This afternoon during the Denver Broncos preparation for the Kansas City Chiefs, WR Brandon Marshall came up limping. He was running a route and, according to CBS-4 in Denver, strained his hamstring.
This prompted quite a few folks to wonder whether he would be available for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Officially, he's listed as a limited participant with a hamstring injury on the practice report. However, citing a team source Mike Lombardi of NFL Network reports Marshall is expected to suit up and play on Sunday.
Of course that's what anyone is going to say at this point. Marshall's facing one of if not the biggest game of his young career and the Broncos need a win to get into the playoffs.
A Marshall-less Broncos team is still solid but not nearly as frightening as it is with him on the field.
Frankly, I'm glad Marshall's playing. Brandon Flowers won't be on him every play if past history is any indication but I love seeing two elite (yes, elite) players going against each other.
