The Chicago Bears head to the Big Apple to play the New York Jets on Monday Night football, but the status of their top wide receiver duo of Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery will be in doubt again. Both of their top receivers are listed as Questionable on the team’s final injury report of the week.

Both Marshall and Jeffery were listed as Questionable last week and both of course suited up. Jeffery gutted it out with a bad hamstring and clearly labored running, but still managed a few catches and also a couple of pass interference penalties. Marshall turned in a great performance with three touchdown catches including one of the best catches you’ll see for a score.
If I had to guess, I’d expect both to give it a go on Monday night. Clearly, the dilemma for fantasy football players is the game isn’t until Monday Night. If you’d like to hedge your bets, go dump somebody at the end of your bench and pick up Santonio Holmes. If either Marshall or Jeffery can’t go, you can expect to see more from Holmes to go against his former team. Another option if you’re desperate is Josh Morgan who sat out last week’s game with a groin injury, but is listed as Probable this week.
