Bears WR Jeffery sidelined against Carolina because of right hand injury

Chicago Bears backup receiver Alshon Jeffery was inactive for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers because of a right hand injury.

Jeffery was injured against Jacksonville on Oct. 7. The Bears were off the following week, and he sat out Monday night against Detroit.

The Panthers shuffled their lineup, with Luke Kuechly moving from weakside linebacker to middle linebacker with Jon Beason on injured reserve. Thomas Davis got the nod at weakside linebacker, and Carolina made some switches on the offensive line, starting Jeff Byers at right guard and moving Byron Bell to right tackle.
