Worlds set to collide for Brandon Marshall in mid-August

When the domestic battery trial of Broncos receiver Brandon Marshall was postponed from June 11, it was reported only that the case had been continued to August.

The folks at report that the case is due to convene in Atlanta on August 13.

The good news?  The Broncos don’t practice that day.

The bad news?  They are scheduled to travel to San Francisco on August 13 for a preseason game on August 14. 

Though the situation might be different if Marshall had been summoned to testify as a witness or to serve on a jury, Marshall’s absence is the result of his own conduct.  The Broncos, then, presumably will have the discretion to take the position that the leave of absence is not approved, which would expose Marshall to fines and other potential consequences.

And that could be particularly expensive for Marshall if the trial begins on August 13 and requires at least two days of court time.  Under that scnario, Marshall would miss the preseason game, which could cost him a full regular-season game check.

    If the Broncos intend on keeping Marshall, I don’t think they will fine him or take any other action against him. It makes no sense for the Broncos to fan the flames at this point.
