The NFL was aware of the misdemeanor battery charges that could have been — and eventually were — filed against Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall on Sept. 10 in Fulton County, Ga.
Depending on the disposition of the case, additional league discipline could still be handed out to Marshall.
Marshall’s attorney Harvey Steinberg said the NFL is not expected to take additional action against the Broncos wide receiver, who already was suspended from Denver’s season-opening game against the Oakland Raiders. Originally the league decided to suspend Marshall for three games, then lowered it to one after Steinberg’s successful appeal.
Steinberg said the NFL had the police reports of his client’s arrest when it decided to suspend Marshall for three games.
In his first game back with he Broncos this season, Marshall caught a single-game franchise record 18 passes. Dating back to last year, Marshall’s 55 receptions in his past five games are the most in NFL history for any five-game period.
