Wright suffered a back injury in the first half of Sunday's game against the Bears and did not return, ESPN.com reports. He caught three passes on three targets for 23 yards before being knocked out.

Wright finishes the season with 42 catches on 62 targets for 587 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games. He has one more year on his contract, but even if he's brought back, he isn't likely to supplant Greg Jennings or Charles Johnson on the depth chart.

Wright aggravated his back injury in the first half of Sunday's game against the Bears and is doubtful to return.

The Vikings struggled to move the ball in the first half, and Wright's three catches for 23 yards were leading the team when he departed. With no playoff spot to play for, Wright looks like he is done for the day.

Wright (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Wright's back limited him to just one practice during the week, but he'll give it a go Sunday. The Bears have a truly awful pass defense, so if you're looking for a Week 17 dart, Wright isn't a terrible option.

Wright (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against Chicago.

Wright was able to log just one practice this week, and that was a limited showing Friday. If he's unable to go Sunday, it should mean a couple extra targets for Charles Johnson and Greg Jennings.

Wright (back) didn't practice Wednesday, the Vikings' official site reports.

Entering Week 17, Wright has put together his most productive four-game stretch of the season, posting 13 catches (on 16 targets) for 250 yards, three carries for 55 yards, and two touchdown grabs. However, because the severity of his current injury is unknown, his status should be monitored as the week progresses.

Wright had three receptions for 38 yards, including an eight-yard touchdown, in Sunday's loss to Miami. He was targeted three times and also had one carry for 27 yards.

Wright is still getting more targets than Cordarrelle Patterson and gets used on a reverse almost every game, but he's not getting enough touches for viable fantasy value in most formats.

Wright had four receptions for 49 yards on six targets in Sunday's loss to Detroit. He missed time in the fourth quarter due to an ankle injury, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Wright had his ankle stepped on and needed time off. The severity of the injury isn't clear, so check to see if he's able to practice Wednesday.

Wright had four catches on five targets for 123 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 30-24 overtime win over the Jets.

Wright was having a very modest fantasy day before catching a screen pass in overtime and taking it 87 yards for the game-winning touchdown. It was the second time this season that Wright has gone for more than 120 yards, but the touchdown was his first this year and he's failed to reach even 45 yards in 10 contests. Wright is a classic boom-or-bust option, but the booms are far too inconsistent to rely upon in most fantasy leagues.

Wright had two receptions for 40 yards on two targets and had one carry for five yards in Sunday's win over Carolina.

Wright has fallen behind Charles Johnson on the depth chart, but still is the third receiver with Cordarrelle Patterson surprisingly stuck on the bench last week (just three snaps on offense).

Wright (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday versus the Packers.

Wright built up to a full showing by Friday's practice, meaning his hamstring issue is likely less of a concern than last Sunday. No matter, he's an unpalatable fantasy option, as he hasn't scored a touchdown this season, while surpassing 30 yards receiving in merely two of 10 contests.
