Brandon Marshall injury update news reveals he will miss the final Chicago Bears preseason game. The Marshall injury still has to do with his recovery from offseason hip surgery, but that likely isn't why he is missing the game against the Cleveland Browns. According to a report from ESPN on Wednesday (August 28), an absence from practice as well as the final preseason game was already planned in advance with the team.
This is going to serve as good news for fantasy football owners banking on a strong performance from Marshall, especially with how early he is being selected in drafts this year. A Twitter post from the star receiver also stated that he would be ready to play in the Week One game against the Cincinnati Bengals, so there doesn't appear to be any reason to doubt his availability.
It was clear earlier in the week that Marshall was struggling and frustrated about a slow recovery from his surgery, which would seem to indicate that he might start the season off slowly. It is guaranteed, though, that Bears quarterback Jay Cutler will be targeting him early and often, so the opportunity will be there to put up some huge numbers in the 2013 NFL season.
Chicago Bears fans and fantasy football owners should consider this Brandon Marshall injury update to be a hint at early struggles, but nothing more than that. Every sign points to him playing in Week One and the team will need a good game from him to play well against the Bengals.
