Broncos Wide Receiver Marshall Gets Suspension Reduced To 1 Game

By  | 

Broncos wide receiver Brandon Marshall will serve a one-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy, instead of the original three-game suspension.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell suspended Marshall for a series of off-field issues. At the time, Marshall was told the suspension could be cut to two games if he stayed out of trouble and kept in touch with a league-appointed counselor.

Goodell reduced the penalty Thursday after Marshall went to New York last week to appeal.

He'll also forfeit his pay for an additional game, for a two-game total of $52,352.

Marshall's suspension begins Saturday. He can return to Broncos headquarters Sept. 9.
