Champ Bailey sits out vs. Packers
ESPN.com news services
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey was inactive for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers.
Bailey has a hamstring injury and was limited in practice this week for the Broncos. He was replaced by Cassius Vaughn in the team's starting lineup.
Without Bailey, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers shredded the Broncos' secondary. Rodgers threw four touchdown passes and ran for two more as the Packers won 49-23.
Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil was active despite missing time in practice because of a shoulder injury.
As expected, running back Ryan Grant (kidney) and right tackle Bryan Bulaga (knee) were inactive for Green Bay. James Starks started in Grant's place.
