After injuring the ankle on Sunday, Marshall sat out the last two practices. He returned to practice today in a limited fashion. Getting back on the field portends good things for his availability for this weekend’s contest against the Minnesota Vikings.
Marshall is coming off his best game of the season last week when he caught 8 passes for 112 yards and a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers.
Also returning to practice today were CB Tim Jennings (knee) and DE Cornelius Washington (illness), who both practiced in full, as well as TE Martellus Bennett (ribs) who was limited. LB Darryl Sharpton (hamstring) was limited for the second day in a row.
Those who did not participate in practice include OL Eben Britton (illness), T Jordan Mills (ribs), WR Josh Morgan (shoulder), CB Terrance Mitchell (illness) and DE Trevor Scott (knee). Mitchell and Scott were not on yesterday’s injury report.
