Marshall's Suspension Reduced By Goodell

DENVER (AP) - Denver wide receiver Brandon Marshall's suspension for personal conduct violations has been reduced to one game, down from the original three.

Marshall had appealed the original NFL suspension and learned Thursday of the reduction. He also forfeits his pay for an additional game, for a two-game total of $52,352.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Marshall for violating the NFL personal conduct policy with a series of misdeeds. At the time, Marshall was told the suspension could be cut to two games if he stayed out of trouble and kept in touch with a league-appointed counselor.

Goodell reduced the penalty after Marshall went to New York last week to appeal.

Marshall's suspension begins Saturday. He can return to Broncos headquarters Sept. 9.
