There’s something very odd going on with Brandon Marshall and the Bears right now — the wideout is currently away from the team because of “personal reasons” after Chicago gave him four days off. He’s also got concerns with his hip rehabilitation as well.
But Marshall, who tied Wes Welker for second in the NFL in catches in 2012 (behind only Calvin Johnson), said Wednesday on Twitter that he will play in the first game of the 2013 NFL season.
