Alshon Jeffery leaves game with knee injury: Fantasy implications

Thearon W. Henderson

Alshon Jeffery suffered a knee injury as his disappointing rookie season continues. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery just can't catch a break. On Monday Night Football against the San Francisco 49ers, Jeffery left the game with an undisclosed knee injury. This was his first game in over a month after suffering a broken hand back in Week 5, so it's a troubling setback for the rookie wideout.

Jeffery had just two catches for 15 yards before the injury.

Fantasy Impact: The guy just can't catch a break this year. He had a slow start to the season, but was starting to catch on as a reliable No. 2 WR before the hand injury. Now we have an un-related knee injury to deal with.

We'll know more about Jeffery's status in the morning, but it's a discouraging setback.
