News and Notes
Champ Bailey won’t play in tonight’s opener
The Denver Broncos have confirmed that Champ Bailey won’t play in the team’s Thursday night opener against the Baltimore Ravens. His sprained left foot hasn’t healed enough for Bailey to take the field with confidence; the team hasn’t determined at this point whether Bailey’s absence will extend beyond Week 1.
This news provides a slight boost in value for Joe Flacco and Jacoby Jones and significantly weakens a Denver defense that has already been handicapped by Von Miller’s suspension. If you were planning to roll with the Broncos this week, I’ve got plenty of better options coming in just a few paragraphs.
