ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Disgruntled Denver Broncos wideout Brandon Marshall missed morning practice Tuesday for health reasons.
Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said Marshall's absence was simply a "precautionary measure" after he was sore following his first workout the day before.
Marshall had offseason hip surgery, but McDaniels wouldn't elaborate whether that's what bothered the Pro Bowl receiver.
The mercurial Marshall has made it clear he's unhappy in Denver. He skipped all offseason workouts to protest his contract and for what he feels was a misdiagnosis of his hip injury by the team's medical staff.
If Marshall were to hold out of camp, he'd be subject to daily fines of $15,888.
