Bears WR Markus Wheaton Could Miss 4-6 Weeks With Groin Tear

Adam Jahns, citing league sources, reports that Bears WR Markus Wheaton could end missing 4-6 weeks with a groin tear.

Wheaton, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Steelers back in 2013. He played out the final year of his rookie contract with the Steelers when he signed a two-year, $11 million deal that included $6 million guaranteed with the Bears this offseason.

Wheaton stands to make base salaries of $3 million and $5 million over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2017, Wheaton has appeared in three games for the Bears but caught just a single pass for nine yards receiving and no touchdowns.
