Bears WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) expected to return against Raiders
Monday September 28th, 2015

Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery expects to return from his hamstring injury for Sunday’s game against Oakland Raiders, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

After returning from a calf injury to catch five passes for a team-high 78 yards in Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers, Jeffery tweaked his hamstring in practice and sat out Week 2 and 3. 

In 2013, Jeffery caught 89 passes for 1,421 yards and seven touchdowns and averaged 16 yards per catch. Last season, Jeffery had 85 catches and 1,133 yards while collecting 10 touchdown passes.

Jeffery will work with quarterback Jimmy Clausen, filling for the injured Jay Cutler, who went 9-of-17 for 63 yards in the Bears’ 26-0 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The Bears punted on every possession.
