Bears injury report: Brandon Marshall, Blake Costanzo added

USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears added wide receiver Brandon Marshall to the injury report on Thursday.

The Chicago Bears are in a tight spot with only two games to go and on the outside looking in to the NFL playoffs. Some of their issues this season have revolved around injuries, and heading into Week 16, there's some new names to add, unfortunately. According to ESPN Chicago's Michael C. Wright, wide receiver Brandon Marshall was added to the injury report on Thursday.

Marshall was added with a hamstring injury that he apparently suffered on Wednesday. He's the team's leading receiver, and if he were to miss time, it would be huge. The Arizona Cardinals - Chicago's Week 16 opponents - already boast one of the NFL's top passing defenses, and Marshall being absent would give them an advantage they didn't need.

Fortunately, it looks as though Marshall will still play on Sunday, but it's unclear if he will be hampered by the injury at all.

Jonathan Scott and Brian Urlacher remained out with injuries, while receiver Earl Bennett practiced in a limited capacity on Thursday. Geno Hayes, Tim Jennings, Shea McClellin and Henry Melton also worked out in a limited capacity, but their status for Sunday remains up in the air.

Linebacker Blake Costanzo was also added to the injury report on Thursday, but he is expected to play.
