Jose Earthquakes.

  • ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Colorado Avalanche Shirts . - Broncos top tackler Brandon Marshall says he expects to play Sunday night at Kansas City after clearing concussion protocol and practicing in full Friday.It should be normal, said Marshall, Denvers versatile linebacker who leads the team with 92 tackles.Marshall was knocked out of last weeks win over the Dolphins when he ran into 6-foot-4, 265-pound tight end Dion Simms on T.J. Wards interception return in the fourth quarter.I hit him with the side of my helmet and then thats all she wrote, Marshall said. I remember everything. I was just dizzy. I couldnt stand up. I tried to run and I fell twice.Simms was unfazed while Marshall was wobbly.Hes like 270, Marshall marveled. I didnt think he was that big. I hit him and just like shrugged it off. Im like, Damn. I knew he was big but I didnt know he was that solid like that. It didnt faze him, which was disappointing to me.Nonetheless, Marshall said as far as concussions go, this one wasnt severe. He said he was confident hed be cleared to play this week because honestly, it wasnt that bad. Right after the game I could drive. So, I was good to go.Marshall said he was dizzy for a couple of minutes but didnt have any memory loss or headaches and had no problems during the week.Marshalls quick return to action is a stroke of luck for the Broncos, who have two linebackers on IR in Danny Trevathan (who returns next month) and Nate Irving.Also, the Chiefs strength is up the middle with running back Jamaal Charles, who is averaging better than 5 yards a carry and is third on the team in receptions with 26. He has eight rushing touchdowns and three TD catches.Well take every healthy guy we can, Broncos defensive co-ordinator Jack Del Rio said.Del Rio was preparing a bevy of backups, including rookies Lamin Barrow and Corey Nelson, and newcomer Todd Davis for action this weekend.Brandon has stepped in for Danny (Trevathan) and done a nice job for us, Del Rio said. Were preparing the other guys in case we have another pop up right in the middle of the game. So, you continue to work your backup guys. But him getting cleared is a good sign for us.Marshall said hes relieved he wont have to miss the AFC West showdown with the Chiefs (7-4), who trail the Broncos by a game in the division race.Its a big game. Everyone wants to play in this game. This is the biggest game of our season so far. And Im just glad the concussion wasnt too bad, Marshall said. I came back, Ive been studying all week .Even though I havent been practicing, Ive been paying attention. So, Im just glad to be back out there.Charles was knocked from Kansas Citys game at Denver in Week 2 with an ankle injury. In Denvers 24-17 win over Kansas City in September, Charles had just two carries for 4 yards and one catch for 8 before getting hurt. Backup Knile Davis ran 22 times for 79 yards and two touchdowns, but the Chiefs sorely missed Charles on their two drives that stalled after getting inside Denvers 5-yard line.He presents a tremendous challenge. Hes one of the best backs in the league. Hes a very versatile back, Marshall said. He can catch, he can run, he can make you miss. He can run inside the tackles, he can run outside the tackles. The guy is an incredible talent, were going to have our hands full this week. But weve got a good plan. Weve got a good, tight plan and well get things done.Marshall is officially listed as probable. Aqib Talib (hamstring) is 50-50. Three players are out: Kayvon Webster (shoulder), Ronnie Hillman (foot) and Montee Ball (groin).___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton Colorado Avalanche Store . PAUL, Minn. Colorado Avalanche Pro Shop . Moments after scoring and setting off another wild celebration at Minsk arena, Platt leapt into the arms of Belarusian captain Alexei Kalyuzhny.On a rainy May 5th, 1974, the Vancouver Whitecaps took the field for the first time and faced the San Jose Earthquakes.  Almost 40 years to the day, the two teams will meet again, this time at BC Place, to celebrate the past and try to earn important points for the present. The game can be seen on TSN2, including a special Whitecaps 40th anniversary pre-match show at 6:30pm et/3:30pm pt. The Whitecaps enter the game riding the momentum of two draws earned thanks to late tying goals. In their 2-2 draw in the second of back-to-back games against the Los Angeles Galaxy, Kekuta Manneh equalized in the 86th minute after Robbie Keane had given the visitors the lead. Then after falling behind Real Salt Lake 2-0 last Saturday, Nicolas Mezquida and Sebastian Fernandez scored in the 86th and 94th minute, respectively, to rescue the second consecutive comeback point for the Whitecaps. After earning points in their first four games of the season, including two winss, the Whitecaps dropped two in a row before the draws. Cheap Avalanche Jerseys.   They currently hold a 2-2-4 overall record. Meanwhile, the Earthquakes earned their first victory of the season, 1-0 over Chivas USA, in their last outing.  The win snapped a five-game winless streak to start the season where they earned three points. They enter the game with a 1-2-3 record. Including that inaugural match between the two clubs which the Earthquakes captured 2-1, this will be the 34th all-time meeting of the two squads.  San Jose holds the advantage, winning 14 times, while Vancouver has eight victories and they have drawn 11 matches. In the Major League Soccer era, the Whitecaps have only beaten the Earthquakes once from eight games, with four draws, though they have yet to lose an MLS game to San Jose at home.
