Jeffery had two catches on five targets for 34 yards during Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

Jeffery finishes the season with 85 catches on 145 targets for 1,133 yards and 10 touchdowns, a very solid season for a player who had five games with fewer than 50 yards. While quarterback Jay Cutler seemed to take a step back, Jeffery continued to shine playing opposite Brandon Marshall for much of the season. Jeffery scored seven touchdowns in his last seven games and he is expected to play a major role in 2015. However, the Bears are reportedly trying to find a replacement for Cutler, so Jeffery may need to develop a relationship with a new QB next year.

Jeffery had six catches on a team-high 15 targets for 72 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Lions.

Jeffery has now scored a touchdown in six consecutive games (seven scores over that span), as the change in quarterback from Jay Cutler to Jimmy Clausen actually increased his usage, with his 15 targets his second-highest total of the season. Up next is a Week 17 matchup against the Vikings, against whom Jeffery had his best game of the season in Week 11, catching 11 passes on 17 targets for 135 yards and a touchdown.

Jeffery (non-injury) was removed from the injury report for Sunday's game against Detroit.

Jeffery's Week 16 prospects aren't overwhelmingly positive, both because the Lions defense is strong and the benching of Jay Cutler for Jimmy Clausen could introduce more instability to the Chicago offense. Still, he's the clear lead receiver and a top talent, and he figures to see a high target count each of the final two weeks.

Jeffery (non-injury) didn't take part in practice Thursday.

The reason for Jeffery's absence isn't clear, but an ailment has been ruled out as the impetus. As the week continues and Friday's practice participation report is released, the wideout's status for Sunday's contest against the Lions may experience clarification.

Jeffery caught 4-of-9 targets for 78 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 31-15 loss to the Saints.

Jeffery was surprisingly quiet in Chicago's first game since Brandon Marshall suffered a season-ending injury, until hauling in two passes for 42 yards and a touchdown on the meaningless final drive. Jeffery should get plenty of targets over the final two weeks, but it was somewhat discouraging for his owners to see such an ugly performance from both Jay Cutler and the offensive line. While the Bears face a tough Detroit defense in Week 16, it's a matchup that should encourage plenty of passing. Despite jumping out to a 14-3 lead, the Bears recorded just eight carries in a 34-17 Thanksgiving loss to the Lions.

Jeffery (hamstring) caught 6-of-9 targets for 95 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 41-28 loss to the Cowboys.

Jeffery had just two catches for 16 yards through the first three quarters, even though Brandon Marshall was forced out in the second quarter with a rib injury. Jeffery then exploded in the final frame, highlighted by a 27-yard touchdown on the quarter's first play. Meanwhile, Marshall was taken to the hospital, presumably to be evaluated for internal injuries. If Marshall isn't able to play next week, Jeffery will get a boost against the porous New Orleans defense. Jeffery didn't seem too bothered by the hamstring injury that had him listed as questionable for Thursday's game.

Jeffery (hamstring) is listed as active Thursday versus the Cowboys, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

As expected, Jay Cutler will have his entire array of weapons available in Week 14. Jeffery himself will attempt to take advantage of a Dallas defense that has given up 14.0 YPC and three touchdown grabs to wideouts in the last three games.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Jeffery (hamstring) will suit up Thursday against the Cowboys.

Jeffery, who emerged from the week of preparation with questionable status, appears as if he'll be available in Week 14. However, we'll confirm as much upon the release of the Bears' inactive list in advance of the 8:25 PM ET kickoff.

Jeffery (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Thursday's contest versus the Cowboys, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Jeffery sandwiched limited showings in practice around a DNP for precautionary reasons Tuesday, which intimates active status will likely come to pass this week. However, with questionable availability in hand, owners should check back prior to the Bears' 8:25 PM ET kickoff Thursday to ensure the wideout is suiting up. If so, he'll aim to exploit a Cowboys defense that has allowed 14.0 YPC and three touchdowns to wide receivers over the past three games.

Jeffery (hamstring) did not practice Tuesday, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago reports.

Jeffery did not participate Tuesday, which represents a step back from the limited practice he got in Monday. However, head coach Mark Trestman said Jeffery was held out for precautionary reasons, and the Bears have provided no indication he could miss Thursday's game, so fantasy owners should remain optimistic about his chances of playing this week.
