Brandon Marshall quickly became a favorite for fans of the Chicago Bears. We all know how talented the man is, becoming the first Chicago Bears wide receiver since Marty Booker to record 1,000 yards receiving.
Now what some may not know is that Brandon has some personal issues that he battles from day to day. I’m not saying this is the reason why he took leave, but if you didn’t know, Chicago’s pro bowl wide receiver suffers from borderline personality disorder.
Brandon seemed to be frustrated the other day, so it could be a possibility that he took some time off to get things together. Now as a Chicago Bears fan, I don’t mind Brandon Marshall doing this if this was his reason. The man is still human and deserves to have some time to himself if that’s exactly what he needs.
Head coach Marc Trestman commented on Marshall’s request for personal leave after practice saying:
“This was a planned-out miss today for personal reasons. I let him go for personal reasons. But something that has been part of the offseason plan since training camp started.” Trestman told the ChicagoTribune.com
When asked if it was hip related, Trestman did not want to pair up the two things as he went on during the interview:
“I’d rather just leave it to personal reasons out of respect to Brandon. But it’s all good. As I have said, when I let guys go for personal reasons, it’s all good. It’s not reflective of anything other than I gave him time off. He will be back on Sunday.” Trestman added
It looks like both Brandon Marshall and his best friend/starting quarterback Jay Cutler will get the day off on Thursday. Trestman has announced Jordan Palmer as the starting quarterback against Thursday nights home game and final pre-season game against the Cleveland Browns.
Hope all is well with Marshall.
