The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs expects Marquess Wilson (foot) to open the season on reserve/PUP.

Wilson re-broke his left foot at minicamp last week and underwent surgery earlier this week. He's going to be sidelined for months. If Wilson does end up on PUP, he won't be eligible to return until after Week 6. With Wilson sidelined, Biggs expects Josh Bellamy to be next man up as the No. 4 receiver.

Marquess Wilson re-broke his left foot at minicamp on Tuesday and could start the season on reserve/PUP.

Wilson initially broke his left foot in a Week 13 practice last season and required post-season surgery. He was just easing back into action. Coach John Fox conceded Wilson is in serious question for Week 1. Entering the final year of his rookie deal, 2016 is shaping up as a potentially lost season for Wilson. He was the favorite for No. 4 wideout duties behind Alshon Jeffery, Kevin White, and Eddie Royal.

ESPN Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson believes WR Marquess Wilson (foot) is on the roster bubble.

Wilson performed well with Alshon Jeffery and Eddie Royal sidelined last season, but he ended the year on injured reserve with a foot injury. Injuries have been a steady part of Wilson's career thus far, but his biggest enemy this season could be special teams. With Jeffery, Royal and Kevin White locked in atop the depth chart, the No. 4 in Chicago will need to contribute in the kicking game. Wilson is more talented than Marc Mariani, Josh Bellamy, and Deonte Thompson, but all three have an edge on special teams.

Bears WR Marquess Wilson's (injured reserve) broken left foot required surgery.

It's unclear if Wilson is dealing with a dreaded "Lisfranc" injury, but foot surgery is never good news for a receiver. Wilson's 2016 was already going to be make or break, and now it's not a guarantee he'll be 100 percent before camp. Still only 23 years old, Wilson is a hold in Dynasty leagues.

Bears placed WR Marquess Wilson on season-ending injured reserve with a foot injury.

Wilson has not practiced since hurting his foot in training last week. It is unlikely the injury is serious considering Wilson was not placed on injured reserve immediately, but he may have been a couple weeks away. The 2013 seventh-rounder showed some promise again this season, but he has yet to develop into a consistent playmaker. He will be given at least one more shot to earn a role in the final year of his rookie deal next season.

Marquess Wilson (foot) is out for Week 14 against the Redskins.

Wilson hasn't been on the field since hurting his foot at practice last week. Eddie Royal (knee) is tentatively expected to play though the Bears are listing him as questionable. With Wilson and Martellus Bennett (ribs) both out, Royal and Alshon Jeffery should have a busy day on Sunday.

Marquess Wilson (foot) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Unless Wilson gets in at least a "limited" practice on Friday, it's very unlikely we'll see him Sunday against the Redskins. With Martellus Bennett (ribs) also sidelined, Alshon Jeffery and perhaps Eddie Royal should be in line for plenty of targets.

Marquess Wilson (foot) is not practicing Wednesday.

He missed Week 13 with a foot injury and doesn't seem likely to play Sunday against the Redskins. Eddie Royal (knee) returned to practice Wednesday.
Wed, Dec 9, 2015 03:32:00 PM

Marquess Wilson (foot) is out for Week 13 against the 49ers.

Wilson injured his foot on the last play of Wednesday's practice and hasn't been on the field since. With Wilson and Eddie Royal (knee) both out, Alshon Jeffery should see an almost unlimited number of targets on Sunday. He's a top-10 play this week.
Fri, Dec 4, 2015 02:01:00 PM

Marquess Wilson was held out of Thursday's practice after injuring his foot in Wednesday's session.

What exactly do the Bears do in practice? Their wideouts can't seem to stop getting hurt on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Wilson's Week 13 status is now murky. Another "DNP" on Friday would almost certainly mean he'll sit against the 49ers.

Marquess Wilson secured four of five targets for 44 yards in the Bears' Week 12 win over the Packers.

This wasn’t the shootout we were expecting but Wilson made the most of his limited targets. The lousy weather conditions prevented Jay Cutler from looking deep, so instead he mostly opted for screen passes and short sideline routes. That played to Wilson’s strength as he proved very explosive whenever Cutler put him in space. Alshon Jeffery is still the go-to guy but Wilson does carry some sleeper value, particularly while Martellus Bennett and Eddie Royal are out with injuries.
Fri, Nov 27, 2015 01:00:00 AM

Marquess Wilson caught 4-of-7 targets for 102 yards in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Broncos.

Wilson's seven targets were a team high. He showed good YAC ability, but was tackled short of the end-zone on a 40-yard catch in the fourth quarter. Wilson is a strong play whenever Alshon Jeffery and Eddie Royal sit. He'll remain the No. 1 receiver if Jeffery can't return on a short week.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 05:10:00 PM

Marquess Wilson caught 1-of-3 targets for one yard in the Bears' Week 10 win over the Rams.

Even with Eddie Royal (knee) out the past two games, Wilson has been a non-factor.
Sun, Nov 15, 2015 06:44:00 PM

Marquess Wilson caught 1-of-3 targets for 15 yards in the Bears' Week 9 win over the Chargers on Monday night.

Wilson got the start as the No. 2 receiver in place of an injured Eddie Royal (knee), but was an afterthought behind target hogs Alshon Jeffery (16) and Martellus Bennett (nine), while Jeremy Langford touched the ball 21 times. Wilson will be a WR5 next week on the road against the Rams.
