NFL Injury Report:
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
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.
