Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall announced via Twitter on Tuesday that he was given medical clearance to participate in practice.

The veteran wide out underwent arthroscopic hip surgery in January. He sent out a tweet stating that he was given the go-ahead to resume football activities.

“Just got cleared to get back out there with my teammates.#Glory,” Marshall wrote. “Only right to get in the zone by blasting@Unclereece Until I pass out.”

The Bears are slated to finish up OTA’s this week before minicamp begins on June 11.

Marshall played in all 16 games during his first season in Chicago. He hauled in a career-high 118 receptions for a personal-best 1,508 yards and 11 touchdowns en route to being named to his fourth Pro Bowl.
