Bears' Markus Wheaton: Could debut against former team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears are hopeful Wheaton (finger) can return for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh, Larry Mayer of the team's official site reports.

A limited practice participant all last week, Wheaton took a step forward to full participation Wednesday. The Bears still need to make sure he's entirely comfortable catching the ball just five weeks removed from finger surgery, but it seems Wheaton's at least on the right track to suit up against this former team. Given the lack of talent around him, it shouldn't take long before he emerges as one of Mike Glennon's preferred targets. The Bears hope Wheaton's speed can open up the field for Zach Miller, Kendall Wright and Tarik Cohen on shorter routes.

Bears' Markus Wheaton: Left inactive for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheaton (finger) is inactive Sunday for the Bears' Week 2 game against the Buccaneers, Jeff Dickerson of reports.

Heading into the week, the Bears were hopeful that Wheaton would be able to make his season debut Sunday and offer a lift to an injury riddled receiving group, but he'll need more time off in order for his broken digit to heal. On a positive note, Wheaton was able to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday through Friday, so it wouldn't be surprising if he advanced to a full practice participant by next week, which would help his case for suiting up in the Week 3 matchup with the Steelers.

Bears' Markus Wheaton: Unlikely to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheaton (finger) is a long shot to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, according to's Ian Rapoport.

Wheaton was unable to play in Week 1 because of the injury, and his potential continued absence could open up more snaps for Deonte Thompson or Tre McBride, with Josh Bellamy (ankle) also questionable to play.

Bears' Markus Wheaton: Uncertain for Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheaton (finger) was limited at Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, Patrick Finley of The Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The Chicago Tribune's Rich Campbell doesn't expect Wheaton to play but also wasn't ready to rule the receiver out. Limited at practice all week, Wheaton could come down to a game-time decision for a team that badly needs any help it can get at wide receiver. With Josh Bellamy (ankle) also questionable, the Bears may end up starting Deonte Thompson or Tre McBride, both of whom have more experience returning kicks than catching passes. Wheaton does at least seem to be on track for Week 3, if nothing else.

Bears' Markus Wheaton: Limited again Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheaton (finger) was a limited participant in the Bears' practice Thursday, Jenna Laine of reports.

Though Wheaton has yet to return to full practice, his limited participation in back-to-back days nonetheless bodes well for his chances of suiting up Week 2 against the Buccaneers. It's still likely that Wheaton will be deemed questionable heading into the weekend, but if he practices again Friday in some capacity, he'll likely be on the field two days later. Wheaton could carve out a sizable role in the Bears' passing attack right away, as the roster is sorely lacking in premium receiving options.
