News: Marshall played through an injury and caught five passes for 48 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's win over San Francisco. Impact: He's seen 20 targets in two games, and plenty are coming in the red zone as he's scored four TDs.(STATS, 5:40pm)

News: Marshall (ankle) caught five passes for 48 yards and three touchdowns on eight targets in Sunday's 28-20 win over the 49ers. Impact: Neither Marshall nor Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) looked especially quick, but Marshall used his size and body position to outfox the San Francisco defense in the end zone. As impressive as the performance was at less than 100 percent, it's worth noting that the Bears put up just 216 yards of total offense, struggling mightily until the very end of the second quarter. Had Colin Kaepernick not committed four turnovers, we might be focusing on how Marshall and Jeffery struggled to gain separation while injured, rather than talking about Marshall's three-touchdown night. Still, it was a gritty performance, one that showed how Marshall's game is about far more than physical tools. Marshall and Jeffery seemed to escape without further aggravating their injuries, and they'll have an extra day to get ready ahead of next week's road MNF matchup against the Jets.(RotoWire, )

News: Marshall (ankle) is officially active for Sunday night's game against the 49ers. Impact: As is Alshon Jeffery, and though it's unclear how close to 100 percent the duo will be, they'll both give it a go and thus reward owners who gambled that they would suit up Sunday night, despite some earlier pessimism on that front.(RotoWire, )
Sep 14, 2014
News: Marshall (ankle) will be active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Impact: According to ESPN's Michael Wright, Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) is also expected to play. Fantasy owners of either receiver would still be wise to check back around 90 minutes before the opening kickoff, at which point the Bears' inactives should be available.(RotoWire, )
Sep 14, 2014
News: Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune stated his hunch is that either Marshall (ankle) or Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) figure to suit up for Sunday's night's game against the 49ers. Impact: With Josh Morgan doubtful and unlikely to play, if both Marshall and Jeffery were to sit Sunday, the team would have just three wideouts on hand. While Biggs' hunch offers a more optimistic stance than the one earlier put forth by ESPN's Adam Schefter, it does not provide a guess with regard to which wideout has the better chance of suiting up. The situation thus remains tricky in advance of Sunday's 8:30 ET kickoff, with Santonio Holmes the candidate to see added snaps, if one or both of his teammates are unable to play.(RotoWire, )
Sep 14, 2014
News: As Sunday night's game against the 49ers approaches, ESPN's Adam Schefter suggests that there are major questions with regard to the status of both Marshall (ankle) and Alshon Jeffery (hamstring). Impact: Presumably, with that in mind, the Bears promoted fellow wideouts Josh Bellamy and Chris Williams from their practice squad, with Santonio Holmes next in line for snaps should one, or both of the Bears' top wideouts not suit up Sunday night. Both Marshall and Jeffery thus appear to loom as game-time decisions, a notion supported by Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. This is a tricky scenario for fantasy owners, given the team's late kickoff Sunday.(RotoWire, )

News: Marshall has been activated for Sunday night's contest against the 49ers. Impact: Marshall had been questionable with an injured ankle. Coach Marc Trestman said he has no overall policy about using a player who hasn't been able to practice during the week, calling it a "player to player decision." (STATS, 6:14pm)
Fri. Sep 12, 2014
News: Marshall (ankle) did not practice Friday and is questionable for Sunday's game against San Francisco, ESPN Chicago's Jeff Dickerson reports. Impact: Marshall participated in Chicago's walkthrough Friday, according to Chicago Sun-Times writer Adam Jahns, but the walkthrough didn't involve anything more than a light jog. Marshall is a game-time decision for the Sunday night game, which is obviously a very tough spot for his owners. Marshall has a history of playing hurt and has at least a decent chance of playing, but his owners would ideally have access to Santonio Holmes or another viable backup option in the Sunday or Monday night games. Like Marshall, fellow starting wideout Alshon Jeffery is also questionable, though Jeffery logged a limited practice Friday.(RotoWire, )

News: Marshall missed Thursday's practice, but coach Marc Trestman said that the wideout will attempt to test out his right ankle sprain Friday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: Marshall intends to take the field Sunday in San Francisco, according to Michael C. Wright of ESPN Chicago, but his availability may be contingent upon his practice participation Friday. In any case, the final injury report of the week should shed light on his ultimate status for Week 2.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Sep 11, 2014
News: Marshall (ankle) didn't take part in the portion of Thursday's practice open to the media, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: Marshall appears to have logged back-to-back missed practices, which will be confirmed one way or the other when coach Marc Trestman releases the injury report following drills. Expect Marshall's status to clear up by week's end.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Sep 10, 2014
News: Marshall didn't practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: Marshall's ankle was taped on two separate occasions in the second half of Sunday's loss to the Bills, but he still mustered eight receptions (on 12 targets) for 71 yards and a touchdown. Don't be surprised if his workload is held in check throughout the week, though his status for Sunday night's game in San Francisco should crystallize by the end of the week.(RotoWire, )

News: Marshall, who caught eight passes on 12 targets for 71 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Bills, had to have his ankle taped up twice during the second half, after injuring it on the final play of the third quarter, according to Impact: Marshall made a seven-yard catch to end the third quarter and had his ankle taped during the break. He re-entered the game, but then limped off after a third-down incompletion thrown his way, prompting the second tape-job. He was able to get back on the field and finish the game, but it wouldn't be surprising if he was limited in practice early next week to rest his ankle. The good news is that it doesn't appear to be a serious issue and he is unlikely to be in jeopardy of missing Week 2 at the 49ers.(RotoWire, )
