Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall returned to practice with the team on Monday after a follow-up exam on his surgically repaired hip held him out of the team's preseason finale against the Cleveland Brownsaccording to Michael C. Wright of ESPN Chicago.

Although Marshall has previously expressed frustration with his recovery from the injury, Bears general manager Phil Emery doesn't see it as a concern and expects the four-time Pro Bowl receiver to be healthy and ready for the team's season opening game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

"I'm always concerned about my body," Marshall told reporters after practice on Monday. "It doesn't matter if it's a little scratch, I'm always concerned. So coming off my third surgery, structurally, everything is good. After a few surgeries, I think that's protocol for checkups."

In his first season with the Bears, Marshall had a career year, accumulating 118 receptions, 1,508 yards and 11 touchdowns.
