Bears' Marshall still in hospital, out indefinitely

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall remains in a local hospital one day after injuring his ribs and lung in Thursday's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Bears announced that Marshall fractured two ribs as the result of a hit from Cowboys safety Barry Church during the second quarter of Chicago's 41-28 loss. According to the team, the lung injury is what is keeping the Pro Bowl wideout hospitalized, and he has already been ruled out for the Bears' next game against New Orleans on Dec. 15.

There's a strong possibility that Marshall's season is over, since Chicago was officially eliminated from playoff contention with Thursday's loss.

Marshall was transported to the hospital shortly after being helped off the field and taken to the locker room following the collision. He later sent out a Twitter message stating: "Thanks for the Prayers. .. I'm Good."

The five-time Pro Bowl selection had three catches for 61 yards prior to exiting Thursday's game. On the season, Marshall has recorded 61 receptions totaling 721 yards and is tied for the team lead with eight touchdown catches.
