Despite four hip surgeries in the past four years, including the latest one this past January, Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall is healthy for training camp and is expected to take on a full workload when the team holds its first on-field workout Friday.
"No limitations, but we're gonna be smart," Marshall said via Michael C. Wright of ESPN Chicago. "I'm going on my eighth year, (have) had a few hip surgeries, nothing major. But at the same time, we start playing games in September. So that's what I'm preparing for. It's important to get out there with your teammates, build that chemistry, learn the offense, get reps. But at the same time, if I'm not healthy, all that doesn't matter. So I'm going to listen to my body, and go as it tells me."
Marshall is a top-5 WR, and this Bears offense will be very interesting to watch under offensive-minded head coach Marc Trestman. Marshall likely won't repeat his 2012 numbers, but the overall offense should be much more productive.
