Marshall gets another chance to prove his worth with Danny Trevathan on short term injured reserved with another fracture in his leg.

The Broncos defense didn’t miss a beat after Trevathan went out against the Jets. The goal now is to do the same against San Fran.

The benefit is that Marshall was in the spot the first three games of the season and played well. He needs to do even more while Trevathan is out.

Marshall needs to leave no doubt in the minds of his teammates and coaches he can do the job. He’ll get his first crack at it this Sunday.
