Bears WR Marquess Wilson suffers another foot injury

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The Chicago Bears announced on Thursday that wide receiver Marquess Wilson suffered another foot injury, putting his availability in doubt for the remainder of the season.

John Fox didn't provide any specifics about Wilson’s latest setback, but the Bears coach did admit Wilson is dealing with “kind of a little bit the same issue [as earlier in the year] and the doctors] are evaluating that.”

Wilson did not practice on Thursday.

A former seventh-round pick, Wilson fractured his left foot during mandatory minicamp in June and underwent surgery. He spent nine weeks on the physically unable to perform list (PUP) before the Bears activated him on Nov. 20 against the New York Giants.

Wilson caught eight passes for 125 yards and one touchdown the next week versus Tennessee but dropped a perfectly thrown ball in the end zone. The 6-foot-4 wideout played sparingly in the San Francisco game because of a pulled groin muscle and was inactive for last week’s loss in Detroit.

Wilson broke the same foot in 2015 and landed on injured reserve for the final five games of that season. He sat out the first nine games of 2014 after he broke his clavicle diving for a deep ball at training camp.

Since 2013, Wilson has appeared in only 31 regular-season contests, catching 56 career passes for 777 yards and three touchdowns.

Wilson’s rookie contract expires after the season.

In other injury news, receiver Eddie Royal (toe) and nose tackle Eddie Goldman (ankle) sat out practice on Thursday ahead of Sunday’s game against Green Bay.
