NFC North links: Jasper Brinkley's durability

Chicago Bears

What would Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall be doing if he wasn't playing football? Marshall: "No telling, man. As of now, where we stand today, definitely in psychology. So intrigued, and it stimulates me, just learning how the mind works and just understanding people just through my own experience. So that's my goal. I'm definitely looking to get my master's degree in psychology and incorporate that with my foundation."

Detroit Lions

Rookie wide receiver Patrick Edwards is putting to use the same underdog approach he used during his college career.

Former Lions pass-rusher Bubba Baker says he doesn't think Ndamukong Suh's Thanksgiving Day stomp warranted a two-game suspension.

Green Bay Packers

Evan Dietrich-Smith, who was the recipient of Suh's stomp, says he's moved on from the incident. "I'm not here to be that guy Suh stomped on," he said. "It just happened to be on national TV, but I can't really do anything about that. I don't want to be that guy. I'm out to prove I'm not just that guy; I'm the guy that plays for the Packers."

Tickets for the team's annual Family Night go on sale today.

Minnesota Vikings

General manager Rick Spielman says Jasper Brinkley's durability is a concern. Spielman: "I know what we saw when he came in as a rookie and when he came in and filled in for E.J. [Henderson] and the potential we saw there. He's a big banger, physical inside middle linebacker that probably doesn't get enough credit for his athletic skill set as well. ... But again, the durability is a question right now, just because he hasn't played in a year and hasn't played much at all hardly through this offseason."
