Wilson, a seventh-round pick three seasons ago, is holding his own within the wide receiver battle for the Bears during organized team activities despite Alshon Jeffery, Eddie Royal and first-round pick Kevin White being on the roster.
"It was probably a frustrating start to his career, but he caught our eye as a guy that we were impressed with on the tape, albeit limited tape and I've liked what I've seen during these first six practice opportunities," head coach John Fox said.
Wilson -- 6-foot-4 -- was limited to just 17 receptions for 140 yards and a touchdown last season because a broken collarbone limited him to seven games.
"He’ll need to add some bulk in the team’s conditioning program as he’s not considered a speedster capable of blowing past corners at the line of scrimmage," the website said. Wilson suffered a fractured clavicle in training camp last year, then returned to catch 17 passes for 140 yards and a touchdown in seven games.
The Bears, who added slot receiver Eddie Royal via free agency, figure to draft at least one wideout. Chicago owns the No. 7 pick overall.
The Bears are 6-point underdogs for Sunday's game.
Getting a chance to play more with star wide receiver Brandon Marshall sidelined by lung and rib injuries,
Wilson wasn't exactly a game-breaker, with none of his catches going for more than 17 yards, but then again, he was working with a backup quarterback in Jimmy Clausen. With Clausen at quarterback and Jeffery on the other side of the field, Wilson is a long shot for big numbers in Fantasy, but he proved to be a reliable enough target to make an impact in PPR leagues, if you need help there.
Wilson finished with seven receptions for 66 yards. He was targeted 10 times. He will try to take his momentum and run with it when the team concludes its season next Sunday at Minnesota.
