Bears WR Marquess Wilson to be out until midseason

Chicago Bears wide receiver Marquess Wilson is expected to miss at least half the regular season due to his broken right collarbone.

According to a USA Today report, Wilson broke his collarbone in three seperate places. He is expected to miss 12-14 weeks and should start the season on the injured reserve/designated to return list.

After Wilson went down with his injury the Bears quickly signed free agent Santonio Holmes to a contract. Holmes should have no problem claiming the No. 3 job until Wilson returns.

Holmes had just 43 catches for 738 yards and two touchdowns in 15 games over the past two seasons while dealing with injuries.
