NFL Cougar Highlights: Week 10

TEN WEEKS INTO the season and it’s safe to say the 2015 campaign has not been the breakout year many had forecast for Chicago receiver Marquess Wilson.

Despite more opportunities earlier in the season due to injuries with key Bear receiving personnel, Wilson has thus far failed to become an integral part of the Chicago aerial attack. Since a pair of six game catches in early October, the former Cougar has caught just 5 passes on 13 targets the past 4 games.

Sunday was an especially unproductive day for Wilson, now in his third professional season. He caught just one pass for 1 yard on 3 targets in the Bears’ 37-13 win against St. Louis.

Here’s how the rest of the NFL Cougs performed in week 10.

Husain Abdullah, FS, Kansas City, 7th season: Recorded two solo tackles and a quarterback hit in the Chiefs’ 29-13 defeat of Denver.

Deone Bucannon, LB, Arizona, 2nd season: Tallied seven tackles (4 solo)—including a sack—and 1 quarterback hit in the Cardinals’ 39-32 win against Seattle.
