Wilson (knee) has been activated from the non-football injury list and is now eligible to practice and play, Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
The 2017 seventh-round pick will have a few practices and one preseason game Thursday in Indianapolis to prove he can be a capable safety in the league. His most likely way onto the 53-man roster is taking the special teams route, though.
Wilson, the Bengals' sixth-round pick from the University of Houston, aggravated a knee injury during position drills and has been placed on the active/non-football injury list, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
Wilson was working at safety instead of corner before the injury. He can practice whenever he's medically cleared and still counts against the Bengals' 90-man roster.
Wilson is dealing with a knee injury and has yet to participate fully in a practice since the start of rookie minicamp, Jim Owczarski of Cincinnati.com reports.
When and how the injury occurred is unknown at this time. Wilson has been able to dress for practice, so a return to a heavier workload figures to be around the corner. The sixth-round pick will enter training camp competing for a spot on the final roster.
Yet another nice pick for the Bengals. Wilson (5-foot-10, 198 pounds) is an excellent athlete and was a standout performer on one of college football's best defenses. At the Houston pro day he logged a 4.40-second 40, a 41-inch vertical and a 133-inch broad jump. He played some running back at Houston, but he's presumably a corner to the Bengals.
