"We're hoping he'll be fine," Price said. "We have until Saturday. He ran around, he got good work, we just didn't want him making major cuts as fast as he can."
Price also said he wasn't worried about Jeffery missing a full week of workouts.
"He's had 30 practices already," Price said.
Jeffery remains confident he'll be ready Saturday.
"It's getting better, it's a lot better than it was," he said. "I'll be close to 100 percent. (Not practicing) is always a worry with the speed and tempo."
Jeffery definitely won't be returning kickoffs, as those duties will fall to Mike Edwards, Autrey Golden and Xay Williams. The long-term plan this year was to phase the true freshmen in and Jeffery out of the kickoff return game and Jeffery's injury has pushed that to the short-term.
