Seven months after hip surgery and 11 days before the start of the regular season, Bears wideout Brandon Marshall still isn’t feeling comfortable.
“It’s one of those things where I’m just trying to get healthy for Week 1,” he said Tuesday after practice at Halas Hall. “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 said “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.”
HC Marc Trestman said Marshall has good days and “days that haven’t gone so well for him” with his hip, but he hasn't missed a lot of time. Marshall is still among that "top-6" WR class this year, but if you're concerned, maybe bump him down to the bottom of the top-6 or the top of the next tier.
