View Full Version : Dove Valley Days: McDaniels clears up Marshall's standing

Tuesday's highlight:

After leaving the practice field Monday with a shoulder injury, right tackle Ryan Harris was back lining up with the first-team offense Tuesday. Harris was blocking for all 1,019 offensive snaps last season and no one does that without putting up with some pain. Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said he expects Harris to play in the preseason opener against the 49ers.


Lowlight:

The Broncos have done all they can to prevent Brandon Marshall from becoming a distraction by keeping him away from public view while he nurses a leg injury. But it may not be a stretch to say his trial Thursday in Atlanta could not only have a profound impact on his career, but on how the Broncos' fare this season. A favorable ruling could help Marshall start anew with no more legal cases in his future. A negative ruling could leave him vulnerable to a lengthy suspension meted out by commissioner Roger Goodell.


Quotable:

"I've looked better. I've had better bedheads."

Backup punter Britton Colquitt on the ghastly haircut he received as part of a rookie hazing prank. Rookie quarterback Tom Brandstater and center Blake Schlueter were also victims of new looks.


The point after:

Broncos coach Josh McDaniels clarified Brandon Marshall's second-team standing on the depth chart, saying he was mandated to publish one relative to the preseason game Friday in San Francisco. Marshall will not play in the preseason opener at San Francisco. After missing the entire offseason to recover from hip surgery and then protest his contract, Marshall opened camp July 31 lining up with the second team. Jabar Gaffney was playing at his spot on the first team. Marshall had a terrific first practice, but before he could reclaim his place as the team's top receiver, he suffered a leg injury two days later and hasn't returned.


Camp facts:

The next practice begins at 5:30 this evening. There is a 1 p.m.

Ryan McBean drives tackle Clint Oldenburg at Dove Valley.practice Wednesday, which will be the final session open to the public before the Broncos play their preseason opener Friday night in San Francisco. The practices tonight and Wednesday afternoon will be held at the team's Dove Valley headquarters. Admission and parking are free.

I bet if he is found guilty, he will get a 8 game suspension. No new contract, and will be gone next year.

Yes, depth charts are mandatory in the NFL.

I posted that the other day and a couple of knotheads disagreed.

I hope this is to insinuate the absence of his physical ability will have the 'profound affect on how the Broncos' fare this season' as nothing is as weak as success being susceptible to a players off-field antics...I hope from a psychological standpoint the Denver Broncos are categorically healthy.

Wasn't Dawkins still first team? No, I think Marshall's status is real due to missing minicamp and not performing well long enough in training camp to move back up. To borrow from Parcells "she" better get healthy and start practicing. I seem to remember an issue with Shanahan having to prod him back to practice following an injury as well. If he is not convicted this week, Marshall will not be handed his spot by any means.

Dawkins started camp as fist team, as stated Marshall started camp as second team (due to injury and absence) and didn't stay on the field long enough to move back up. Therefor Marshall stays second team.

I don't think Bmarsh will be apart of the Broncos 3-year re-building period. Should this happen, the Broncos can't expect to get a 1st & 3rd next year. As with Shanny and Cutler, Bmarsh and Denver may just need to cut their loses and move on. Can't force a square peg into a round hole.

Won't happen. Marshall will be a Bronco next year because the CBA expires and he won't get the payday he wants then either.

I'm almost positive that is the case. I really don't think he is disrupting the team enough (if at all) to cause that big of a problem even if they were that mentally weak.
