The Chicago Bears are being cautious with Alshon Jeffery's calf injury, as FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports that he may be on a "pitch count" against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

Jeffery is one of Chicago's most dynamic offensive players, and the Bears may have concern about his longterm health and availability. If the wide receiver's snaps are limited on Sunday, he'll need to make the most of them -- the Packers will be tough to beat without him.
