Wheaton has had a tough time staying healthy this year. He underwent surgery to repair the labrum in one of his shoulders in January.
At the start of training camp, Wheaton had an appendectomy and then in mid-August, he broke a finger.
The 26 year old has only managed one catch on nine targets for nine yards in three games this season.
