Javon Wims: Produces in season finale

Wims caught four passes for 32 yards in Chicago's Week 17 win over the Vikings, and his output represented his first receptions in his NFL career.

Analysis: Wims had a strong preseason, but ultimately alternated between being the fifth and sixth receiver on the team, and as a result, he rarely saw time on the field. He'll be going into the second year of his rookie deal, and with Joshua Bellamy and Kevin White set to become unrestricted free agents, Wims could open the season as the No. 4 wide receiver, potentially moving him closer to seeing regular playing time.

Javon Wims: Not listed on injury report

Wims (knee) was not on Monday's estimated injury report, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Wims missed Sunday's game against the Vikings with a knee issue, but it seems he has recovered from the injury. The rookie wideout has only appeared in three games this season and has yet to catch a pass, so his health will likely not affect Chicago's offensive game plan going forward.

Javon Wims: Inactive again

Wims (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Analysis: Wims will remain sidelined for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Vikings despite managing to fully participate in Friday's practice. The rookie seventh-round pick has yet to record a reception this season, and his absence is unlikely to have a notable impact on Chicago's offense.

Javon Wims: Listed as questionable for Week 11

Wims (knee) carries the questionable tag for Sunday's matchup against the Vikings, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Analysis: Wims was added to the injury report in the middle of the week after logging a limited practice Thursday. The Georgia product was able to practice in full Friday, however. If Wims is able to play Sunday, his role will likely be limited -- Wims logged just eight offensive snaps in his last three games.

Javon Wims: Inactive Sunday

Wims (coach's decision) is listed as inactive for Sunday's contest against the Lions, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Analysis: Wims will be a healthy scratch after earning just six offensive snaps during the Bears' Week 9 blowout win over the Bills. Chicago will deploy four active receivers against the Lions with Kevin White (coach's decision) also sidelined.

Javon Wims: Inactive Sunday

Wims (coach's decision) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Analysis: Wims was active Week 4 against the Buccaneers when he logged a target on his lone offensive snap, but he won't suit up Sunday with the Bears' receiving corps in good health.

Javon Wims: Leads team in receiving versus Chiefs

Wims caught four of five targets for 114 yards and a touchdown during Saturday's 27-20 preseason win over the Chiefs.

Analysis: Wims starred on a touchdown drive in the second quarter, hauling in a 54-yard reception before catching a seven-yard touchdown pass to cap it off. He wound up leading the team in targets, catches and yards on the day, making his 89-yard performance in the preseason opener look less like a fluke. Wims has dealt with injuries over the last couple of weeks, but when healthy he's looked like a viable weapon for a team lacking playmakers on the outside. He should receive some playing time in the final preseason contest next week, but it would seem he's already well on his way to claiming a roster spot.

Javon Wims: Back at practice Sunday

Wims (quadriceps) returned to practice Sunday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Analysis: Wims injured his right quad at Saturday's practice, but the injury must not be too serious as the rookie receiver is back after only one day. Wims has impressed so far this preseason, racking up nine catches for 95 yards in two games.

Javon Wims: Suffers quad injury

Wims sustained a right quadriceps injury at practice Saturday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Analysis: Wims has been a nice surprise as a seventh-round pick out of Georgia. He produced well in the Hall of Fame Game loss to the Ravens and has nine catches for 95 yards in two preseason games. At 6-foot-4, 215 pounds, Wims has the size to compete with NFL cornerbacks.
