Wims (coach's decision) is listed as inactive for Sunday's contest against the Lions, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Wims will be a healthy scratch after earning just six offensive snaps during the Bears' Week 9 blowout win over the Bills. Chicago will deploy four active receivers against the Lions with Kevin White (coach's decision) also sidelined.
Wims caught four of five targets for 114 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's 27-20 preseason win over the Chiefs.
Wims starred on a touchdown drive in the second quarter, hauling in a 54-yard reception before catching a seven-yard touchdown pass to cap it off. He wound up leading the team in targets, catches and yards on the day, making his 89-yard performance in the preseason opener look less like a fluke. Wims has dealt with injuries over the last couple of weeks, but when healthy he's looked like a viable weapon for a team lacking playmakers on the outside. He should receive some playing time in the final preseason contest next week, but it would seem he's already well on his way to claiming a roster spot.
Wims (quadriceps) returned to practice Sunday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Wims injured his right quad at Saturday's practice, but the injury must not be too serious as the rookie receiver is back after only one day. Wims has impressed so far this preseason, racking up nine catches for 95 yards in two games.
Wims sustained a right quadriceps injury at practice Saturday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Wims has been a nice surprise as a seventh-round pick out of Georgia. He produced well in the Hall of Fame Game loss to the Ravens and has nine catches for 95 yards in two preseason games. At 6-foot-4, 215 pounds, Wims has the size to compete with NFL cornerbacks.
Wims caught seven passes for 89 yards in Thursday's loss to the Ravens.
Wims primarily did his damage with Tyler Bray at quarterback while facing the deepest of the Ravens' reserves. The rookie led the team in all receiving categories, including 10 targets. Although he certainly played well, unless he begins to have success while playing meaningful preseason snaps, he'll still have his work cut out for him to earn a spot on the 53-man roster.
