07:08 AM ET 08.28 | In a way, two clocks are ticking -- one looking back and one on the very near future. Seven months after hip surgery and 11 days before the start of the regular season, Bears wideout Brandon Marshall still isn't feeling comfortable. "It's one of those things where I'm just trying to get healthy for Week 1," he said Tuesday after practice at Halas Hall. "So you've got to have a game plan coming off surgery, a third hip surgery. "So yeah, I'm not where I want to be right now. It's a little frustrating. But we'll see." Marshall said "some people might think I need to be farther on than where I am, so it's a little frustrating not being where I want to be right now and maybe being pushed a little bit." ... [Marc Trestman] said Marshall has good days and "days that haven't gone so well for him" with his hip.

Or, maybe he doesn't see the value of working hard in pre-season, and just doesn't want to do it.

Marshall has had quite a few hip surgeries....

Cutler awaits your impending recovery, Bran.

I read it as surgery on his Third hip. That would explain it.

Meh......

That would certainly explain his lack of speed this pre-season. Tough to get all three feet going in the same direction.

Wouldn't that be a removal, then? He should be even better when he recovers...

Note to my Packers: Hit Marshall in the hip.

And if he also gets turf-toe, he'll have a Hip-Hop injury.

Lady's and Gentlemen, give it up for Debbie Does! He'll (or She'll) be here all weekend!

That is the part that frustrated him. His football routes get better, but his dance moves suffer.

And you'd think they'd get better with Cutler throwing the ball only God knows where.

San Francisco. The other half of his half-sister is his half-brother.
