Brandon Marshall Injury Updates

The Seahawks have agreed to a 1-year deal with free-agent WR Brandon Marshall, ESPN reports. The move comes well after Marshall visited Seattle, but he enters a depth chart with opportunity available. Doug Baldwin is the only incumbent at the position who has surpassed 71 targets in a season. We'll see what Marshall has left after a lackluster pre-injury stint with the Giants. He caught just 18 of 33 targets and averaged 8.6 yards per catch over 5 games. His Seahawks deal could reportedly be worth up to $2 million with incentives, less per-year money than Seattle gave Jaron Brown. Unless Marshall proves totally cooked this summer, though, his arrival complicates the target picture behind Baldwin. Tyler Lockett's later-round ADP will make him a solid upside bet. We'll see where others settle on the depth chart and ADP charts over the next couple of months.

Giants WR Brandon Marshall had to be carted back to the locker room with a left leg injury in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Chargers. He was in obvious pain after falling awkwardly at the end of a deep sideline shot. We'll update his status when we know more.

Update: Marshall is out for the rest of the game with an ankle injury.

Giants WR Brandon Marshall (shoulder) returned to practice on Monday, according to insider Dan Duggan. Marshall's injury was minor, and he should be a full-go for Week 1. He'll be busy in that one if WR Odell Beckham (ankle) is limited or out.

Giants WR Brandon Marshall suffered a shoulder injury in Monday night's preseason game against the Browns, according to ESPN's Lisa Salters. He went to the locker room for an x-ray. We'll pass along an update on Marshall when we get one. WR Sterling Shepard's stock could be on the rise if either Marshall or Beckham (ankle) isn't ready for Week 1.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard was carted off the field during Wednesday's practice. Trainers were reportedly working on his right leg. "He's in serious pain ... Apparently in tears. Not good," ESPN's Jordan Raanan tweeted. We should learn more soon, but this obviously has the look of a serious injury. Shepard's absence would likely mean target boosts for WR Brandon Marshall and TE Evan Engram. Stay tuned.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall told reporters on Thursday that he'll be on a "pitch count" in Saturday night's game against the Dolphins. He's listed on the injury report with knee, foot and back issues. Marshall was a shaky fantasy option anyway after being held under 50 yards and without a TD in 4 of his last 5. Now banged up and playing fewer snaps than normal, he's barely a WR3 for Week 15.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall (knee, foot) is not listed on the final Week 13 injury report. He didn't practice on Thursday or Friday but put in a full workout on Saturday. Marshall is safe to get into fantasy lineups for Monday night's game against a Colts defense allowing a league-high 92 yards per game to #1 WRs.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Jets players expect QB Bryce Petty to draw the start against the Rams today. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was limited in practice this week with his knee injury, but it sounds like he's healthy enough to play. So this looks like a changing of the guard in New York. Fitzpatrick hasn't been good this season, but it's tough to imagine Petty being an upgrade in the short term. We moved Brandon Marshall down the Week 10 WR Rankings.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Petty will start.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Jets WR Brandon Marshall (knee) is expected to play against the Chiefs today but will be on a snap count. We've already seen the snap count thing play out multiple ways this season -- good for Kelvin Benjamin, bad for Rob Gronkowski -- and it's impossible to know just how involved Marshall will be. He's played well through injuries in the past, so we're keeping him in low-end WR2 territory in the Week 3 Rankings.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall (knee) is questionable for this weekend’s game against the Chiefs. He put in a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days. HC Todd Bowles suggested that Marshall will be a game-time decision. Considering he was able to play through the injury in Week 2, we’re guessing he’ll play on Sunday. But we’ll be looking for early-morning updates. Jets-Chiefs doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET.

Pro Football Talk hears that Jets WR Brandon Marshall (knee) is not a lock to play against the Chiefs next Sunday. He suffered an MCL injury in Thursday night's win over the Bills but was able to return to that game. That -- plus the extra 3 days rest he'll get -- makes us believe he'll be ready by next weekend. But we'll track his status throughout the week.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall missed Saturday night's preseason game against the Giants because of a "sore" hip, HC Todd Bowles told NJ.com afterward. Marshall didn't appear on the injury report heading into the game, and the Jets downplayed the issue. It's worth monitoring, however, because of Marshall's history of hip trouble. He had surgery on the hip in 2009 and 2013 and revealed last October that he had previously contemplated retirement because of the issue. Given that this is the 1st indication of any trouble this summer, though, we're not moving Marshall down the rankings at this point. We'll see if he practices early this week.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall (toe, ankle) did not practice on Wednesday.  That doesn't kill his chances of playing against the Jaguars this weekend, but he's certainly not a lock to be ready.  We still don't know much about either injury.  Check back tomorrow for another update.

Jets WR Brandon Marshall injured a toe on 1 foot and an ankle on the other side in Sunday's loss to the Raiders.  He was able to return from both and told the media that he'll "be ok" afterward.  But Marshall also conceded that he'll "more than likely" need additional testing on the toe and ankle.  We should get an update on his status tomorrow.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Bears WR Brandon Marshall's season is "in doubt" with the injuries he suffered in Thursday night's loss to the Cowboys.  Per Rapoport, Marshall has fractured ribs and is also having his spleen examined.  Marshall owners need to prepare to be without him for the rest of the fantasy season.  His absence will move 2nd-year WR Marquess Wilson into the starting lineup.  The 6’3, 194-pounder is worth adding if you're desperate for WR help down the stretch.  Marshall's loss is obviously a big one for QB Jay Cutler.

Bears WR Brandon Marshall took a knee to the back in the 2nd quarter of Thursday night's game against the Cowboys.  He's been diagnosed with a rib injury and was taken to the hospital.  Marshall's absence will open up an opportunity for intriguing 2nd-year prospect Marquess Wilson. 

Bears WR Brandon Marshall (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.  The fact that he was out there at all suggests the injury isn't serious.  Marshall will play against the Vikings this weekend and should be in fantasy lineups -- even at less than 100%.
