Found September 02, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
While we've discussed at length what the loss of Elvis Dumervil (stupid fax machines!) and Von Miller (a six-game suspension) means for the Denver defense the fact that cornerback Champ Bailey hasn't been practicing has been a quiet storyline as the Broncos enter their season-opener vs. the Ravens. Bailey sprained his foot in Denver's preseason game against the Seahawks on Aug. 17 and he hadn't practiced in a few weeks because of it. On Sunday Bailey returned to practice and though coach John Fox wasn't much interested in updating Bailey's injury defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson said via the Denver Post that the 35-year-old cornerback looked good. That enthusiasm however might have been tempered Monday by the fact Bailey didn't practice.
