Denver Broncos LB Brandon M. Marshall (foot), who is expected to return for the divisional round game against the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, Jan. 11, is a key player for the team's defense in matchups, especially relating to opposing tight ends. The Broncos allowed nine touchdown passes to tight ends this season, including three TDs in the last five games. In Marshall's absence, LBs Todd Davis and Corey Nelson struggled in pass coverage. Marshall was the team's leading tackler this year with 113, and he's an every-down player at the position.

LB Todd Davis would play in the weakside linebacker spot in the base defense. Davis was in as an every-down linebacker in Week 15 when Trevathan and Marshall came out. LBs Corey Nelson and Lamin Barrow could also be in the mix for more playing time.
