News you need to know

General News (Wed Oct 7): partially participated in Wednesday's practice.
Week 5: at Kansas City Chiefs
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Jay Cutler saved the Bears from embarrassment at Oakland last week, and actually engineered a solid game with 28/43 for 281 yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown. Martellus Bennett (13 targets for 11/83/1 receiving), Eddie Royal (10 for 7/54/1) and Marquess Wilson (nine for 6/80/0) formed the nucleus of this non-Alshon-Jeffery attack - Jeffery's troublesome calf injury continues to force him to the sidelines. Stay Tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News as the weekend approaches to see if Jeffery can get back in the mix for this contest in Kansas City. Speaking of Kansas City, the Chiefs lurk in raucous Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday afternoon - to date, the K.C. pass D has been poor, averaging 295.5 net passing yards allowed per game, with a league-worst 11 passing scores given out over just four games, vs. two interceptions (tied for 21st in the NFL) and nine sacks generated so far (tied for ninth). Last week, they coughed up 17/24 for 321 net passing yards, one TD and zero interceptions to the Bengals' attack. NO too good, folks. Advantage, Chicago, even though the 12th-man makes things rough in Arrowhead.

2015 Week 1 vs GB (11 / 5 / 78 / 0 rec)
Plagued by a calf injury that cost him the entire preseason, there was some question as to whether Jeffery would even play against the Packers. But play he did, to the tune of five catches on 11 targets for 78 yards. Jeffery lacked the burst we've come to expect, but he did not lack explosion to the ball. The calf did not appear to be a problem as Jeffery was leaping up and over Packer defenders. The Bears' passing attack against the Packers protected Jeffery to an extent. The game plan didn't ask Jeffery to burn down the field, to beat the Packers over the top. But as Jeffery's health returns, that definitely will change. In a balanced scheme, with Matt Forte running the ball 20-plus times a game, Jeffery is going to start finding success in the latter two-thirds of the field. As the season progresses and the Bears' new-look offense gets more comfortable, offensive coordinator Adam Gase likely will use Jeffery similarly to Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders last season in Denver.
