Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall didn't like hit on Jay Cutler

Brandon Marshall has reiterated that he thought Ndamukong Suh delivered a dirty hit to Jay Cutler.

Though Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler was able to return to Monday night's game after a vicious hit by Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall has reiterated that he thought the hit was dirty. Marshall tweeted as much after the game and then called in to ESPN's "First Take" on Tuesday to restate his position:

"Last night, the leg whip that Ndamukong Suh placed on our quarterback Jay Cutler, that was dirty. That was dirty," Marshall said. "He can be one of the best D-tackles that ever done it, but he cannot do that that way. If you look at it, c'mon man, this is not wrestling. You don't do that. That's not clean."

Cutler, for his part, has stated that he thought the hit was clean. Suh, who has a reputation as one of the league's most ruthless players, told reporters after the game that it was "simply a football play."

Chicago's 2011 season was derailed in part because of an injury to Cutler, and no one around the organization would like to see a repeat of that happen. The good news for Chicago is that Cutler also said on Tuesday that there is "zero chance" that he will miss Sunday's game vs. the Carolina Panthers.
