Chicago Bears must keep an eye on Titans rookie WR Kendall Wright

Bob Levey

The bright spot in the Titans offense this year has been Kendall Wright, who leads the Titans, and all NFL rookies, with 40 receptions.

The Bears had arguably the league's best rookie receiver in terms of production through the first five weeks of the NFL season. Alshon Jeffery had 14 catches for 184 yards and two touchdowns before a fractured hand kept him out of the Bears last two games.

The rookie receiver possibly replacing him for top honors, Tennessee's Kendall Wright, leads all rookies with 40 catches and is second with 351 yards on the season.

Chicago is at Tennessee in Week 9. To earn a win, the Bears will need to concern themselves with stopping the athletic Wright, who's dangerous both in the short and deep passing games.

The Bears have the league's second-best scoring defense, allowing 14.3 points a game, and their 77.9 rushing yards allowed is tops in the NFL. They are surrendering 238 passing yards a game, largely because teams don't run on them.

It seems like the Titans would be wise to throw as well, and keeping Wright involved will be a part of their game plan.
