Bears' Brandon Marshall leaves with ankle injury vs. Jets

Tuesday September 23rd, 2014

Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall left Monday's road game vs. the Jets with a right ankle injury but he returned for the second half.  

The team tweeted before the end of the first half that Marshall's status had been downgraded to "questionable," but he played on the Bears' opening drive of the half.

The 30-year-old five-time Pro Bowler sustained the injury while blocking in the second quarter. He was seen limping off the field under his own power and made his way to the locker room. He had zero catches on three targets before the injury.

The Bears entered the game 1-1, losing their season opener at home vs. the Bills but winning last week on the road against the 49ers. Chicago plays next on Sunday in a matchup with the Packers.
