Now that they’ve gotten the rings, the Broncos are suddenly getting the finger.
According to Nicki Jhabvala of the Denver Post, Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall was limited this week in OTAs because of offseason finger surgery, the third player on the team to need a digital fix this offseason.
Marshall’s work was on his right index finger, and he’s going to be re-examined next week by Dr. Randy Viola (who also operated on quarterback Mark Sanchez’s left thumb).
“Right now I’m just rehabbing and focusing on getting my range of motion and my strength back,” Marshall said. “So they’re just holding me out so I don’t do any more damage — because I don’t want to get another procedure on it.”
Marshall was bothered by a 2014 Lisfranc injury throughout last season, and one of the screws inserted into his foot to stabilize the injury snapped. He injured his right index finger in Week Two of the regular season, but started all 16 games.
Tight end Virgil Green also had finger surgery and will miss part of OTAs.
