Marquess Wilson: Let go by Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles released Wilson on Tuesday.

Wilson posted a promising 2015 campaign with the Bears, totaling 28 catches for 464 yards and a touchdown while still just 22 years old. He hasn't recaptured that season since, last touching the field on Sundays during the 2016 campaign. After signing a future deal with the Eagles in January, he hasn't done enough since to earn himself a spot when training camp opens Wednesday. Given the team's depth at the position, there's still a decent chance Wilson finds a home on another roster for training camp.

Eagles' Marquess Wilson: Inks future deal with Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson signed a reserve/future contract with the Eagles on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Wilson didn't suit up for a game in the 2017 campaign, partially because he battled a hip injury late into preseason. Through his five seasons in the NFL, Wilson has 56 receptions on 99 targets for 764 yards and three touchdowns. The Eagles currently have a talented receiving corps, so Wilson will likely be a depth asset if he makes the 53-man roster in 2018.

Marquess Wilson: Waived by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets opted to waive Wilson (hip) on Wednesday, The New York Daily News reports.

Wilson was picked up by the club in June in order to add depth to a thin receiving group. He tallied three catches for 20 yards in their first preseason matchup against the Titans, but was sidelined in Week 2.

Jets' Marquess Wilson: Doubtful to face Lions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (hip) did not practice Wednesday or Thursday after injuring his hip in practice Tuesday, and he is doubtful to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Lions, reports.

The Jets' wide receiver depth chart is very deep, though it's deep with players and not necessarily impact players, which could allow Wilson to move up quickly if he can overcome his hip issue and impress in the remaining preseason games.

Jets' Marquess Wilson: Doesn't practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson didn't practice Tuesday due to a hip injury, Rich Cimini of reports.

Wilson likely is fighting for one of the last receiver slots on the Jets' depth chart, and his absence from practice won't help his cause. It's unclear how long he'll be out, but the team has given no indication that it'll be an extended period. Myles White and Frankie Hammond figure to be the beneficiaries of some added reps with Wilson out.

Jets' Marquess Wilson: Signs with Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (foot) signed a contract with the Jets on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of reports.

Given the departure of Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, the Jets now have a massive void at wide receiver heading into training camp. As a result, it appears they'll be open to plenty of competition with a roster that currently holds 14 wideouts -- all of whom have four years or less experience in the league. Previously with the Bears, Wilson recorded 56 receptions and three touchdowns over four seasons, but he failed to make a lasting impact in the team's offensive game plan. The 6-foot-4 Wilson -- selected by Chicago in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft - suited up in just three games in 2016 and ended his campaign on IR with a broken foot. He'll now get a fresh start with a team that definitely has some job openings at his position.

Bears' Marquess Wilson: Set to hit unrestricted free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (foot) is set to become an unrestricted free agent, reports.

A 2013 seventh-round selection, Wilson had multiple chances to serve as either the Bears' second or third receiver, but he never proved worthy of a key role, catching only 56 passes for 777 yards and three touchdowns in 31 games. Coming off an injury-marred season, he'll presumably have to settle for a modest contract, be it with the Bears or another franchise. With Alshon Jeffery also set to hit free agency and Eddie Royal (toe) shaping up as a likely cap casualty, the Chicago receiving corps may be left in the hands of Cameron Meredith and Kevin White (fibula).

Bears' Marquess Wilson: Another injury-marred campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson caught 16 passes for 160 yards and one touchdown in three 2016 games before suffering a broken foot and landing on injured reserve on December 17.

Wilson had caught eight passes for 125 yards and a touchdown against the Titans on November 27, and unfortunately, he was injured in the next game. He also showed signs of promise when posting three games with at least 80 yards over the last eight games of 2015, and he's now set to become a free agent this off-season. He clearly has plenty of talent, but after playing in just 31 of 64 possible games in his career, he'll need to shake the injury bug to become a consistent fantasy option.

Bears' Marquess Wilson: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (foot) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Wilson was recently diagnosed with a broken foot and will not recover in time to play again this season, so the Bears placed him on IR to open up a roster spot, one which was filled by fellow receiver Alshon Jeffery.

Bears' Marquess Wilson: Out indefinitely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson has broken his left foot and will be out indefinitely, according to coach John Fox.

Wilson's latest setback marks the third time he's broken the same foot since last December. While that'll obviously frustrate him after recently returning from his second break, it also raises questions regarding Wilson's long-term outlook. In the immediate future, it wouldn't be surprising if Wilson is placed on IR over the weekend to open a roster spot for fellow wideout Alshon Jeffery to return from suspension and face the Packers on Sunday.

Bears' Marquess Wilson: Suffers setback with foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (groin) has suffered a setback with his left foot, resulting in no practice reps Thursday, Jeff Dickerson of reports. Speaking of the ailment, head coach John Fox noted that Wilson is tending to "kind of a little bit the same issue [as earlier in the year] and the doctors are evaluating that."

The injury marks Wilson's third in a little more than a year with his left foot, which may conspire to end his season for the second consecutive season. After undergoing surgery on a left foot fracture last December, he broke the same foot during mandatory minicamp in the offseason, delaying his first appearance of this campaign until Week 11. He shined with eight catches for 125 yards and one touchdown against the Titans in his second game back in the fold, but a groin injury in the interim has resulted in one target before last Sunday's DNP in Detroit. While his immediate status is currently up in the air, Fox's comment doesn't provide the brightest outlook for Wilson.

Bears' Marquess Wilson: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (groin) logged a limited practice Wednesday.

Wilson is on pace to record more practice reps than a week ago, as long as he sustains limited sessions through Friday. Of course, an upgrade to full would put him on track to play Sunday against the Packers, but the next two days will ultimately give an indication whether that's possible.

Bears' Marquess Wilson: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (groin) is listed as inactive Sunday in Detroit.

Wilson managed just four snaps last Sunday against the 49ers and two limited practices in the ensuing week of prep. Reading the tea leaves, his absence shouldn't be much of a shock, as the Bears are in evaluation mode with a 3-9 record in tow. Both Wilson and Eddie Royal (toe) are unavailable Sunday, allowing more targets for the likes of Cameron Meredith, Josh Bellamy, Deonte Thompson, and Daniel Brown.

Bears' Marquess Wilson: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Wilson's groin injury suffered last Sunday restricted him to just two limited practice sessions this week. That lack of involvement has put Wilson's status in question heading into the weekend, when the Bears are already expected to be without top wideout Eddie Royal (toe) for Sunday's contest. If Royal is ultimately joined by Wilson in being deemed inactive Sunday, Cameron Meredith would stand alone as Chicago's best receiving threat.

Bears' Marquess Wilson: Limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (groin) was a limited practice participant Thursday.

Wilson was contained to four snaps in Sunday's snow-laden tilt against the 49ers due to a groin injury, which kept him off the practice field to kick off preparation for Week 14. Logging a limited session Thursday is a step in the right direction and represents more activity than fellow wideout Eddie Royal, who continues to nurse a toe injury. If he's made available Sunday in Detroit, Wilson would have to contend with fellow wide receivers Cameron Meredith and Deonte Thompson for snaps, at the very least, while Royal and Josh Bellamy (shoulder) may be active as well.

Bears' Marquess Wilson: DNP on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (groin) didn't practice Wednesday, Jeff Dickerson of reports.

In his attempt to back up an eight-catch, 125-yard effort from Week 12, Wilson was stymied by constant snowfall Sunday against the 49ers and only lasted four snaps before sustaining a game-ending groin injury. He won't press his luck to start preparation for Sunday's contest in Detroit, but two sessions are left to make an impression on the coaching and training staffs. If he's deemed inactive, he may join Eddie Royal (toe) on the sideline, which could leave fellow wideouts Cameron Meredith, Deonte Thompson, and Josh Bellamy unfettered access to targets if the aforementioned duo had to sit Sunday.

Bears' Marquess Wilson: Suffers groin injury Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson sustained a groin injury during Sunday's win against the 49ers and didn't return.

Wilson was only targeted one time -- the 6:05 mark of the first quarter -- and couldn't haul in the pass from Matt Barkley. The passing attacks were more or less dreadful from both sides on a day that featured a constant snowfall, but Wilson didn't stick around long enough to connect with Barkley once he got a rhythm in the second half. As Week 14 prep gets underway Wednesday, Wilson's practice participation will shed light on his health.

Bears' Marquess Wilson: Huge performance in Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson caught eight passes for 125 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Titans.

Wilson benefited greatly from the fact that the Bears were being blown out for the entire second half, which resulted in a team-high 11 targets. After burning Titans cornerback Perrish Cox on a slant route for a fourth-quarter touchdown, he then dropped a potential second score on the next drive. His production will likely have him atop waiver wire lists for many fantasy owners this week, but it should be noted that four different Chicago receivers had at least nine targets, so he wasn't a clear primary option in the passing game. However, he's worth a look as a depth option in most fantasy leagues.

Bears' Marquess Wilson: Unlisted for Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (foot) isn't listed on the Bears' final injury report of the week.

On Friday, Wilson finally turned in a full practice for the first time in roughly a year, lending credence to nearly tip-top health. With Alshon Jeffery (suspension) and Zach Miller (foot) down for the count, it'll be interesting to see if Wilson has built up a rapport with likely starting quarterback Matt Barkley, especially with fellow wideout Eddie Royal (toe) questionable for the contest.

Bears' Marquess Wilson: Limited Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (foot) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday.

Making his season debut Sunday against the Giants in New York, Wilson was among four Bears wideouts to log between 22 and 29 snaps, which was well behind Cameron Meredith's 56. Typically, a suspension like Alshon Jeffery's has a trickle-down effect for those left behind at his position, but they also need competent quarterback play in order to do so. Because Jay Cutler (shoulder) will likely hand off QB duties to Matt Barkley on Sunday versus the Titans, Wilson will be hard-pressed to make an impact in the box score, even if his snap count experiences an uptick.
