Marshall left Thursday's game against the Cowboys in the second quarter with a rib injury, and he is questionable to return to the contest, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Marshall got off to a fast start, catching three balls for 61 yards by the six-minute mark of the second quarter. The third of those receptions converted a 4th-and-7, but Marshall took a hard shot to the torso on the play. He was down on the field for a couple of minutes, and then hobbled off to the locker room. If Marshall is unable to return, Marquess Wilson and Josh Morgan will likely take on expanded roles in the offense, with Wilson the best bet to get snaps in two-wide formations.

Marshall (ankle) made six catches among 11 targets on his way to 42 yards in Thursday's loss at Detroit.

Marshall's YPC has decreased in four consecutive games, from 14.0 in Week 10 to 7.0 on Thursday. Week 10 doubles as the game in which he injured his ankle, and while his production didn't fall off in the first two contests -- 15 combined receptions for 202 yards and three touchdowns -- Marshall managed just nine catches for 72 yards without passing the goal line over the past two tilts. No matter, the veteran wideout has displayed an ability to bounce back, which he'll attempt to accomplish next Thursday against a Cowboys defense that had yielded 13.0 YPC and seven touchdowns to wide receivers entering Week 13.

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.

We'll track Marshall's status in the coming days, but there's nothing at thus stage to suggest that his availability for Thursday's game is in any danger.

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.

For a second week in a row, Marshall concluded the week of practice with two limited showings. Nonetheless, a prime matchup awaits versus a Tampa Bay defense that has allowed 13.7 YPC and 15 total scores to wide receivers in 10 games this season.

Despite being limited in practice again Friday, Marshall (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Marshall's ankle did not seem to hold him back at all against the Vikings last week, and he is poised for another strong game Sunday against a vulnerable Tampa Bay secondary.

Marshall (ankle) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Thus, there was little worry regarding Marshall's missed practice Wednesday. He'll aim to achieve enough health to take advantage of an exploitable matchup Sunday against the Buccaneers, who have given up 14 receiving touchdowns to wide receivers in 10 outings this season.
