Brandon Marshall insists he's comfortable with the Denver Broncos playbook and that his surgically repaired hip is no longer an issue.
But the receiver doesn't know why he is not playing more. Marshall spent most of the second quarter on the bench when the offense had the ball against Cleveland last weekend. He finished with three catches for 34 yards.
He says he's good enough to be out there.
Marshall missed most of the team's offseason program while rehabbing from hip surgery and protesting his contract. Broncos coach Josh McDaniels suspended Marshall for the last two games of the preseason for his petulant behavior at practice.
