Brandon Marshall placed on IR-- Mon Dec 8 3:55 pm --
WR released from hospital Monday; lung, rib injuries
Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall, who was discharged from Northwestern Memorial Hospital on Monday, has been placed on the reserve/injured list. Marshall spent three days in the hospital receiving treatment for a collapsed lung he suffered following a 15-yard reception in the second quarter of the Bears' 41-28 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night. Marshall also fractured two ribs on the play when Cowboys S Brandon Church kneed the receiver in the back.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:With Monday's announcement that Marshall will go on IR, the Bears will turn to Marquess Wilson opposite Alshon Jeffery. Although he didn't produce much after Marshall left the game last Thursday, Wilson is a unique blend of size (6-4) and speed (4.5) that gives the Bears a deep threat it hasn't had with Jeffery hurt for most of the season. He needs to be added in all leagues this week and should already be on all rosters in dynasty formats.
Marshall likely out rest of the season-- Fri Dec 5 7:30 pm --
Two fractured ribs and lung injury
Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall will not play again this season after suffering two fractured ribs and a lung injury during the team's 41-28 loss Thursday night to the Dallas Cowboys, two sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Marshall remained hospitalized Friday receiving treatment.
FF Today's Take:Marshall has already been ruled out for Week 15 and it appears his season is over. Look for Marquess Wilson to move into Marshall's spot on the outside with Josh Morgan filling the slot receiver's role.
