Wheaton returned to practice after missing 13 days due to an appendectomy, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reports.

Now that he's back in action, Wheaton will continue to compete for a spot on the depth chart. He'll have a good chance of earning a role as a starter on the outside in three-receiver sets, as Cameron Meredith has performed very well in the slot. However, nothing's been determined, and this situation may not have clarity until after the third preseason game.
