NFL Cougar Highlights: Week 16

THE CHICAGO BEARS’ Marquess Wilson nearly doubled his season total of eight receptions on Sunday, catching a career-best seven passes for 66 yards in the Bears’ 20-14 loss to Detroit. And those hashes actually did double--and more--his season total of 56 yards.

The former Washington State receiver—making his second start—left the game with a left knee injury early in fourth quarter after making a 16-yard catch, but told reporters afterward that his knee was “good.” Wilson spent most of the season on injured reserve after breaking collarbone in August.
