New England Patriots wide receiver Nelson Agholor missed the team's Week 6 win over the Cleveland Browns with a hamstring injury, but he has a chance to return in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears.

Agholor played just seven snaps in Week 5 due to the injury, but he returned to practice this week. That's a good sign for Mac Jones, who is expected to play in Week 7, as Agholor is arguably the team's best deep threat.

If Agholor is unable to go, it could lead to an even bigger role for rookie Tyquan Thornton, who played 57 percent of the team's snaps in Week 6 and scored two touchdowns.

Agholor may be a player to stay away from for prop bettors, as he could be limited or simply not play at all if his hamstring isn't fully ready to go. Soft-tissue injuries are always tough, especially for receivers, to return from quickly.

Best Nelson Agholor Prop Bets vs. Bears in NFL Week 7

Agholor does have a prop to score a touchdown this week, something that is usually worth a sprinkle in Patriots games given his ability to stretch the field. However, with DeVante Parker, Jakobi Meyers and Tyquan Thornton all playing well, it will be interesting to see how big of a role Agholor even has if he is healthy.

This season, Agholor has one touchdown catch, which came in Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. That was by far Agholor's best game, as he caught all six of his targets for 110 yards.
