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.
Wilson sits firmly behind Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White on the depth chart, and most likely Eddie Royal as well, but given Jeffery's and White's injury histories, his roster spot is presumably safe for the time being. However, Wilson is coming off a season-ending foot injury and could use all the snaps he's afforded to learn offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains' system.
Marquess Wilson (foot) was placed on IR on Saturday.
Wilson's foot injury proves season-ending, and leaves an already beat-up group of Chicago pass catchers even thinner. Wilson heads into his contract year with a modest but efficient total of 28 catches for 464 yards and one touchdown on 51 targets (9.1 YPT).
Marquess Wilson (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Redskins.
Unable to practice all week, Wilson will miss a second straight game. Eddie Royal (knee) seemingly has a shot to play for the first time since Week 8, but if he's ultimately unable to do so, Josh Bellamy and Marc Mariani will be the top options at wide receiver behind Alshon Jeffery.
