According to Denver Broncos General Manager John Elway, linebackers Danny Trevathan and Brandon Marshall will avoid the PUP list. Infact, no Broncos will be on the PUP list this year.
Broncos will work Marshall and Trevathan in slowly, Elway said. Team will not be putting anyone on PUP list.— Jon Heath (@JonHeathNFL) July 30, 2015
This is great news for the Broncos and both Marshall and Trevathan. The Broncos need both of them healthy to have success on defense.
Now the Broncos coaches plan on working both players along slowly, so that means linebackers Todd Davis, Steven Johnson, Lamin Barrow and others will get some reps with the first team defense.
Marshall underwent surgery this offseason to repair a torn Lisfranc in his right foot. He has been rehabbing the injury all offseason but has missed OTA and Minicamp practices. He did some work with the rookies earlier this week, and reportedly look good according to Coach Kubiak.
Trevathan had a rough 2014 season where he had a trio of injuries to his left knee area. These injuries limited him only a handful of games in 2014.
He has been working out and rehabbing all offseason and is now ready to go for Training Camp. Like Marshall, Trevathan will be eased alonged slowly, but it's great that he avoided the PUP list.
It's great to see Marshall, Trevathan and rookie first-round pick Shane Ray all healthy and ready to take part in Training Camp.
