SHARE Bears WR Alshon Jeffery says his knee is fine

SAN FRANCISCO — Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery left Monday night’s game against the San Francisco 49ers in the fourth quarter with a knee injury, but the rookie said he was fine afterward.

“Yeah,” Jeffery said when asked if he’s OK. He also ran off the field without a noticeable limp.

Jeffery was playing in his first game since breaking his right hand against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Oct. 7. After missing the last four games, Jeffery had two catches for 15 yards against the 49ers. He was targeted four times by quarterback Jason Campbell.

“It was all right,” Jeffery said about playing for the first time in weeks. “I was not too bad. I was just trying to get back into motion.

“It was just their night. They did a lot of things [well].”
