Bears coach John Fox said Marquess Wilson re-broke his left foot.

He's almost certainly out for the year and another surgery could be forthcoming. The Bears are expected to place him on injured reserve Saturday to make room for Alshon Jeffery, who just finished serving a four-game PED suspension. Wilson has broken his foot at least three times in the last two seasons. He's shown promise when healthy but obviously has major durability concerns. Wilson will probably hear crickets when he hits the free agent market this offseason.

Marquess Wilson's foot issue is related to the injury that held him out the first 10 games of the season.

It has him questionable bordering on doubtful for the rest of the season. A 2013 seventh-rounder, Wilson is headed for free agency. He'll be entering with just 56 career catches and a long and winding injury history.

Marquess Wilson (foot) didn't practice on Thursday.

It's a downgrade from Wednesday when Wilson put in a limited session. Wilson sat out last week's game with a groin injury but showed up on Thursday's report with a foot issue. He's been dealing with foot problems off and on for over a year. Wilson's status for Week 15 appears to be in doubt, but at least the Bears are getting Alshon Jeffery back this week.

Marquess Wilson (groin) is inactive for Week 14 against the Lions.

Josh Bellamy and Cameron Meredith will operate as the Bears' top-two receivers with Wilson and Eddie Royal (always hurt) on the shelf. The rest of Chicago's Week 14 inactives are CB DeVante Bausby, CB Johnthan Banks, S DeAndre Houston-Carson, DL C.J. Wilson, and OT Mike Adams.

Marquess Wilson (groin) is questionable for Week 14 against the Lions.

Wilson was able to practice on a limited basis Thursday and Friday. He will likely play, but Wilson is too risky to trust in fantasy lineups after his four-snap debacle last week. Josh Bellamy is looking like Chicago's No. 1 receiver. What a world.

Marquess Wilson (groin) returned to Bears practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

It gives Wilson a chance to suit up against the Lions, but it's far from certain. Unfortunately, the Bears are a bottom-three team when it comes to injury truthfulness, so we could go into Sunday morning lacking a clear idea of Wilson's status. If Wilson does play, he'll be hard to trust as a WR4. He'll be at less than 100 percent with Matt Barkley playing quarterback.

Marquess Wilson (groin) did not practice Wednesday.

Neither did Eddie Royal (toe), leaving Josh Bellamy and Cameron Meredith as the Bears' top two receivers with Daniel Brown at tight end. The Bears are going to ride Jordan Howard as hard as they can the final four weeks.

Marquess Wilson suffered a groin injury in Week 13 against the 49ers.

Wilson dropped his only target before going down. He missed the entire second half but the injury wasn't reported until after the game. Josh Bellamy saw the most snaps opposite Cameron Meredith and would likely start if Wilson misses time.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 04:32:00 PM

Marquess Wilson caught 8-of-11 targets for 125 yards and a touchdown in Week 12 against the Titans.

Wilson was Matt Barkley's preferred option, finishing with more yards and targets than Cameron Meredith. He should have had a bigger game, but dropped two would-be touchdowns. With a matchup against the 49ers, Wilson is a worth a look on waivers as a Week 13 streaming option.
Sun, Nov 27, 2016 06:25:00 PM

Marquess Wilson (foot) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Wilson will play against the Titans, and could be the No. 2 receiver if always-injured Eddie Royal (toe) sits.
Thu, Nov 24, 2016 03:39:00 PM

Marquess Wilson caught 1-of-4 targets for 35 yards in the Bears' Week 11 loss to the Giants.

Wilson's grab was the Bears' longest play of the day. With Alshon Jeffery suspended, Zach Miller hurt, Cameron Meredith unproven and Eddie Royal injury prone, the Bears are going to have to give Wilson looks down the stretch. He's not a bad WR5 flier if you're desperate for help at wideout.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 06:21:00 PM

Marquess Wilson (foot) is questionable for Week 11 against the Giants.

Activated off the PUP Tuesday, Wilson is likely to make his season debut after getting in three limited practices. He should have a role with Alshon Jeffery suspended, but he is nothing more than a bench stash in deeper leagues.
Fri, Nov 18, 2016 09:10:00 PM

Marquess Wilson (foot) was limited in Wednesday and Thursday's practices.

It's unclear if Wilson is ready to make his 2016 debut after coming off the PUP list on Tuesday. If Wilson plays against the Giants, he'll be the No. 3 receiver for a team that just lost Alshon Jeffery to suspension.
Thu, Nov 17, 2016 06:12:00 PM

Bears activated WR Marquess Wilson (foot) from the reserve/PUP list.

Wilson's activation comes not a moment too soon, as Alshon Jeffery is beginning his four-game PED suspension in Week 11. Wilson should immediately slide into three-receiver sets, but will probably be a distant No. 3 behind Cameron Meredith and Eddie Royal. Even if Wilson earns a bigger role, he'll have a hard time carving out fantasy value in the Bears' awful offense. A contract-year player, Wilson has had a tough time staying healthy as an NFLer.
