Bears rookie wide receiver Alshon Jeffery will miss at least a month after breaking his right hand during Sunday's blowout win over the Jaguars. The break was discovered on Monday, he was placed in a cast, and he is expected to be out for four-to-six weeks. One small piece of good news is that Jeffery's injury won't require surgery. The Bears are on bye in Week 6.
So look for Jeffery to come back sometime around Week 9. He has surpassed 50 yards just once in five games, but he's probably been the second-best rookie wideout this season behind the Titans' Kendall Wright. And he has clearly been the second-best wideout on the Bears this season. Devin Hester and Earl Bennett will try to pick up the slack, but I wouldn't invest in them for fantasy. Luckily for Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall, the Bears have a trio of cake matchups when they come out of their bye -- Lions, Panthers and Titans.
