opposite Brandon Marshall. Jeffery is much better than Devin Hester or Earl Bennett.

The big uncertainty for fantasy owners is the possible rust after missing a month and Jason Campbell playing with Jay Cutler out. If he's still on the wire, pick him up and stash him for this week. He'll be a nice WR3 down the stretch.
