Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery will miss two to four weeks following knee surgery, a source tells Sean Jensen of The Chicago Sun-Times. Jeffery was scheduled to have surgery Wednesday morning after being injured in his team's 32-7 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
Jeffery, who has 16 catches for 199 yards and two touchdowns this season, missed four games earlier this season with a broken right hand. The Bears face the Minnesota Vikings in Week 12.
Fantasy Impact: Jeffery's return from injury was very short-lived and fantasy owners in most leagues can probably release him to the waiver wire. Devin Hester and Earl Bennett will see most of the action at wide receiver behind Brandon Marshall.
Jeffery still has value in keeper and dynasty formats but should not be counted on during the rest of the fantasy season.
