Brandon Marshall won’t end his NFL career on injured reserve.
The Giants wide receiver has no intention of retiring and plans to return next year despite undergoing season-ending ankle surgery.
That’s my mindset right now, Marshall told ESPN. I’m a competitor, and I don’t want to go out like that. I’m definitely not going out like that.

Marshall, 33, capped a disappointing first season with the Giants with 18 receptions for 154 yards and zero touchdowns after signing a two-year contract worth $12 million just five days after being cut by the Jets this past offseason.
The Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in New Orleans vacated Elliott’s preliminary injunction last Thursday, reinstating the six-game suspension handed down by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in August. Elliott’s suspension stems from domestic violence allegations in July of 2016.
The union immediately appealed Goodell’s decision and Elliott was able to play the first five games of the season while awaiting the ruling from the Fifth Circuit.

The NFLPA has filed a petition for an en banc appeal hearing and Elliott would be allowed to play while the two sides await a court date. Until then, Elliott’s attorney Frank Salzano will file a petition asking a New York judge to hear Elliott’s case before the full Fifth Circuit Court date.
If the restraining order and injunction are granted, Elliott would be allowed back on the field. The restraining order would be moot should the Fifth Circuit decide to grant the en banc hearing and then overturns last week’s decision by a three-judge panel.
