Brandon Marshall WR CHI 4 Days2 Comments
Marshall had six catches on a team-high 10 targets for 48 yards Sunday against the Dolphins.
Marshall appears fully over the ankle injury that limited him for a number of weeks, as he's been targeted 19 times over the last two games, though he hasn't scored a touchdown in that span. Things won't get any easier, as the Bears travel to New England in Week 8 to face a Patriots defense allowing the second-fewest passing yards per game this season.

Marshall had six receptions on nine targets for 113 yards in Sunday's win at Atlanta.
While Marshall didn't reach the end zone, it was his most productive yardage game of the season. He did take a backseat to Alshon Jeffery in the second half, as Jeffrey had nearly 100 yards over the final 30 minutes. In any event, it was an encouraging performance from Marshall, who has been dealing with an ankle issue for weeks now.

Marshall said Thursday that the ankle sprain suffered in Week 4 was considered a four-game injury, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Marshall later mentioned that he underwent special treatment after a Monday night win against the Jets, which actually correlates with Week 3. If the prognosis was indeed laid before him after that contest, he could be hindered by the ankle for two additional outings. Fortunately, he didn't land on the injury report this week, but owners should keep in mind that Marshall remains less than 100 percent at the moment.

Marshall (ankle) had three catches on five targets for 44 yards Sunday against the Panthers.
Marshall practiced fully all week as he works through an ankle injury, but he's been fairly unproductive since a three-touchdown performance in Week 2 at San Francisco. Over the last three weeks, Marshall has caught six passes on 17 targets for 69 yards and a touchdown, so while he is getting a decent number of balls thrown his way, the volume is still down from earlier this season. Up next is a Week 6 matchup against a Falcons defense that has struggled to stop opposing passing games this season, though it's Marshall's ankle that is slowing him lately more than defensive game plans.

Marshall (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against Carolina, ESPN's Michael C. Wright reports.
In contrast to the last three weeks, Marshall heads into this weekend with a full week of practice, giving reason to suspect he's healthier than he's been at any point since Week 1. The Panthers aren't a favorable matchup on paper, but the vast majority of Marshall's owners probably want him active since his ankle is improving.

Marshall (ankle) practiced fully Wednesday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The session marks Marshall's first unhindered practice since aggravating his right ankle injury in last Monday's win at the Jets. Continue to watch his status closely as the week unfolds, but his availability should be confirmed once the final injury report of the week is released.

Marshall (ankle) had two catches on six targets for 19 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Packers.
Marshall continues to be bothered by the ankle injury that he suffered in the season-opener, but that didn't stop him from scoring his fifth touchdown in four games. However, it seems his snaps are being limited, and while it's good that he's on the field near the end zone (his touchdown came on a six-yard pass from Jay Cutler), it's not enough for his yardage numbers, as he's recorded just 25 receiving yards in the last two games combined.

Marshall (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers, Michael C. Wright of ESPNChicago.com reports.
Marshall entered Sunday's contest listed as questionable after failing to practice all week, but he may have been held out as a measure to afford him adequate recovery time from the balky ankle that's been bothering him since Week 1. Though the Marshall has been able to remain a useful fantasy commodity by scoring four touchdowns in his first three games, his yards per catch have fallen from 12.9 last season to 8.9 so far in 2014, suggesting the injury is compromising his ability to separate from defensive backs on deeper routes. If Marshall fails to find paydirt Sunday, it might be difficult for him to make up for it with volume.

Marshall (ankle) is expected to play Sunday against the Packers, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
We'll confirm Marshall's Week 4 status as Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff approaches, but it looks like Marshall will continue to tough it out through his ankle injury Sunday despite not practicing this week.
