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.
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.
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, NJ.com 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.
Wilson didn't practice Tuesday due to a hip injury, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Wilson is likely 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 at this time 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.
