Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall will have his hip scoped, according to an NFL source reported by Michael C. Wright.

The injury is reported to be minor and its not clear whether it is Marshalls left or right hip that will need the procedure.

In May of 2010, Marshall had a routine procedure on his right hip, just weeks after being traded to the Miami Dolphins from the Denver Broncos. Marshall previously had a more invasive hip surgery in March of 2009 to help alleviate a problem with his left hip that he had been dealing with for much of the 2008 season with the Broncos.

It is unknown if Marshall will still travel to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl on Jan. 27, where he was selected as a starting wide receiver for the NFC squad. The Bears' top receiver had career-highs in receptions (118), yards (1,508) and touchdowns (11), in his first year in Chicago.

Marshall played in all 16 games in 2012 and durability has never been much of a concern with him, as hes never missed more than two games in his seven-year NFL career.
