Bears WR Brandon Marshall left game with ankle injury
The injury came with the Bears (3-6) down 55-7. After a nine-yard reception, Marshall was tackled by his ankle by Green Bay safety Sean Richardson. The ninth-year receiver landed awkwardly. After he left the field, he was ruled out for the remainder of the game.
Prior to exiting the game, Marshall caught eight passes for 112 yards and one touchdown. His longest was a 45-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter.
The ankle has given Marshall problems throughout this season. He finished Week 3's win on the road against the New York Jets with just one catch for six yards.
In 16 games last year, he tallied 1,295 yards and 12 touchdowns on 100 catches. Through nine games this season, he has 42 receptions for 496 yards and six touchdowns.
Regarding the Bears' struggles last night and this season, Marshall was candid after the game.
"We're just not very good," said Marshall. "That's the confusing part. The frustrating part is that we thought we had a team, a contender. This is the team we have. We just have to accept it and move forward."
Chicago hosts the Vikings on Nov. 16 at 1 pm EST.
