Jeffery is dealing with a hamstring injury in addition to the knee issue that bothered him earlier in the week, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

According to Chris Emma of 670 The Score, Jeffery was a limited practice participant Friday for a third straight day and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Detroit. His knee injury hasn't been much of a concern, but the addition of a hamstring ailment does raise some questions, especially considering Jeffery's lengthy history of hammy issues. While his ability to practice suggest he should be able to play, owners will want to check back in as Sunday's 1:00 P.M. ET kickoff approaches.

Jeffery (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Bears have capped Jeffery's activity level in back-to-back weeks due to a knee injury, but the ailment didn't stop him from hooking up with backup QB Brian Hoyer on Monday to the tune of five catches for 70 yards. Jeffery has taken full advantage of his 20 targets this season, averaging a ridiculous 13.6 per look, so the signal-caller doesn't appear to matter with Jeffery. In any case, with Jay Cutler (thumb) logging a limited practice as well Wednesday, Jeffery could be working with a familiar face Sunday against the Lions, assuming the wideout is active again in Week 4.

Jeffery (knee) caught five passes for 70 yards on seven targets in Sunday's 31-17 loss to Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

While not visibly bothered by his injury, Jeffery surprisingly finished just third on the team in targets, trailing Kevin White (14) and Zach Miller (nine). The lack of volume is starting to become a concern, even though Jeffery is averaging 90 yards per game. He has just 20 targets through three weeks and has yet to find the end zone, though the latter issue is largely a product of playing for a dreadful team. In any case, the injury-riddled Bears are worse than they were last season, and Jeffery also has more competition for targets than he did at the time. While he's still a weekly must-start in nearly all formats, expectations shouldn't be based on last year's massive volume. Jeffery will face the 49ers in Week 4.

Jeffery (knee) is listed as active Sunday in Dallas.

EDGE Analysis

A knee injury forced Jeffery to follow a limited/DNP/limited practice schedule this week, but despite the cap in reps, he'll suit up in Week 3. Like typical starter Jay Cutler, who's sidelined with a right thumb sprain, Brian Hoyer should consider Jeffery his No. 1 option in the passing attack.

Jeffery (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the Cowboys, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery did not practice Thursday and was limited Wednesday and Friday, and while he is going to work out the knee before kickoff, the team is apparently confident that he'll give it a go. While his availability is good news, he'll likely be catching passes from backup quarterback Brian Hoyer, with Jay Cutler unlikely to play because of a thumb injury.

Jeffery (knee) returned to a limited practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Dallas, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery sandwiched a pair of limited practices around Thursday's non-participation, leaving his Week 3 status up in the air. Meanwhile, Jay Cutler (thumb) missed practice all week and is listed as doubtful, which means Jeffery will likely be catching passes from Brian Hoyer, if the wideout is ultimately able to play.

Jeffery (knee) didn't take part in practice Thursday, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery's lack of activity in the portion of practice open to the media extended to the rest of the session. It's unclear if the DNP is merely for maintenance purposes or the result of a setback, but Friday's injury report could bring his Week 3 availability into focus.

Jeffery was limited in practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery has tended to a number of ailments throughout his four-plus years in the NFL, including a knee concern that required arthroscopic surgery in his rookie season and resulted in inactive status for two games. After a limited practice session Wednesday, the current issue doesn't appear to be in the same realm of severity, but his progress as the week proceeds will forecast his availability for Sunday night's game at Dallas.

Jeffery caught a team-high five passes (on seven targets) for 96 yards in Monday night's loss to the Eagles.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery's receiving total was boosted by him hauling in a 49-yard bomb early in the second quarter. That came after Jeffery caught a 54-yard pass during Week 1, showing some big-play ability to start this season. Through two games, he's combined for nine receptions on 13 targets for 201 yards, but has yet to find the end zone. While his lack of a touchdown is the only complaint fantasy owners could have now, quarterback Jay Cutler's hand injury could also prove harmful to Jeffery's stock if backup Brian Hoyer is forced into further action going forward.

Jeffery caught four passes for 105 yards Sunday against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

The Texans' defense was keenly aware who the most dangerous offensive weapon on the Bears was, and the only mistake they made was allowing him to get loose for a 54-yard reception when the Bears were in the two-minute drill in the first half. Otherwise, he found very little room to operate, and only saw six targets in the contest. He'll continue to be a high-end fantasy option each week, as Jay Cutler will typically ensure that his stud receiver sees high target volume.
