Cutler doesn't expect Marshall to miss time

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler remains confident that Brandon Marshall won't miss any time resulting from the incident in a New York City nightclub in which he was accused of striking a woman.

"I don't think he's going to miss any time," Cutler said Tuesday on "The Waddle & Silvy Show" on ESPN 1000. "All that stuff is pending legally. Me and Brandon have talked a little bit about it. It's all going to work out, I'm pretty confident in that. Brandon's heading into town this weekend and he's going to be there Monday (at the voluntary offseason conditioning working) with me."

Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher is confident that Cutler will be a good influence on Marshall, who was his teammate for three years in Denver.

"Brandon is a good guy," Urlacher said. "I know he's had some issues. Everyone says that. I've been around him a couple times. Jay's going to handle that situation, so I'm not worried about it.

“Jay is a straightforward guy. He's been around Brandon. I don't think it will be an issue. He's coming to a good situation, he's got a great quarterback, good offensive line, good running game, decent defense, great coaching staff, so I think it's a good situation for him to be in. He's going to get a lot of balls thrown at him, so that should keep him happy."
