Brandon Marshall leaves practice with back injury, fantasy owners shouldn't panic yet

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

Brandon Marshall left practice on Thursday with a tight back. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall was removed from practice with an apparent injury. Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune says that Marshall had a "tight back" and the team is hoping he will be fine.

The injury isn't expected to be serious, although Marshall could be limited in practice on Friday and listed on the injury report. Marshall hasn't missed a game since 2010. His season has gotten off to a hot start again, getting 15 catches for 217 yards and two touchdowns through the first two games.

Fantasy impact: Marshall should be in no real danger of missing Sunday's game, but check Friday's injury reports just to be safe. Still the premier offensive weapon on the Bears, Marshall is locked in as a top 10 fantasy receiver. He will be going up against Ike Tayler and the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3, and should be a WR1 in all league formats.
