Found August 19, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
PLAYERS: Champ Bailey
TEAMS: Denver Broncos
The Denver Broncos lost several regulars to injury over the weekend during their second preseason contest, including Wes Welker and Champ Bailey. While Welker’s injury is thought to be minor, Bailey is dealing with a “serious foot sprain” that could take “several weeks” to heal, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. On #Broncos CB Champ Bailey: I'm told it's a serious foot sprain. Could take several weeks to heal. Several weeks better than several months — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 18, 2013 Initial reports said that no ligament damage was revealed when Bailey underwent an MRI following the game. If Rapoport’s report is true, it would be significant for the Broncos, not only because Bailey is a key member of their defense, but because fellow cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is also recovering from an injury, a high ankle sprain. To replace Bailey, the Broncos are expected to use Tony Carter. Pro Football Talk mentions that the free agent pickings are slim – if Denver would decide its in-house options aren’t sufficient – including Sheldon Brown and Nate Clements.
