ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall appears unlikely to make his season debut in Sunday night's exhibition against the Chicago Bears after missing practice again.
Marshall, who had offseason hip surgery, has missed most of the team's training camp with a hamstring problem. He also has requested a trade after clashing with the organization and new coach Josh McDaniels over his desire for a new contract.
McDaniels refused to specify the reasons for Marshall's absence from practice. He had returned to practice Tuesday, and McDaniels had said he participated fully in the team's drills. However, Marshall appeared to hold himself out of some pre-practice warmup drills Wednesday - the only portion of the team's workout open to the media and was nowhere to be seen on Thursday.
