Bears general manager Phil Emery says it’s too soon to say if recently acquired Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall will be suspended because of allegation that he struck a woman at a New York City nightclub.

He says the team “is working through this process” with the league.

The Bears acquired Marshall from Miami for two third-round draft picks Tuesday, giving them the No. 1 receiver they’d been lacking, but news of the nightclub incident surfaced hours later.

New York City police say a woman filed a complaint alleging Marshall punched her in the face at a nightclub over the weekend. Marshall has not been charged in the incident, which the woman says occurred at 3:50 a.m. Sunday outside the Marquee in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood.
