The team called the injury ``minor'' and said he was expected back later in the week, but Wilford was scheduled to have an MRI exam.
``To even think about not having him would be a big hurt to the team,'' teammate Dennis Northcutt said.
Wilford hurt his knee when he got tangled with a defender. He was on the ground for several minutes, then had to be helped to the sideline. He was later carted to the locker room.
A fourth-round pick from Virginia Tech in 2004, Wilford has 96 catches for 1,476 yards and 11 touchdowns. He moved past former first-round picks Matt Jones and Reggie Williams on the depth chart this spring and has maintained a starting spot since.
``Ernest is having a great camp,'' quarterback Byron Leftwich said. ``You understand the type of player Ernest is. Hopefully, we can get some good news and he will be back out there.''
