SHARE Alshon Jeffery returns to practice, says ‘I’m fine’

Alshon Jeffery’s groin injury didn’t last nearly as long than his calf or hamstring maladies.

The Bears receiver returned to practice Friday, two days after injuring his groin, and was ruled questionable for Sunday’s game in St. Louis.

“It hasn’t restricted my movements too much,” he said Friday at Halas Hall. “Just keep getting treatment and just getting better, see how I feel.”

Asked how he felt, Jeffery said “I’m fine; I’ll be all right.”

Will he go Sunday?

“We’ll wait and see,” he said, smiling.

Jeffery “had a good practice,” coach John Fox said. Asked what he’ll look for during Saturday’s walk-through, Fox said that “if the medical people think he’s ready to go, they go.”

Jeffery has been nothing short of spectacular in his three games since returning from his hamstring injury, catching 28 balls for 414 yards and two touchdowns. He has catches of 47 and 45 yards.

“He’s got a stretch of games that we’d like to continue this week in St. Louis,” Fox said.
