Bears WR Marquess Wilson Suffers Broken Foot, Could Open Season On PUP List

Bears HC John Fox told reporters on Wednesday that WR Marquess Wilson re-fracturd his left foot on Tuesday and will require surgery, per Zach Zaidman.

  • Jeff Dickerson adds that it’s Wilson could open the season the Bears’ PUP list.

Should Chicago end up placing Wilson on the PUP list at the start of the regular season, it would cost him the first six weeks.

Wilson has shown some promise, but injuries have really prevented him from carving out a solid role in the team’s offense. Before this latest injury, it appeared as though he was competing for the team’s No. 4 receiver job behind Alshon Jeffery, Kevin White and Eddie Royal.

Wilson, 23, is a former seventh-round pick of the Bears back in 2013. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $2.208 million rookie contract and stands to make a base salary of $675,000 for the 2016 season.

In 2015, Wilson appeared in 11 games for the Bears and recorded 28 receptions for 464 yards receiving and one touchdown. However, his season came to an end after he suffered a foot injury that led to him being placed on season-ending injured reserve.
