Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall said the trade that sent him to the Bears was "career saving" for him.
Huddle Up: Apart from his continued, mammoth on-field production, Marshall seemingly has taken some noticeable strides off the field, settling down and ridding himself of the unwanted headlines that cropped up regularly during his days in Denver and Miami.

The Chicago Bears signed WR Brandon Marshall to a new three-year, $40 million contract extension Monday, May 19. Marshall's new deal includes $23 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: After wearing out welcomes in Denver and Miami, Marshall seems to have found a home in Chicago. The new contract suggests Jay Cutler will be tossing to the twin towers of Marshall and Alshon Jeffrey for the foreseeable future.

Chicago Bears WRs Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall became the first set of receivers to gain 1,000 yards apiece in a season for the team since 1995 when WRs Curtis Conway and Jeff Graham accomplished the feat.
Huddle Up: Marshall and Jeffery were at it again Monday night, combining for 11 catches, 184 yards, a TD and a 2-point conversion, and they make whoever is starting at QB in the Windy City a strong fantasy starting option.

Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery said the wrist injury WR Brandon Marshall (wrist) suffered Week 7 is not considered serious.
Huddle Up: Great news for Marshall owners. Hopefully this means he doesn't miss any time.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (wrist) injured his wrist in Week 7 during a helmet-to-helmet collision with Washington Redskins FS Brandon Meriweather.
Huddle Up: Keep an eye on his wrist this week. At this point we don't know if he will miss any time, but this could mean an absence in the coming weeks.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (undisclosed) was having X-rays taken after the Week 7 game for an undisclosed injury.
Huddle Up: Hopefully this is nothing, but the last time a receiver went in for a mysterious x-ray after the game, Julio Jones was ruled out for the season the next day.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall caught 9 passes for 87 yards and 2 TDs on Thursday, Oct. 10 in a 27-21 win over the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: Thursday night's game was a welcome development for Marshall's fantasy owners with the WR having recorded 16 catches for 161 yards and a TD over the past 3 games combined. Marshall had a team-high 11 targets, while fellow WR Alshon Jeffrey had 5 -- and only 1 catch for 27 yards following his huge 10-catch, 218-yard outburst in Week 5.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (foot) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Huddle Up: Marshall's injury isn't anything to worry about and he's expected to start against the Saints. Fantasy owners shouldn't start him with confidence this week.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (back) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 20, and is probable for Week 3.
Huddle Up: As always, count on starting Marshall, who is currently tied for 6th in the league with 15 receptions so far this season.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (hip) said his surgically repaired hip is structurally sound. "I'm always concerned about my body," Marshall said. "It doesn't matter if it's a little scratch; I'm always concerned. So coming off my third hip surgery, structurally, everything is good. The joint is in amazing shape. So that's exciting."
Huddle Up: Hopefully, Marshall can continue to hold up as one of the game's elite wide receivers, coming the board in drafts at the end of the second round, on average.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall tweeted that he would be ready for Week 1.
Huddle Up: Marshall had said earlier in the week he wasn't happy with his recovery from offseason hip surgery, and Marc Trestman gave Marshall an extra day off heading into a long weekend for the Bears. But if he says he's good to go, you have to take his word on it.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (hip) met with doctors Wednesday, Aug. 28, for a scheduled follow-up exam on his surgically repaired hip.
Huddle Up: The Bears said Marshall was taking four days off for "personal reasons" but it turns out there's more to it. Marshall complained on Wednesday that his hip isn't where he wants it to be at this point, so it's a little alarming that he's going to see a doctor less than two weeks from opening day. Hopefully it's just a bump in the road for the stud receivers but Marshall isn't happy right now, which can become a headache for a lot of people, including fantasy owners.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (hip) said Tuesday, Aug. 27, that he is still isn't feeling comfortable seven months after hip surgery. 'It's one of those things where I'm just trying to get healthy for Week 1,' Marshall said. '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.'
Huddle Up: You'd never be able to tell by glancing at Marshall's NFL resume -- he's missed only 5 games in 7 seasons and has topped 100 catches in 4 of those years -- but it starts to get scary when you start tallying up multiple hip surgeries for anyone, let alone a pro athlete and a physical WR at that. Factor this risk into the equation when given a choice of Marshall or another top-10 WR on draft day.

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall (hip) expects to have a full workload during training camp, which begins Friday, July 26. WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring), who missed organized team activities in June with a pulled hamstring, is also expected to be fully healthy. 'No limitations,' Marshall said, 'but we're gonna be smart. I'm going on my eighth year, (have) had a few hip surgeries, nothing major. But at the same time, we start playing games in September. So that's what I'm preparing for. It's important to get out there with your teammates, build that chemistry, learn the offense, get reps. But at the same time, if I'm not healthy, all that doesn't matter. So I'm going to listen to my body, and go as it tells me.'
Huddle Up: With at least 81 catches, including a career-high 118 this past year, in each of the past 6 seasons and his physical, after-the- catch running style, Marshall endures more than your average WR wear and tear, but to his credit, he's only missed 5 games in 7 seasons. All the mileage, however, may start catching up with him.
