Marshall was excused from the team for four days to get a checkup on his surgically repaired hip. He underwent surgery in the offseason and was a full participant in most of training camp and preseason, so his absence was only a minor concern. Head coach Marc Trestman approved his absence and planned for it in advance. There is no danger of him missing any regular season time.
Fantasy impact: Cool your jets, twitchy fantasy drafters--Marshall is just fine. He remains Jay Cutler's favorite target and could be in line for even more action in Trestman's pass-happy offense. Marshall is locked in as a top five fantasy receiver and is worth drafting in the middle of the second round. He's in for another year of quality fantasy production.
