Bears WR Brandon Marshall is back to running following hip surgery


Bears WR Brandon Marshall is back to running following hip surgery

Here's an injury update on a top-five wide receiver. The Bears' Brandon Marshall @BMarshall began running on a field last week as he continues to work his way back from arthroscopic hip surgery, which he underwent on Jan. 15. Players typically need 6-7 weeks to recover from such an operation, but Marshall admitted to the Chicago Sun-Times that he has been taking it slow, because it's the offseason.
"It's about working smarter," Marshall said. "... We don't play games until September. Feeling really good. As long as I'm in top shape then, that's all that matters.
"I'm excited to start this season 100 percent healthy and see how much better I can be."

Fantasy Analysis:

One reason Marshall can be better is the change at the top. Out is the defensive-minded Lovie Smith, and in is the offensive-minded Marc Trestman as head coach. The start of the article sets the scene of Marshall and tight end Martellus Bennett quizzing each other on the team's new offensive playbook and generally having a grand ol' time going through it. Trestman should help the Bears' offense become more productive as a whole. That should rub off on Marshall, who was unstoppable at times in 2012 on his way to a 118-catch, 1,508-yard season. Again, he's a top-five WR.
