Champ Bailey is practicing for the first time since injuring his left foot last month.
The Denver Broncos' perennial Pro Bowl cornerback hadn't practiced since getting hurt in an exhibition game at Seattle on Aug. 17.
Barring a setback, he'll play Monday night against Oakland after missing consecutive games for the just the fourth time in his 15-year NFL career.
Also returning to practice Thursday was tight end Joel Dreessen, who missed training camp while recovering from the second of two arthroscopic surgeries on his left knee this offseason.
And newcomer Winston Justice joined his teammates on the field after signing this week to take the roster spot of All-Pro left tackle Ryan Clady, who went on season-ending IR with an injured left foot.
