On Wednesday, linebackers Brandon Marshall and Danny Trevathan met with the media and discussed how their respective rehabs have been going and when Bronco fans can expect to see these them back on the field.

Here are some of the key things to take away from the presser:

Marshall: (If he’ll be back at the start of training camp…) “Probably the start. I should be able to do some drills at the start of training camp. I’m not sure about everything else but I know I’ll be able to do drills at the start of training camp.”

Trevathan: (If he will be ready for the start of training camp…) “I think I’ll be ready but I’m just going to take it one day at a time. That’s all I can do. At the same time, I’m feeling better than I did before. I’m more confident and I’m just all-around a better person. I had a couple games—basically a year to take off, get my mind right and prepare for this season. It was tough. There are some things I’ve got to work on with this leg. I want this leg to be stronger than it’s ever been since I’ve been playing. I have to take that every day, attack my workout and therapy and I won’t have any problems this year.”

Marshall: (On his injury…) “I wish we could have got it done sooner and I would have been a lot farther along. It’s your foot, it’s annoying, but everything happens for a reason so I’ll get through this just like I’ve gotten through everything else.”

Trevathan: (If he feels pain…) “I got a new kneecap. The old one is gone. It’s best foot forward. Anything can happen on any given Sunday and all you can do is lay it all out there, have no fear, take everything seriously and have fun. At the same time, I have no setbacks right now and it’s just fun being in with them and just working. Just keep getting better at something you were down about. You have a chance to make it better and go out there and show that you can still be one of the best in this league.”

Marshall: “It’s been kind of tough (rehabbing) because I’m used to always being out there doing my part to get better and help the team so it’s been a little rough, but I’m taking this time to really get my body right, really get my mind right and I think it’ll be beneficial.”

Trevathan: “I’m doing quad strengthening; step-ups with weight. I’m doing squats; I’m doing leg presses; I’m doing a lot of balance, a lot of core; stretching a lot. I’m just doing (rehab) everything I need to do. There are a lot of things. I can go on and on, but it’s all about getting this leg to the best of its ability. I went through surgery and I’m feeling good right now but I want to make sure I feel great before I go out there again.”

Marshall: (How he’s remained focused…) “In the meeting rooms I try to be locked in. I try to be dialed in on the field and I try to get all the calls and try to put myself in the position of the players while they’re in there. Me and Danny (Trevathan) try to do the same thing. Get the call, we understand it, OK—we’ll be right here or whatever the case may be. There is a lot of responsibility so I think mental reps are just as important. Obviously you need to be in there, but mental reps can help you a lot.”

Trevathan: (If it has helped to rehab with Marshall…) “I wish he wasn’t in there (but) it helps us. I had Nate (Irving) for a little bit when he was in there but now I’ve got Brandon. It’s always reassuring and it’s positive. Von (Miller) and Chris (Harris Jr.) were together (rehabbing) and you saw how they came back. That’s what me and Brandon are taking out there. We want to be the best —the best fielding linebackers, the best-looking linebackers (laughing)—everything.”

Marshall: (On position changes from a year ago…) “It’s not a whole lot different in my eyes because it’s kind of the same just a different title to the defense. But it’s less complicated, it’s not as intricate as it was with [former Defensive Coordinator Jack] Del Rio’s defense. It will be less to think about which I think will help us out.”

Trevathan: (On the defensive system…) “It makes it so much easier. We don’t have to make too many checks. Basically we just play with the look and just do what we do. We might need some checks at gametime but right now we’re just focusing on getting into the defense, lining up, being physical and just making the plays that we need to make.”
