BOSTON — Bears wide
receiver Brandon Marshall led the charge Sunday for Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather to be suspended after he was flagged twice for illegal hits.

Meriweather was suspended for two games Monday, but that was reduced to one game Wednesday.

‘‘The thing that concerns me is the health of him and other players,’’ Marshall said Wednesday from the Kennedy Forum. ‘‘The game has changed, and hopefully he changes his game and his approach to it, so he can be around living a healthy, effective life when he’s 60 years old.’’

Marshall said the Bears will ‘‘be good’’ without quarterback Jay Cutler, who tore a muscle in his left groin Sunday and is out at least four weeks.
