Brandon Marshall out for 4 months?

In case you hadn’t heard the news yet, recently the Denver Broncos top receiver, Brandon Marshall, was injured in a freak “fast food bag” incident. According to Stats.com:

Marshall could miss up to four months of off-season preparations after slicing his right forearm in a freak accident. Marshall said he slipped on a fast-food bag Saturday while wrestling with family members at a Florida resort and put his right arm through a home entertainment center.

In a statement, Broncos head athletic trainer Steve Antonopulos confirmed reports Marshall “sustained right forearm lacerations to one artery, one vein, one nerve, two tendons and three muscles.” Marshall might be ready to resume football activities in time for the start of training camp in late July.

While he does his best to tarnish the name that I also share, he is also doing his best to displease a keeper league team owner who planned to keep Marshall in the up coming season. Now I have to wait upwards of four months to see if this injury will have any longer term effects that could push into the start of the season.

Coming off of a great season last year, Marshall was expected to be a top 10 receiver going into this season (or at least I think he should have been), but we’ll now have to wait and see what this injury does to his standing.

At this point, Marshall is developing quite the rap sheet, including a drunk driving incident, a domestic dispute (although charges were dropped), and now this. At least he hasn’t reached Pacman Jones status yet, who is being pursued by the Cowboys currently. I guess that’s a good thing for Marshall’s feeling of job security.
