Wilson had been sidelined since last week, but coach Andy Reid designated the injury relatively minor. He's now back at practice and will likely be ready for full-go in the near future.

Wilson suffered the injury during Tuesday's practice, and should be considered day-to-day for the time being given the available information. While his roster spot is not in any danger, any missed time on Wilson's behalf could give teammates Rod Streater and Chris Conley a leg up in the competition for the Chiefs' No. 2 wideout job behind entrenched starter Jeremy Maclin.
Assuming the injury isn't serious, Wilson should still have plenty of time to fight for a role as the No. 2 or 3 wideout. He served as Kansas City's No. 2 for most of last season, but there's superior competition this time around, with veteran Rod Streater and 2015 third-rounder Chris Conley also in the mix for a starting job. Even if he loses out, the 5-foot-9 Wilson could lock down a role in the slot, which might ultimately be his best fit in the NFL.
Wilson's smaller frame (5-foot-9) certainly fits more the mold of a slot receiver, but a permanent shift inside could lead to less playing time in a
