Doesn't look like it.
LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The Chicago Bears practiced Thursday without rookie receiver Alshon Jeffery, along with defensive tackle and Matt Toeaina (calf), and linebacker Brian Urlacher, who received the customary veteran's day off.
Jeffery is the only player of the group not expected to play Sunday when the Bears host the Houston Texans at Soldier Field, but the receiver hasn't been declared out officially.
"Alshon Jeffery is getting better," Bears coach Lovie Smith said. "He's not quite there yet."
Although there's a chance -- which looks slimmer by the day -- that Jeffery could return this week according to sources, the Bears plan to hold out the receiver against the Texans to minimize the risk of re-injury to his broken right hand, before bringing him back for a Nov. 19 matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.
