Marshall meets with Shanahan

Denver Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall has a lot of talent, but has also found trouble off the field.

Marshall was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in downtown Denver only a few hours after the Broncos beat the Steelers last Sunday night. Marshall was issued a summons and released.

Broncos coach Mike Shanahan spoke with Marshall and wanted him to learn from his latest incident.

"He's a grown man and he understands the severity of something like that," Shanahan said. "He's a role model and hopefully presented with the same situation for the rest of his life, he'll use better judgment."

It wasn't Shanahan's first long talk with Marshall, who leads the Broncos in receiving. Marshall was arrested in March on suspicion of domestic violence and false imprisonment. According to court records he had an argument with his girlfriend and then blocked the taxi she was in from leaving his apartment complex. The charges were later dropped.

Marshall didn't answer questions about his arrest on Monday but gave a short statement about it.

"Basically, I know the seriousness of it and it was a terrible mistake," Marshall said. "I have my lawyer on it now and hopefully everything gets situated soon and I can talk more about it then."


--RB Travis Henry didn't practice Thursday, the second straight day he was out. Henry has bruised ribs. He will probably try to practice later this week, and then the Broncos will determine if he can play Monday against Green Bay.

--TE Tony Scheffler practiced for the second straight day on Thursday. Even though he has some soreness in his lower leg, he should be able to play this week.

--CB Champ Bailey was a limited participant for the second straight day of practice. He still has a quadriceps injury and the Broncos aren't pushing him too hard.

--CB Dre Bly has practiced all week despite a separated shoulder. He should be ready to go against Green Bay's dangerous receivers.

--RB Selvin Young could get an extra workload, whether Travis Henry (ribs) plays or not. Even if Henry plays, he is still in pain and unlikely to be ready for a full workload. The Broncos have confidence in Young, who would add a big-play element at halfback.
