Key players missing time around the league

The Denver Broncos were missing a number of key veterans during their morning practice session on Monday, a list that included star WR Brandon Marshall.

Marshall injured his left leg with an hour left in practice Sunday. Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels declined to comment specifically on Marshall.

The Broncos were also missing DE Jarvis Moss, who is contemplating retirement, as well as S Brian Dawkins, RB Correll Buckhalter, WR Brandon Stokley and LB Wesley Woodyard.

McDaniels said the situation involving Moss was a personal one, and that he had been granted permission from the team.

“I’m not going to talk about Jarvis Moss,” McDaniels told reporters. “And everyone who was held out of practice today was basically a coaching decision. Some of those guys will be out here this afternoon. That’s kind of how it will be going forward.”

A few other injury notes:

  • The Panthers held their first traing camp practice Monday, but lost two starters to injuries — DT Maake Kemoeatu (ankle) and LB Jon Beason (hamstring). It appears Kemoeatu could miss the 2009 season with a torn Achilles’ tendon. Beason told he first injured the hamstring during a workout prior to camp.
