As promised, Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall wore green cleats in Thursday night's game against the Giants to support Mental Awareness Week.

Marshall was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder in 2011, and wanted to raise awareness about the issue. And while the NFL gave Marshall permission to wear the green shoes, it was with the understanding that he would be fined for doing so.

"I'm going to get fined and I'm going to match that, and we want to partner with a cancer-care [charity]," Marshall said before the game. "We're still working on the details to give, really give back to an organization that is doing work in the mental health area. [Also], the diagnosis of breast cancer can hit families hard. It affects all of us."

Marshall caught nine passes for 87 yards, including 2 touchdowns, in the Bears' 27-21 win over the Giants.
