It’s not official yet, but word around town is that Brandon Marshall will be suspended by the NFL for three games for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. If he “agrees to” attend counseling (does that mean he can just say, “Oh, sure, counseling! I’ll go!” and not actually do it?) the suspension will be for two games instead of three.
Marshall was arrested for DUI in 2007 (the trial is scheduled for September) and on false imprisonment and domestic violence charges earlier this year (he attended anger management classes and the charges were dropped).
Unrelated to the suspension, Marshall suffered a serious injury to his arm during the off season. In a Farnsworth-vs.-the-fan-esque comedy of errors, Marshall, while messing around with family members, got tripped up by a fast-food bag, and flew arm-first into an entertainment center. Fortunately, he has recovered from the injury and is doing well in training camp.
