Brandon Marshall isn't a doctor, nor does he play one on TV.

Yet, that didn't stop the Bears receiver from offering his own on-air diagnosis of injured quarterback Jay Cutler while appearing on MSNBC's "Andrea Mitchell Reports" on Thursday.

"I predict Jay Cutler will be back in two weeks," Marshall said. "They say four-to-six, but we've got the right people around Jay right now so we'll get it done."

Marshall spent the majority of his six-minute-plus interview on the news program discussing his role in promoting awareness for mental health. Marshall attended an event for the cause Wednesday evening that was also attended by Vice President Joe Biden.



But Chicago sports fans will likely find the last few seconds the most noteworthy, when Marshall tells interviewer and admitted Bears fan Peter Alexander when he thinks Cutler will return.

Cutler suffered a groin injury Sunday against the Redskins, and the Bears announced Monday the quarterback is expected to miss at least four weeks. The Bears have a bye this week before taking on the Packers on Monday Night Football on Nov. 4.
