Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was limited Thursday with a hamstring strain.

Chicago also worked out without quarterback Jay Cutler, wide receiver Eddie Royal and running back Jeremy Langford on Thursday ahead of Sunday’s date with the Jacksonville Jaguars at Soldier Field.

Jeffery has 13 receptions in the last three games since Cutler injured his right thumb.

Jeffery signed a $14.599 million franchise tender for 2016 after injuries derailed his 2015 season. He started only nine games last season and caught 54 passes for 807 yards with four touchdowns.

He’s averaging 17.9 yards per reception in 2016 but has not scored after hauling in 21 touchdowns in his first 38 starts.

Royal and tight end Zach Miller are tied for the team lead with 25 receptions.

Head coach John Fox said after Chicago lost at Indianapolis last week that the Bears “don’t have a plan” at quarterback with Cutler recovering.
