Todd Bowles says Brandon Marshall is 'walking around pretty good'

New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall had one of the biggest scares of his career on Thursday night when his team played against their divisional rivals, the Buffalo Bills.

He feared the worst when he went down during the second quarter after his left knee twisted in an awkward fashion when Bills' cornerback Stephon Gilmore brought him down via his facemask. He held his knee in pain as many thought he had done ligament damage and would be out for the year.

However, much to the surprise of many, the 32-year-old was able to walk off the field and return later on in the game a couple of plays later, finishing with six catches for 101 yards. Jets' Todd Bowles provided some even better news to reporters the day after the game.

He said according to Pro Football Talk: "Brandon is fine. He has a sore knee. He got some treatment, but he’s walking around pretty good."

So from what many thought would be an injury which could put Marshall on the shelf for the rest of the season, the wide receiver could now end up playing next week when the Jets face the Kansas City Chiefs.

Somehow and in some way, the six-time Pro Bowler has managed to get away from the incident relatively unscathed, which is crazy when you think about a number of players these days in the NFL that pick up ACL or MCL injuries.

The amount of pain he looked he like was in on Thursday night felt like he would miss a significant amount of the season, but now he probably won't miss any time at all.
