Marshall and Scheffler are officially out

As expected, Denver officially deactivated receiver Brandon Marshall and tight end Tony Scheffler from Sunday’s game against Kansas City. Denver head coach Josh McDaniels cited accountability issues for the deactivations.

Denver is also without receiver Eddie Royal. He will miss his second straight game with neck and head injuries. Denver’s healthy receivers are Jabar Gaffney, Brandon Stokley, Brandon Lloyd and Matt Willis, who was promoted from the practice squad Saturday.
