(CBS) Bears receiver Brandon Marshall was released Sunday night from the hospital, where he’d been since suffering two broken ribs and what was reported to be a collapsed lung in last Thursday’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
“Brandon was released last night from the hospital,” Bears coach Marc Trestman said in an interview with WBBM Newsradio on Monday morning. “He’ll be home today, and we’ll see where he’s at as he gets back into the building.”READ MORE: High Ranking Cook County Sheriff's Office Official Resigns Amid Complaints Of Inappropriate, Unsolicited Sexual Comments To Colleague
