Bears' Marshall Feeling Good Ahead of SeasonLAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - Chicago Bears star Brandon Marshall says his surgically repaired hip is structurally sound heading into the season opener this week.
The Bears meet the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Pro Bowl receiver says he's in good shape after missing the preseason finale. He had an excused absence for that game against Cleveland and was examined over the weekend.
He was back with the Bears on Monday.
Marshall says the joint is "in amazing shape" after having his third hip surgery in four years. The arthroscopic procedure followed a season in which Marshall set franchise records for catches and yards receiving.
