Bears WR Brandon Marshall exits practice with back injury

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall @BMarshall made an early exit during Thursday's practice with a "tight back." The early report from the local media is that Marshall will be limited Friday and likely questionable for Week 3.

Fantasy Analysis:

Losing a big piece of the puzzle would hurt almost everyone on the Bears, but not enough to merit benching one of your key starters like Matt Forte @MattForte22. It's easy to say if targets aren't going to Marshall, they'll go to Alshon Jeffery @TheJefferyShow or Martellus Bennett @MartysaurusRex; however it's Marshall garnering double coverage that opens up the defense for his teammates. Marshall remains a must-start if he plays and start the rest of the Bears lineup as you normally would with or without him.
