Chicago Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery suffered a fracture in his right hand during Sunday's 41-3 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, a source familiar with the situation told ESPNChicago.com's Jeff Dickerson.

Jeffery suffered the injury while catching a touchdown pass, although the exact cause is unknown.

His hand is in a cast and he's expected to miss a couple of game, but he won't need surgery, according to the source.

The Bears may sign another receiver as soon as Tuesday, a source told ESPNChicago.com's Michael C. Wright.
