Alshon Jeffery active Thursday night vs. Cowboys

Listed as questionable coming into gameday, the Bears wideout has been cleared to play through a hamstring injury on “Thursday Night Football.”

Injured Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery will play Thursday night against the Dallas Cowboys. The Bears, who designated Jeffery as questionable with a hamstring injury earlier this week, have listed him as active on the official injury report.

Jeffery missed practice on Tuesday and was limited on Wednesday. He has dealt with nagging hamstring issues throughout the season but has yet to miss a game.

There’s no doubt that the struggling Bears need him in the lineup. Jeffery was the lone offensive bright spot in a disastrous Thanksgiving loss to the Detroit Lions, grabbing nine receptions for 71 yards and two touchdowns. Jeffery has been the constant for an up-and-down offense, leading the team in receptions (67) and receiving yards (854) and ranking second in receiving touchdowns (seven).

Notable inactives for the Bears include kicker Robbie Gould and defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff. The most significant inactive for the Cowboys is defensive end Demarcus Lawrence.
