(670 The Score) Bears receiver Javon Wims had his two-game suspension upheld after a hearing with appeals officer James Thrash, a league official confirmed Wednesday.

Wims was ejected from the Bears' loss to the Saints on Sunday after throwing multiple punches at New Orleans defensive back C.J. Gardner-Johnson, causing an on-field incident during the third quarter.

Wims, 26, will be eligible to return for the Bears' game against the Packers on Nov. 29. Wims has five receptions for 35 yards and a touchdown this season. Without Wims, the Bears will likely turn to second-year receiver Riley Ridley in his place. Ridley has been inactive for each of the Bears' eight games this season.

Earlier Wednesday morning, the Bears released veteran receiver Ted Ginn Jr.
