FF Today's Take:Jeffery missed practice Thursday and Friday which is never a good sign for availability on Sunday. With Jeffery down, Marquess Wilson becomes the top Bears wideout. Expect Marc Mariani too see more snaps and Martellus Bennett to see more targets.
Forte, Jeffery miss practice on Thursday-- Thu Nov 19 5:50 pm --
MCL, groin injuries
One day after both were limited participants, RB Matt Forte and WR Alshon Jeffery did not participate Thursday.
Forte has a sprained MCL in his knee and Jeffery a groin problem. One contributing factor to Thursday’s status was the fact the Bears practiced indoors and on artificial turf, which is traditionally tough on those injuries. Jeffery — who the team said also has a shoulder injury — played Sunday, though he caught only three passes. Forte has missed the past two games since hurting his knee at home against the Vikings.(Chicago Sun-Times)
FF Today's Take:Forte has already suggested that he has to consider the Bears will be playing on a short week next week, which is a strong hint that he will miss this week against the Broncos and try to go on Thanksgiving. As for Jeffery, Friday's practice report will be critical. If he is forced to miss time, Marquess Wilson and Martellus Bennett figure to be on the receiving end of a lot of targets in Week 11.
