Bears WR Markus Wheaton out Indefinitely Following Appendectomy Sunday Morning

Bears coach John Fox told reporters after practice that wide receiver Markus Wheaton underwent an appendectomy Sunday morning and remains hospitalized, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN Chicago reports.

“He had some stomach pains last night around 4 a.m., and our training staff did a good job getting him and he had the appendectomy at probably 9 o’clock this morning,” Fox said. “They’ll keep him in the hospital tonight. It’s a scope type of procedure, but they caught it. … It was inflamed, not ruptured, which is a good thing. So he’ll start that recovery process.”

Fox did not offer a timetable on Wheaton’s return to the field.
