Marquess Wilson Injury Updates

The Jets have placed WR Quincy Enunwa (neck) on IR, ending his 2017 season. We still don't know much about the neck injury that he dealt with this spring and evidently aggravated on Sunday. Enunwa leaves behind inarguably the worst WR corps in the league. Robby Anderson is the best guess to lead the group in targets -- only because the rest of the group reads: Marquess Wilson, ArDarius Stewart, Chad Hansen, Charone Peake. We'll see who emerges from the ragtag bunch, but Jets WRs won't be a source of much fantasy goodness this season. Enunwa's injury does boost the target projections for RBs Bilal Powell and Matt Forte -- as well as sleeper TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

Update: HC Todd Bowles said Monday afternoon that Enunwa has a bulging disk in his neck and is expected to be out 6-9 months. It's a big blow to a guy who's set to hit free agency next offseason.

Bears WR Marquess Wilson is out for Sunday’s game against the Packers. He was previously dealing with a groin injury but actually broke his foot in practice this week. So he’s likely done for the season. WR Eddie Royal (toe) is also out, leaving Alshon Jeffery, Cameron Meredith and Josh Bellamy as Chicago’s top 3 WRs.

Bears WR Marquess Wilson suffered a groin injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the 49ers. He spent the rest of the afternoon on the sidelines, finishing catch-less on 1 target. We'll look for an update on Wilson's status tomorrow.

The Bears on Saturday placed WR Marquess Wilson on IR with the foot injury that cost him the Week 13 loss to the 49ers. Wilson got hurt in the Week 12 win over the Packers. He finishes his 3rd season with 28 catches for 464 yards and a TD. His 16.6 yards per catch leads the team and more than doubles his 8.2-yard average of 2014. We'll see what kind of role Wilson can expect in 2016, with Alshon Jeffery headed for free agency and 2015 rookie Kevin White due back from injury.

Bears WR Marquess Wilson injured his foot in Wednesday's practice and was held out on Thursday.  His availability for this weekend's game against the 49ers is obviously in doubt.  Wilson's absence would mean even more targets for WR Alshon Jeffery and also make TE Martellus Bennett a safer fantasy play.

Bears WR Marquess Wilson left Saturday’s game with a hamstring injury. Wilson said afterwords that he’s “fine,” while HC John Fox believes the injury isn’t “overly serious.” The 3rd-year WR might miss some practice time, but it sounds like he’ll have a shot at suiting up for Chicago’s 3rd preseason game at Cincinnati. Wilson’s health is vital for a team that might be without 1st round pick Kevin White for all of 2015.

Bears WR Kevin White will undergo surgery on his troublesome shin, GM Ryan Pace announced on Saturday.  The rookie will have a rod inserted into his tibia to address a stress fracture he suffered in OTAs.  White had been rehabbing the injury but had a setback this week, per ESPN's Josina Anderson.  He'll be placed on the PUP list, which will cost him at least the first 6 games of the regular season.  And there's reportedly a chance that White doesn't play at all this year.  He's not worth rostering in redraft leagues.  The big fantasy winner here is WR Eddie Royal, who's had a strong offseason and is now the favorite for #2 WR duties.  WR Marquess Wilson will also see more playing time, but we'll need to see more from him before considering him a viable fantasy option.

Bears WR Kevin White (shin) has been placed on the active/PUP list to begin training camp.  He suffered the injury late in OTAs and has been off his feet for the past month, GM Ryan Pace said.  There's no timetable for White's return to the field.  It's not an ideal scenario for a somewhat-raw rookie WR who's expected to play a significant role this season.  White's absence opens the door for WRs Eddie Royal and Marquess Wilson to earn more playing time.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Bears WR Brandon Marshall's season is "in doubt" with the injuries he suffered in Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys.  Per Rapoport, Marshall has fractured ribs and is also having his spleen examined.  Marshall owners need to prepare to be without him for the rest of the fantasy season.  His absence will move 2nd-year WR Marquess Wilson into the starting lineup.  The 6’3, 194-pounder is worth adding if you're desperate for WR help down the stretch.  Marshall's loss is obviously a big one for QB Jay Cutler.

Bears WR Brandon Marshall took a knee to the back in the 2nd quarter of Thursday night's game against the Cowboys.  He's been diagnosed with a rib injury and was taken to the hospital.  Marshall's absence will open up an opportunity for intriguing 2nd-year prospect Marquess Wilson. 

Bears WR Marquess Wilson (collarbone) has been activated from the short-term IR and is expected to make his 2014 debut against the Vikings on Sunday.  The athletic 6'4, 184-pounder is an intriguing dynasty prospect but will need a Brandon Marshall or Alshon Jeffery injury to have a chance at fantasy value this season.

Bears WR Marquess Wilson fractured his collarbone in Monday's practice.  There's no timetable for his return, but that's usually a 2-month injury.  Wilson is unlikely to be ready for Week 1.  "It's extremely disappointing," HC Marc Trestman said.  "He was continuing to ascend."  Wilson was looking like a lock for Chicago's #3 WR job and will likely take over that spot once healthy.  WR Josh Morgan is now the favorite to open the season as the #3, but he's not a fantasy option.

Former NFL safety Matt Bowen noted "very positive" progress from Bears WR Marquess Wilson in training camp.  "He has improved his release points at the line of scrimmage along with his footwork at the top of the route stem when coming back downhill to the football," Bowen writes.  The 6'4 Wilson is the favorite for Chicago's #3 WR job this season.  That spot will leave him short of reliable fantasy value, but an injury to either Brandon Marshall or Alshon Jeffery would change that.  Wilson is worth rostering in draftmasters setups and is a recommended stash in dynasty leagues.
