Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall said that “everything is good” structurally with his injured hip and he will be fine for the team's opener against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Last week, Marshall said he was frustrated by the progress of hip after offseason surgery.

“I’m always concerned about my body. It doesn’t matter if it’s a little scratch, I’m always concerned,” Marshall said the Chicago Tribune. “So coming off my third hip surgery, structurally, everything is good. The joint is in amazing shape. So that’s exciting.”

Marshall had 118 catches, for 1,508 yards and 11 touchdowns last season.

“He’s going to get mad at me for saying this because I have been telling him this all summer: I see a guy that is better than he was last year,” Bears general manager Phil Emery said. “I see a guy that is more dynamic. I see a guy better in and out of his breaks. I see a stronger player. I think he made the comments that he was at 4.5 body fat percentage. He looks it. When you stand up behind Brandon Marshall, you realize how big that man is at the position that he plays. He’s at an elite level for his position in terms of size, dynamic ability, production. I don’t see any back off."
