Brandon Marshall out Sunday, Relationship with team in doubt again

Here we go again.  The Denver Broncos and Brandon Marshall are once again at odds and this time it could be fatal to the already-scarred relationship.

Josh McDaniels announced earlier today that Marshall will be deactivated for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.  According to multiple sources, the issue appears to be Marshall not wanting to play with what McDaniels terms a 'slight hamstring injury'.

Broncos beat writer Frank Schwab of the Colorado Springs Gazette posted on his Twitter that McDaniels had concerns about Marshall's desire to paly as well -

Basically, McD's message is Marshall wouldn't play through some injuries that others will play with on Sunday.

This is not a good start to what is likely to be an interesting off-season for the Broncos.  They have a big decision to make with Marshall, should 2010 be an uncapped season.  Is this 'injury' the first salvo fired by Marshall, looking once again to force his way out of Denver?

Could be, and we might have to start wondering if Marshall's performance against the Eagles was his final game in a Broncos uniform.
