Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey‘s hamstring held him out of his third straight game Sunday, a brutal 49-23 loss to the Green Bay Packers. He won’t let it become a fourth.
Bailey, after the game, per the Denver Post: “I’m definitely playing next week.”
That’s the talk of a frustrated man. A man who is tired of sitting on the sidelines watching his team lose. Whether his frustrations are borne of the team’s medical staff, his hamstring, or himself for playing it safe, he decided to bypass any such concerns with a promise to play next week.
Maybe Bailey’s promise also came as a reaction to his coach’s words. John Fox didn’t sound too thrilled about Bailey missing the game either.
“I think missing Champ Bailey didn’t really help matters much with multiple wideouts,” Fox said. “I think that’s why we saw so much of it.”
