07:48 AM ET 01.16 | The Pro Bowl may have to go on without Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall, too. [Marshall] needs to undergo an arthroscopic procedure on his hip, according to an NFL source, who called the upcoming surgery "nothing," before adding it could put the Pro Bowler out of action "probably two weeks." Given the timeframe for recovery, the source indicated it's doubtful Marshall will play in the Jan. 27 Pro Bowl, but that hasn't yet been decided. Marshall plans to have the surgery late Monday or Tuesday morning, but it's unknown which hip he'll have repaired. The receiver has undergone at least one arthroscopic procedure on each of his hips over the course of his career. A four-time Pro Bowl receiver, Marshall caught a Bears single-season record 118 passes.

Thanks Otis. I'm happy enough with the Trestman hire. I can't say Phil Emery wasn't thorough enough in his search.

He needs surgery to remove the nutjob from his head.

The first 1000+ Bears WR since Marty Booker in 2002... I'll admit I was a little skeptical of the acquisition at first, but Brandon certainly got the job done.

He's had quite a few hip surgeries, but always comes back strong.

Most of them are still under contract. Dave Toub is not sticking around, likely joining Andy Reid in KC. Rod Marinelli is the one coordinator a lot of Bears fans are hoping will stick around.

Gotcha.

Finding an excuse to avoid playing in the Pro Bowl is a sign of some mental function, though.

Even with Marshall's record breaking season the Bears offense still ranked near the bottom of the league.

Marshall is tough. I hope he gets through this.
