Bears receiver Brandon Marshall is frustrated as he recovers from offseason hip surgery, and he says he’s not as ready for the regular season as he would like to be.
“It’s one of those things where I’m just trying to get healthy for Week 1,” Marshall said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “So you’ve got to have a game plan coming off surgery, a third hip surgery. So yeah, I’m not where I want to be right now. It’s a little frustrating. But we’ll see.”
Marshall has been playing during the preseason, but he suggested that he’s feeling pressure to play.
“Some people might think I need to be farther on than where I am, so it’s a little frustrating not being where I want to be right now and maybe being pushed a little bit,” Marshall said.
The Bears are counting on Marshall to be their No. 1 receiver. If he’s not ready to go this season, a lot of people in Chicago will feel frustrated.
