Brandon Marshall is out of the hospital

Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall is progressing down the road to recovery, but the journey will almost certainly not happen quickly enough for him to return to the field this year.

Marshall was hospitalized with lung and rib injuries after the team’s Thursday night loss to the Cowboys, but coach Marc Trestman said on Monday that Marshall has been released from the hospital. Trestman also indicated that the wideout will miss the final three games of the season and that the team was sorting out how to manage their roster before placing Marshall on injured reserve.

“We’re working through some roster situations and I think that will all work itself out over the next few days,” Trestman said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “That’s part of it. As of now, he’ll be out of Monday night, obviously. [The move to IR] will come to fruition when everything is worked out roster-wise.”

Marquess Wilson will start in place of Marshall, who is signed for three more seasons in Chicago.

  1. Can’t wait for the Lion’s fans reaction when the pretender team gets eliminated from the playoffs, they are bragging about beating the Bucs yesterday! LOL!

    No one is scared of the Lions and their cupcake schedule.

  2. “Marshall was hospitalized with lung and rib injuries after the team’s Thursday night loss to the Cowboys”

    Hmmm… Sounds like a broken rib or two that caused a puncture of the lung….

  3. I’m a Panthers fan, but it seems pretty cheap to take a shot at the Lions’ schedule as the reason for their success. Last time I checked, you play who’s on the schedule, right?

    Sounds like a hater on the front line.

    I have never seen such a relatively inconspicuous hit cause so much damage.

    That word you’re using…I don’t you know what it means. It was a knee to the back/rib cage. I can definitely see it causing damage. It just hit the wrong spot.

  5. Lions fan here, hope Marshall heals soon and glad to hear he’s out of the hospital. As rivals, you always want to play and win when your opponent is at their best. Sorry he won’t be in the game later on.

  6. A story on the Bears best player getting out of the hospital and all rl79111 can ever talk about is the Lions. There’s still 3 weeks before the playoffs and you fault the Lions for an easy schedule. It’s not their fault they have to play Da Bears and 2 other teams with better records than Da Bears LOL

    Players take hits to that area all the time – below the pads above the waist – you very rarely hear of punctured lungs on injury reports.
