Schefter: Champ Bailey to face the Colts
By Bill Williamson
DENVER –- ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Denver Broncos star left cornerback Champ Bailey will play Sunday against the pass-happy Indianapolis Colts.
Schefter reports right cornerback Andre Goodman will test his injured thigh in pregame warm-ups. Both players were listed as questionable on the injury report. They were limited in practice Friday after not working the two previous practice days.
Bailey injured his foot last week in a win against Seattle. Bailey was on crutches after the game.
Thus, Bailey has the tough task of going from crutches to facing Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne in a matter of a week. Tough duty, but I’m sure Denver would rather have a hobbled Bailey than no Bailey at all against the Colts. Rookie Perrish Cox will likely start for Goodman if he can’t play.
