With WR Brandon Marshall out of the mix for what sources say will be the remainder of the season, the Bears likely will use second-year receiver Marquess Wilson in his place while moving Josh Morgan into the slot receiver's role.
As we said last week, Wilson is the pickup here, but he only caught two passes for 19 yards on five targets with Marshall knocked out of the game. He should be better prepared for a starting role with a week of preparation, but would be difficult to trust in the fantasy playoffs.

Wilson resumed practicing last week for the first time since breaking his collarbone Aug. 4 in training camp. He was placed on injured reserve with the designation to return.
“We saw it [in training camp] and we saw it in the spring,” said coach Marc Trestman. “He was ascending, was learning the offense, was involved in making plays out there for us, and we were excited about it. Him being up now, we’re optimistic that he’ll be in position to help us.”

WR Eric Decker (hamstring)
LB Nick Bellore (hip), S Josh Bush (quadricep), G Willie Colon (calf), LB Quinton Coples (elbow), LB A.J. Edds (hamstring), RB Chris Johnson (ankle), C Nick Mangold (shoulder)
We're expecting Marshall and Jeffery to play since they played last week and were at least limited on Saturday. Decker was also limited on Saturday, and is expected (per HC Rex Ryan) to play. Consider him at high risk to reaggravate the injury, though he has a great matchup against a shaky Bears defense.

In a bit of a surprise, both WRs Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) are active for the Bears. Both come with significant risk as they were questionable and far from a lock to play tonight. Marshall appears to be the healthier of the two. Rankings have been updated to reflect their status.
