Wilson is expected to make his season debut versus the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
“We saw [the potential] from Wilson in the spring [offseason program], Bears head coach Marc Trestman said. “He was ascending. He was learning the offense. He was involved in making plays for us out there. We were excited about it. [Wilson] being up now [on the active roster] gives us optimism that he’ll be able to help us.”
Wilson caught only two passes in 10 games last year as a rookie seventh-round pick.
Wide receiver Brandon Marshall (ankle), tight end Martellus Bennett (ribs), cornerback Tim Jennings (knee), defensive end Cornelius Washington (illness) and cornerback Terrance Mitchell (illness) appear as probable on the final injury report.
