ESPN reports that Bears receiver Brandon Marshall missed minicamp practice Wednesday because of his previous hip injury. Marshall was able to practice Tuesday, but the report says the Bears want to be careful with how they handle his recovery from offseason arthroscopic hip surgery. Marshall anticipates being 100 percent when training camp opens in July.
ESPN reports that Bears rookie receiver Marquess Wilson missed minicamp practice Wednesday because of what coach Marc Trestman called a light hamstring tweak. Wilson participated in Tuesday's workout, but it's unknown whether he strained his hamstring in that session or during Wednesday's practice.
ESPN reports that the injury Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery suffered was a tweaked hamstring. The report said the "injury isn't believed to be serious," and the Bears are "just being cautious" with the second-year receiver.
Updating a previous report, Bears kicker Robbie Gould has been cleared by his doctor to participate in the team's OTA workouts this week. He's apparently recovered from surgery to fix a ruptured hamstring.
NFL.com reports that after investigating Daryl Washington for an alleged domestic dispute Wednesday, Phoenix police arrested the Cardinals linebacker. Washington has been booked on two counts of aggravated assault, according to Maricopa County court documents Friday. The charges stem from an incident in which a woman alleged that she was the victim of a domestic violence assault involving Washington. This has been a disastrous offseason for Washington. It was only a month ago that he was suspended four games for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. "This is a legal matter, and I am limited in what I can say other than that my lawyer and I will continue to cooperate with investigators and welcome the opportunity for all the facts to be presented," Washington said in a statement. "I regret that the situation has brought this kind of attention to my family and my team. I look forward to resolving it as soon as possible."
Cardinals running back Ryan Williams told the Arizona Republic that he was more concerned about his knee than his play last season, saying he played scared. Williams came back from a torn patella tendon suffered in 2011 and wasn't ready for the physical punishment that comes with playing running back. Per the story, he got nervous when then-quarterback Kevin Kolb would call '39 toss' because it exposed his right side and his injured knee. The lack of confidence left him "pretty much scared all last year to get the ball in my hands." He added hurting his shoulder was a "blessing" because it allowed him time to get his knee feeling good. Now he says he's not scared anymore. "This is the healthiest I've felt in the past two years," Williams said. "It feels good to be able to run like myself, instinctive and not having to think about what Im doing, just going out and doing it. I've been working real hard, so things are looking good. My stars are aligned this year."
