After getting a check-up on his hip last week, Brandon Marshall returned to Bears practice Monday and declared himself healthy.
“Coming off my third hip surgery (in January), structurally, everything is good,” he said at Halas Hall. “The joint is in amazing shape. So that’s exciting.”
He later called his hip “in great shape.”
Tuesday, Marshall vented frustrations with his health and his role in Marc Trestman’s new offense. Wednesday, he was excused for team activities for four days, which he later said was for a planned check-up on his hip.
“I’m going to be frustrated,” he said Monday. “That’s just human nature.”
General manager Phil Emery said he thinks Marshall is “better than he was last year.”
He called Marshall’s frustration “just an athlete wanting to be elite.”
