ESPN is reporting that Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall was discharged from Northwestern Memorial Hospital on Monday and has been placed on the reserve/injured list.

Marshall spent three days in the hospital receiving treatment for a collapsed lung he suffered following a 15-yard reception in the second quarter of the Bears' 41-28 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night. Marshall also fractured two ribs on the play when Cowboys safety Brandon Church kneed the receiver in the back.

He finishes with 61 receptions for 721 yards, his lowest outputs since the five-time Pro Bowler's rookie season in 2006 while a member of the Denver Broncos. Marshall caught 218 passes for 2,803 yards and 23 touchdowns over his first two seasons in Chicago, and he signed a three-year extension in the offseason. He has dealt with chronic ankle problems for most of the year that limited his effectiveness.
The Bears elevated receiver Josh Bellamy to the 53-man roster from the practice squad to replace Marshall.
