Marshall (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Marshall, who heads into Week 17 with 102 tackles in 15 games to date, will give it a go Sunday, but it remains to be seen how close to a full workload the linebacker will see in the Broncos' regular season finale.
Marshall (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Marshall, who missed practice both Wednesday and Thursday, was on the field with his teammates Friday morning, so he has a shot to play in Sunday's 4:25 ET contest, though such an outcome is hardly a lock at this stage. Marshall heads into Week 17 with 102 tackles in 15 games to date.
Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak said that Marshall (ankle) is the biggest concern among the team's injured players, USA Today's Lindsay Jones reports. If Marshall isn't available for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Chargers, either Todd Davis or Corey Nelson will likely join Danny Trevathan in the starting lineup. The Broncos can probably get by without Marshall for one game against a last-place team, which would then give the linebacker two weeks to rest before the divisional round of the playoffs.
Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall is still nursing a foot injury, but he said Wednesday he'll be able to participate in training camp, reports the team's official website. "I'll be back in training camp. That's what the word is," Marshall said. "I should be able to do some drills at the start of training camp. I'm not sure about everything else." Marshall suffered a mid-foot sprain last season, which required two screws inserted into his foot during the offseason. "I haven't really done a whole lot on it," Marshall said. "I do a lot more in the training room. My surgeon told me it will probably bother me a little bit throughout the whole year -- nothing to keep me out."
Broncos inside linebacker Brandon Marshall was able to lift weights with his teammates during Wednesday's OTA practice, according to the team's website. Marshall is still recovering from a foot injury which has kept him off the practice field thus far. "I think it will be fairly soon," Marshall said, "because I feel really good, honestly." Marshall injured his foot in a December game against the Chargers and later played through the pain in the playoffs against the Colts. He said that watching practice hasn't been as much fun as being out there. "It's kind of tough, because while I'm out here, I need to pay attention; I need to watch more film, because when you do it more, you get a better feel for it," he said. "I have to learn through visual learning and just trying to soak up as much information as I can, because when training camp comes, it's going to come fast, and I've got to learn fast. I'll be all right.
