New York Jets WR Brandon Marshall went down with an ugly looking knee injury in last Thursday’s game against the Buffalo Bills. I thought for sure he had a significant injury but then he returned to the game. While it appears he escaped serious injury, there is some question about his injury status for Sunday’s Week 3 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

This is big. Marshall can be a difference maker against the Chiefs and their young secondary. Keenan Allen was torching the Chiefs secondary before he was hurt in Week 1. It didn’t get better in Week 2 as both DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller went over 100 yards receiving.
Marshall is a beast that can win one on one matchups. He had 1,500 yards and led the NFL with 14 touchdowns lats year. His status will play a big role in this game.
