As Brandon Marshall continues to recover from offseason hip surgery, he continues to voice his frustration with his recovery.
“It’s one of those things where I’m just trying to get healthy for Week 1,” Marshall told Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times Tuesday after practice at Halas Hall. “So you’ve got to have a game plan coming off surgery, a third hip surgery.”
Marshall had that third hip surgery seven months ago after having an excellent 2012 season for the disappointing Bears. Marshall had 118 catches for 1,508 yards and 11 touchdowns last season, his first with Chicago.
Marshall has also continued to play through the pain, even grabbing four receptions for 38 yards and a touchdown in the Bears’ second preseason game, a 33-28 victory over the San Diego Chargers.
However, the 29-year old Central Florida product appears to be feeling some pressure to appear in these preseason games, telling reporters “some people might think I need to be farther on than where I am, so it’s a little frustrating not being where I want to be right now and maybe being pushed a little bit.”
The Bears will end the preseason against the Cleveland Browns Thursday at 8:00 pm EST. They open the regular season against the Cincinnati Bengals on September 8.
