Marquess Wilson (groin) caught 4-of-5 targets for 44 yards in Thursday's win over the Packers.
Wilson narrowly missed on his second touchdown of the season, as an official review on his 19-yard, second-quarter reception determined that his knee went down before the ball crossed the goal line. Still, it was an encouraging performance for Wilson, who has now amassed 146 receiving yards over the last two weeks to put himself on the radar as a potential waiver-wire pickup.
Marquess Wilson (groin) practiced in full Tuesday, the Chicago Bears ' official site reports.
Estimated as a limited participant in Monday's walkthrough session, Wilson has cleared himself for active status in Week 12 due to his ability to take on a full allotment of reps Tuesday. His eventual workload Thursday at Green Bay will depend on whether Alshon Jeffery (groin) is able to take the field, but the expected return of Matt Forte (knee) may have already sealed Wilson's fate. Nevertheless, Wilson is coming off one of his most productive outings of the season, as he tallied four receptions of more than 20 yards en route to 102 yards overall on seven targets.
Marquess Wilson (groin) was listed as a limited participant on Monday's injury report, Chicago Bears ' official site reports.
Wilson recorded the first 100-yard outing of his career Sunday versus the Broncos, accruing 102 yards in all on the backs of four receptions and seven targets. The outing was made possible by absences from Alshon Jeffery (groin) and Eddie Royal (knee), but Jeffery was able to match Wilson's activity level on the first report of the week. With Thursday's divisional outing at Green Bay on tap, two practices remain for the wide-receiver situation to parse itself out, but further DNPs from Jeffery and/or Royal would place additional work on Wilson's shoulders.
Marquess Wilson had four catches on seven targets for a game-high 102 yards Sunday against the Broncos.
With Alshon Jeffery (groin) and Eddie Royal (knee) both sidelined, Wilson took on a big part of the offensive load, though the Chicago Bears were unable to score a touchdown until Jeremy Langford ran one in with 24 seconds left in the game. The seven targets were the most Wilson has had since Week 5 against the Chiefs, but he could see them drop down again if Jeffery is able to return in Week 12 against the Packers.
Marquess Wilson reeled in just one of three targets for one yard in Sunday's win over the Rams.
The Chicago Bears ' passing game has looked crisp the last two weeks under a rejuvenated Jay Cutler, but Wilson hasn't seen much involved in the action. He's seen exactly six targets during that span, reeling in only two passes for 16 yards. Both of those games have come without No. 2 wideout Eddie Royal available, and it appears Zach Miller (five catches, 107 yards, two touchdowns in Week 10) may have also inched ahead of Wilson in the pecking order for targets. The forthcoming return of Royal and emergence of Miller dim Wilson's rest-of-season outlook, making him a droppable commodity in most formats.
