Bears Injury Update: Brandon Marshall's season in doubt

By on 12/05/2014 01:00:00 PM

The Chicago Bears lost to the Dallas Cowboys last night and to make matters worse, they might have lost star wide receiver Brandon Marshall for the season as well.

During the second quarter of last night's game, Marshall was hit low by Cowboys' safety Barry Church, with Church's knee catching Marshall in the lower back. Marshall left the game after the hit and was taken to the locker room to be examined, before then heading to the hospital in an ambulance.

According to Ian Rapoport of, it is believed that Marshall suffered fractured ribs, as well as possible damage to his spleen.

With only three games left in the season and no hopes of making the playoffs, there is no sense in trying to rush Marshall back, and the Bears will likely be cautious with him, possibly shutting him down for the remainder of the year.

If Marshall ends up missing time - which is likely to happen - look for rookie Marquess Wilson to take over as the second wide receiver alongside Alshon Jeffery. Fantasy players should plan on using a backup in Marshall's place for at least week 15.
