Brandon Marshall: “Everything is good” with hip structurally

Chicago Bears' Marshall breaks away from a tackle by San Diego Chargers' Weddle during their pre-season NFL football game in Chicago Reuters

Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall made some waves last week when he said that he was frustrated by the state of his recovery from hip surgery and by the fact that he was “being pushed a little bit” to practice and play in the preseason.

Marshall then took a four-day excused absence from the team that extend through the weekend. Marshall returned to the team on Monday and told reporters that he had a checkup on his hip that seems to have lessened some of the negative feelings he expressed last week.

“I’m always concerned about my body. It doesn’t matter if it’s a little scratch, I’m always concerned,” Marshall said, via Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. “So coming off my third hip surgery, structurally, everything is good. The joint is in amazing shape. So that’s exciting.”

Marshall said there may still be moments of frustration with the hip in the future, but overall painted a much brighter picture than he painted during his last visit with the media. General Manager Phil Emery said the same, telling the media that he thought Marshall looked even better than he did last year.

Given Marshall’s production in 2012 — 118 catches, 1,508 yards and 11 touchdowns — that should be a good thing for the Bears offense as they try to make the playoffs in Marc Trestman’s first year as head coach.

    Marshall is a beast, he’s the only WR Seattle consistently couldn’t stop last season.

    Marshall could have 25% less productivity from last season and still be a Pro Bowler. But you haters can feel free to hate all you want if it helps you feel better.

    Marshall is healthy
    The Bears are back
    It shouldn’t be very hard
    To beat the Pack

    But is it as structurally sound as Shakira’s hip?

    Now that he’s heavily medicated, we can hope that Brandon has better control over his emotional outbursts.

    The only receiver Seattle couldn’t stop? How about Titus Young? LOL

  10. aaroncurryisbust says: Sep 2, 2013 7:27 PM

    Consistently stop, learn to read. Young fluking into a deep TD doesn’t mean he thoroughly dominated like Marshalk did.

    doesn’t matter how healthy he is this weekend – bengals will thrash bears

  12. bengalguy says: Sep 2, 2013 7:59 PM

    The Bengals are gonna pound the Bears opening week!

  13. motionaway says: Sep 2, 2013 8:01 PM

    Marshall carrier the Bears last year and he paid a price. Will see Sunday if Cutler can “… spread the ball around”.

  14. ososrule says: Sep 2, 2013 9:58 PM

    Marshall will not reproduce, but will be a threat……… watch for Forte.

  15. ososrule says: Sep 2, 2013 9:59 PM

    *I mean repeat……sorry way to much booze tonight!

  16. dino2997 says: Sep 2, 2013 11:12 PM

    I’ll be darned. The Bengals have fans?!?

  17. coconut127 says: Sep 3, 2013 12:24 AM

    Bears 23….Bengals 21

  18. steelers4385 says: Sep 3, 2013 12:25 AM

    Bears suck. Cutler overrated. O-line is just absolutley terrible, and their defense has many weak spots. That being said..i like marshall. Guy is a animal. And its good to see him have a positive turn around. And forte is beast also. Just wastes of talent playing for them

    Think half those catches came against my Vikes last year. Even if hes not 100% by week 2, Marshall will have a bigger game against MN than Megatron does week 1. Although hopefully neither will be a big enough impact to win. First Vikings win at Soldier Field since 2007 in two weeks.

  20. arlingtonsynn says: Sep 3, 2013 12:43 AM

    Alshon Jeffrey will be the interesting one to watch this year. If Cutler uses him (and he stops with the offensive PI), Chicago should have a better offense than last year.

    It probably won’t matter in the end though.

  21. midwayroar54 says: Sep 3, 2013 12:49 AM

    hahahah silly Bengal fans I hope our rookie RT Kyle Long pancakes Geno!! Yea he might get his but I hear yalls Pro Bowl LT Andrew Whitworth possibly might not play Week 1……mmmmm Peppers is jus salivating at the thought, and so am I…WATCH YOUR BACK ANDY!!! BEAR DOWN!!

  22. midwayroar54 says: Sep 3, 2013 12:51 AM

    definitely meant “RG” with Kyle Long, either way BEAR DOWN FOREVER!!!

    Marshall quickly added “If it doesn’t work out this season, it’s not my fault, I have BPD.”

    Need a tissue, BABY?

  24. bla bla bla says: Sep 3, 2013 7:59 AM

    Cutler is good.

    Marshall is very good.

    Together they’re great.

    But the Packer still win the North… as usual.

  25. chi01town says: Sep 4, 2013 8:47 AM

    the talk is about to stop and the best team in the North will have to
    stand up. Last season is GONE packers fans. the packers DONT GET NO CREDIT FOR THAT.
