The 2016 season has been a tough one for the Chicago Bears. They’ve dealt with a quarterback controversy, a suspect defense and shake-ups across the roster.
Bad news continues for the #Bears: WR Alshon Jeffery suspended for the team’s next four games for violating the NFL policy on PEDs.

The lone bright patch has been the play of star receiver Alshon Jeffery, who’s been a catalyst for a struggling offense. With the return of Jay Cutler, Jeffery has got back to catching passes and working toward another productive season.

The Bears’ small mercy took a turn for the worse today, however, with the NFL announcing that Jeffery would be suspended for four games after allegedly violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy.

The move is a death blow to the already slim chance of a Chicago turnaround this season, as now the offense has no playmaking out wide or under center.
At least Chicago has the Cubs.
