Bears' Marshall, Jeffery day to day

Chicago Bears wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery did not practice today and are day to day, while offensive linemen Roberto Garza and Matt Slauson also missed practice.

For the Chicago Bears, Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills affected more than the win/loss columns, as injuries hit the team hard in the regular-season opener.

The club's two Pro Bowl wide receivers, Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Alshon Jeffery (hamstring), did not practice today.

“Right now, they’re day to day," coach Marc Trestman said after practice. "They’re in treatment today. They’re day to day. We’ll be optimistic until we learn otherwise.”

Starting center Roberto Garza (ankle) and left guard Matt Slauson (ankle) also did not practice, although Trestman wouldn't elaborate on the MRIs each player underwent on Monday.

"I don’t [have any new news]," said Trestman. "They both have ankles and they didn’t practice today. We’ll see where they are tomorrow. All I know is that they have ankles. That’s all I know.”

Two other Bears players didn't practice today: QB David Fales (shoulder) and FB Tony Fiammetta (hamstring).

Limited in practice were WR Josh Morgan (groin) and CB Charles Tillman (coach's decision).
