Morgan was treated for an apparent, self-inflicted gunshot wound on Jan. 31, FOX Sports reports. Among the final cuts from Saints training camp in 2015, Morgan failed to take an NFL snap for the first time since he was selected in the 2008 draft. While the recent incident brings with it a misdemeanor charge of reckless use of a firearm, it remains to be seen if he'll be a part of an offseason program in anticipation of the 2016 season.
The Saints cut ties with wide receiver Josh Morgan on Saturday, reports ESPN. Morgan caught 10 passes for 70 yards in 14 games last season.
A pair of Bears made the tiniest of contributions Sunday against the victorious Lions. Wideout Josh Morgan caught two passes for two yards while tight end Dante Rosario snagged one for one yard.
The Bears got a few offensive contributions in Monday's 31-15 home loss to the Saints. Among them, rookie running back Ka'Deem Carey caught all three of his targets for 39 yards and had a 4-yard carry. Tight end Dante Rosario made a 4-yard catch. Wideout Josh Morgan was targeted once without a catch. They'll play the Lions in Week 16.
Bears backup pass catchers Marquess Wilson and Josh Morgan did little Week 14 against the Cowboys. Wilson did receive five targets, but only came up with two receptions. He finished with 19 yards. Morgan hauled in one pass, gaining 8 yards. Both players will look for more Week 15 against the Saints.
