In mid-June, Wilson re-fractured his left foot, which has sidelined him in the interim. With at least six games of this season wiped away, he'll be the fourth wideout, at best, in the Bears' current corps of wideouts.
During mandatory minicamp in June, Wilson sustained a fracture to his left foot, which remains encased in a walking boot. There's no telling when he'll be given the all-clear to take the field, but when he does, he'll have to fend off Marc Mariani, among others, for slotting in the Bears' corps of wideouts.
Wilson, who had surgery to repair a fractured left foot this spring, is sporting a walking boot at this stage, with no concrete timetable for his return outlined. The Bears' wideout depth chart is currently topped by Alshon Jeffery, Kevin White and Eddie Royal, with the likes of Josh Bellamy, Marc Mariani, Daniel Braverman, Cameron Meredith and Deonte Thompson jostling for slotting behind the top trio.
Wilson, who re-fractured his left foot Tuesday, is out indefinitely.
Per the report, Wilson -- who missed the last five games of the 2015 season after breaking the same foot -- will undergo surgery this coming Monday and is thus a candidate to open the season on the PUP list. With Wilson ailing, look for Eddie Royal, Josh Bellamy and Marc Mariani, as well as Cameron Meredith, Daniel Braverman and Deonte Thompson to jostle for slotting on the Bears' wideout depth chart behind top options Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White.
Wilson was observed leaving the practice early for undisclosed reasons, but now it appears he has re-fractured the left foot that forced him out of Chicago's final five contests. His status for Week 1 is up in the air, but Wilson will definitely be a candidate to begin the season on the PUP list. Joshua Bellamy, Marc Mariani, Cameron Meredith and seventh-round rookie Daniel Braverman all stand to see extended looks in Wilson's absence.
