Draft Scout Brandon Marshall News
09/15/14 - WR Brandon Marshall's three touchdown receptions against the 49ers brought his total as a Bear to 27. Since he joined the Bears in 2012, no NFL wide receiver has as many and only Saints tight end Jimmy Graham has that many.
09/14/14 - WR Brandon Marshall did not practice all week because of an ankle injury, then had three touchdown catches in Sunday's win. Marshall wasn't nearly as effective when he wasn't around the goal line, catching only two other passes for 23 yards.
09/11/14 - WR Brandon Marshall insisted Thursday he'll try to play Sunday at San Francisco and try to practice Friday despite a sprained ankle. He and injured wide receiver Alshon Jeffery haven't practiced this week. Jeffery suffered a pulled hamstring Sunday. Marshall said he's willing to try to play even if it means he could aggravate the injury.
"That's a possibility, but you only get so many opportunities, man," he said. "There's a big goal, and we dropped one last week. If I can help out the team I'm going to be out there. That's part of the game — it's volatile, it's risky.
"Hey, I'm gonna go down swinging. I'll be out there Sunday. That's what I'm saying, but of course I'm not the head decision-maker here. But I'm gonna be out there in my mind, and I'll be OK."
The Bears are actually down three wide receivers because Josh Morgan has a groin injury that had him practicing on a limited basis Wednesday and not at all Thursday. As a result, the only member of the 53-man roster's receiver corps practicing was Santonio Holmes, who also will double as the punt returner after the team cut receiver-returner Micheal Spurlock this week. They were using practice-squad members Josh Bellamy, Greg Herd and Rashad Ross at wide receiver.
Bellamy and Herd were with the team in preseason, and quarterback Jay Cutler had thrown to them extensively as the coaching staff made a point of having him throw not just to first-team players.
"That was a smart move looking back on it, taking a lot of reps with those guys in training camp and even OTAs," Cutler said. "I've got a good comfort level for what Josh Bellamy and Josh Morgan and all those guys can do physically, what they're good at, what routes they like, how they're coming out of cuts.
"So it's a good thing that we did that."
12/30/13 - WR Brandon Marshall's 12 TD catches on the year were a career high and the most by a Bears wide receiver since Curtis Conway had 12 in 1995. Marshall wound up with 100 catches, the fifth time he's done this. No one has ever had more than five 100-catch seasons and only two others (Wes Welker, Andre Johnson) have had five.
12/19/13 - WR Brandon Marshall, who sat out Wednesday with hamstring tightness, returned to practice Thursday on a limited basis and is expected to play Sunday.
