Broncos’ Marshall, D.J. Williams miss practice again

Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall and linebacker D.J. Williams did not participate in training camp drills today. The disgruntled receiver was absent for the second consecutive day and Williams, a co-captain last year, missed his second practice in three days.

Williams was ill Monday, but both veterans are complaining of soreness. They remained inside the club’s complex during an hour-long practice with mostly rookies and quarterbacks.

Coach Josh McDaniels said it is his standard procedure to shield any injured player from the field, even though viewing his new systems might benefit injured onlookers.

“They’ll get all the teaching and coaching that everyone else gets in the meeting room,” McDaniels said. “Every drill that we need filmed is going to be filmed They won’t get any less coaching.”

McDaniels said the same rule will be in effect when veterans report Friday. All injured players will be quarantined to the training room during on-field drills, and rejoin the rest of the team in post-practice meetings.
