Brandon Marshall WR CHI 1 Month5 Comments

Marshall (ankle) is listed as probable for Thursday's game at Detroit, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

On a short week, Marshall has been afforded oodles of rest in order to alleviate stress on his left ankle. He has yet to face the Lions' secondary this season, but in four previous matchups, he fared well, supplying 25 receptions (on 50 targets) for 341 yards and three touchdowns.

The Bears did not practice Tuesday, but Marshall (ankle) remained a limited participant on the team's injury report.

The Bears are giving their players a couple days off this week in advance of Thursday's game against the Lions, which has given Marshall a couple days to rest his sore ankle. The Bears have given no indication that he could sit out Thursday, so it seems likely he will be able to play. However, expect the team to provide another update on his status when they release their final injury report of the week Wednesday afternoon.

Marshall (ankle) was listed as a limited practice participant in the Bears' estimated Monday practice report posted in advance of Thursday's game against the Lions.

Marshall (ankle) had three catches on five targets for 32 yards Sunday against the Buccaneers.

The Bears' passing attack really struggled Sunday, as quarterback Jay Cutler threw for only 130 yards, with tight end Martellus Bennett leading the team in targets (seven) and receiving yards (37). The five targets for Marshall came after he got 10 in four consecutive games, and while he figures to get more looks in Week 13 against the Lions, there's no guarantee for great production, as Detroit ranks in the top-5 against the pass this season.

Marshall (ankle) had seven catches on 10 targets for 90 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Vikings.

Marshall continues to deal with an ankle injury, but it surely hasn't slowed him down much in the past two games, catching 15 passes on 20 targets for 202 yards and three touchdowns. With the number of targets he continues to get, Marshall figures to be another solid fantasy option in Week 12 against a Bucs defense that has allowed more passing touchdowns than all but two teams this season.
