Drama seems to be reappearing in Denver. Coach McDaniels announced Friday that Brandon Marshall will not be playing in the playoff implication game this Sunday against Kansas City. Brandon, who was involved in a suspension earlier in the season, was seeking a trade by the deadline. Once it didn’t work however, Marshall began to play well and developed a good report with his Coach.
The reasons for his inactivation are unsure at this point. The wide receiver was battling a hamstring injury, but it seems he has also been unaccountable which is a big deal with coach McDaniels. McDaniels has also indicated the benching of TE Tony Sheffler because of similar reasons.
If you’re trying to set your lineup for the Championship Week you might find it difficult. Since its week 17 some player will sit and some playeres will play. Here’s a list of recommended starters for this week.
Mohamed Massaquoi @ Jacksonville
Jerome Harrison @ Jacksonville
Miles Austin – PHI
DeSean Jackson @ Dallas
Sydney Rice – NYG
Ray Rice @ OAK
Thomas Jones – CIN
Roddy White @ TB
Bree’s will not play, Brady will but limited. If you’re looking for a quarterback and you need one available you might want to head over to your free agent wire and see if Vince Young and Alex Smith are still available.
