Sunday, Dec. 14 

Mike Klis of The Denver Post reported the news of Marshall's injury:

The 25-year-old entered Week 15 as Denver's leading tackler. He had recorded 88 tackles, in addition to two sacks and an interception. Marshall had four total tackles on Sunday before exiting.

Denver's high-powered offense is the big reason for the team's success, but it's undeniable how much better the Broncos defense is when compared to a year ago. Marshall has had a big role in that turnaround, so his absence leaves a significant hole.
