Alright Chicago Bears fans, take in a deep breath, relax your shoulders now let it out.

Brandon Marshall has finally returned to practice for the Chicago Bears today after missing two days in a row with a foot injury. Now his status for Sunday’s game was never really in danger, but ever since Marshall joined the Bears last season he’s been the go-to target for Jay Cutler.

You have to understand, when Marshall limps off the field, every Bears fan on this planet holds their breath. This team hasn’t had a solid number one wide receiver since Marty Booker.

This Sunday’s show down against the New Orleans Saints will definitely be a difficult game. The way that Drew Brees and this New Orleans defense is playing makes them a heavy favorite considering they’re undefeated right now.

This offensive line is going to have to keep Cutler off of his back so he’s able to connect with Marshall. It doesn’t matter how many defenders are around Marshall, Cutler almost always finds a way to get the ball in his hands.

Chicago needs this victory over the Saints on Sunday to prove they really are a playoff contender.
