Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall was pleased to hear that Seattle Seahawks cornerbacks Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman won't be suspended for this Sunday's game between the Bears and Seahawks.

Marshall is the Bears leading receiver with 81 receptions for 1,017 yards and 8 touchdowns and is excited for the chance to matchup against the Seahawks talented corners. "I'm impressed about their swagger ... I'm excited about the matchup and getting this opportunity to compete against them."

Sherman also said that it is going to be fun to match up against Marshall. So far this season the Seattle corners have done well against some of the league's other top receivers, holding both Larry Fitzgerald and Calvin Johnson under 100 yards receiving each. The Seahawks rank third in total passing defense with 200.7 passing yards allowed per game.

Browner and Sherman are both facing potential four-game suspensions for using Adderall, a drug used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, without a prescription, but they are allowed to play while the appeal the decision.
