Receiver Brandon Marshall will wait patiently for the chances he gets in Denver’s offense.

Marshall didn’t play for a long stretch in the second quarter Sunday against Cleveland, but said that wasn’t because he was hurt (he feels fine) and said he’s comfortable with the playbook.

He said he has made only two mistakes in two games, which isn’t unusual.

“Me not being out there as much as I used to be, it’s something I have to get used to,” Marshall said. “It’s the National Football League, things change. I think I’m good enough to be out there but it doesn’t matter what I think. So, all I can do is embrace it. I’ve learned from trying to fight the system.”

Marshall has seven catches for only 61 yards but won’t make an issue out of his stats. Marshall said often that he was happy the Broncos are 2-0.

Quarterback Kyle Orton said his rapport with Marshall is a work in progress, but that’s true for all his receivers. 

“We did have a couple of miscommunications, but that wasn’t any different than with a couple of other wide receivers as well,” Orton said.

Injury update
Marshall, who is sick, couldn’t finish practice Wednesday. Receiver Brandon Stokley was held out with a thigh injury. Both should be able to play Sunday.

Linebacker Spencer Larsen (shoulder) was the only other player to completely miss practice Wednesday. Defensive lineman Le Kevin Smith (knee) was limited.
