Brandon Marshall's 2015 base salary of $7.5 million becomes guaranteed on March 12.
The Bears can clear $3.95 million in cap room if they release Marshall before that date, and $7.7 million if they designate him a post-June 1 cut. Marshall recently met with new coach John Fox and GM Ryan Pace, and was "assured nothing" about his future following the meeting. If the Bears do release Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett, and Marquess Wilson's fantasy outlooks would all improve significantly for 2015. Feb 15 - 1:52 PM

Brandon Marshall recently sat down with new coach John Fox and GM Ryan Pace to discuss his future with the Bears, but was "assured nothing."

Most expect Marshall back with Chicago in 2015, but the people closest to the situation (Marshall, Fox, and Pace) haven't come out and assured that the receiver will be back in a Bears uniform. Marshall continues to say that he wants to remain with the team. He's also openly supported the hire of OC Adam Gase.

ESPN Chicago's Michael C. Wright expects Brandon Marshall back with the Bears in 2015.

Wright wrote in late January that "nobody knows" whether Marshall would return, but now expects him back in the Windy City. As Wright notes, new Bears coach John Fox has a history of working with dramatic receivers after coaching Steve Smith Sr. for many years in Carolina. Marshall turns 31 in March.

ESPN Chicago's Michael C. Wright writes that "nobody knows" whether Brandon Marshall will be back with the Bears in 2015.

The Bears signed Marshall to a new four-year, $39 million deal last May, but the regime that handed him that extension is gone. Marshall is still a fine player and worth the money, but there's some question whether he'll be able to coexist with Chicago's new staff. OC Adam Gase was the Broncos' WRs coach when Josh McDaniels banished Marshall from Denver. Marshall also had a 2014 falling out with Jay Cutler. Per the website, the Bears could save $3.95 million in cap space by cutting Marshall this offseason.

Bears placed WR Brandon Marshall on injured reserve with fractured ribs and a collapsed lung, ending his season.

This was an expected move. Marshall, 31 in March, will return to the Bears in 2015 after GM Phil Emery signed him to a new four-year, $39.3 million deal last May. He appears to have been passed by Alshon Jeffery as Chicago's top receiver, but will be a solid bounce-back target as a WR2 in fantasy next year.

Brandon Marshall (ribs, lung) is out of the hospital.

It's unclear when Marshall was discharged. Marshall is dealing with two broken ribs and a collapsed lung. He's expected to land on injured reserve at some point this week. Marquess Wilson will take over opposite Alshon Jeffery for the Bears' final three games. Signed through 2017, Marshall turns 31 in March.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Brandon Marshall indeed has a collapsed lung in addition to his two fractured ribs.

Schefter also confirms Marshall is "out for season." Doctors successfully treated Marshall's collapsed lung, and there should be no long-term ramifications from this injury. Alshon Jeffery will close out the year as a target monster. Martellus Bennett will also see an uptick in rest-of-season targets.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Bears believe Brandon Marshall's (ribs, lung) season is over.

Marquess Wilson should close out the season with starts against the Saints, Lions, and Vikings. Marshall has two fractured ribs and a potentially punctured lung. The Bears signed him to a new four-year, $39.3 million deal in May. Marshall showed signs of decline in his age-30 season, and will turn 31 in March. Wilson and Alshon Jeffery are Chicago's future at the wideout position.

Brandon Marshall has been diagnosed with two fractured ribs and an injured lung, and has already been ruled out for Week 15.

Marquess Wilson is going to start against the Saints. Marshall is still in the hospital, and it sounds like doctors are checking for a puncture in his lung. Fantasy owners can try holding out hope for a Week 16 return, but that seems like an extreme long shot. There is fear Marshall's season is over.
Fri, Dec 5, 2014 02:35:00 PM's Ian Rapoport reports Brandon Marshall may have suffered broken ribs on Thursday, and that his "season is in doubt."

Per Rapsheet, Marshall is also having his spleen "examined." It sounds like the worst-case scenario after Marshall got laid low by a Barry Church hit on Thursday evening. Marshall's status will be updated on Friday.

Updating an earlier item, Brandon Marshall (ribs) was taken to the hospital after being forced from Chicago's Week 14 game against the Cowboys.

Brutal. We could have a Miles Austin (kidney) or Justin Hunter (spleen) type situation on our hands. Marshall was in a ton of pain when he left the field. Any sort of internal injury would likely be a season-ender.

Brandon Marshall was forced from Chicago's Week 14 game against the Cowboys with a rib injury, and is questionable to return.

Finishing off a second-quarter grab, Marshall took Barry Church's knee square to his side. The Cowboys immediately motioned to the sideline for medical help, and Marshall remained down for several minutes before gingerly walking to the sideline under his own power. He then headed to the locker room. We'd guess he's done for the night, but Marshall routinely plays through pain. He had three catches for 61 yards before departing, including an Odell Beckham-ish 42-yard catch down the seam.

Brandon Marshall caught 6-of-11 targets for 42 yards in Chicago's Week 13 loss to the Lions.

It was a disappointing day for Marshall, who appeared to tweak something early, and committed two drops. He was the target on Jay Cutler's first interception. With 75 percent of the season now in the books, Marshall is on pace for just 77/880/11. Both the yards and catches would be his fewest since his rookie year in 2006.

Brandon Marshall (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 13.

Marshall was limited in practice throughout the week. He'll be a borderline WR1 for Thursday's game against the Lions.

Brandon Marshall (ankle) remained limited in Tuesday's practice.

The Bears are just limiting their veteran wideout's reps on a short week. He'll be ready to rock on Thanksgiving in Detroit.
