A new strategy will be employed with the return of Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey today against the Houston Texans. If all goes as planned, Bailey will only play in sub packages — the nickel and dime. Chris Harris and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will start as corners in the base defense. It’s possible Bailey could start, but only if the Broncos open in a sub package. A 12-time Pro Bowler, Bailey has been hobbled all season with a left foot injury that has caused him to miss 11 of the Broncos’ first 14 games. He has made two previous returns to the lineup this season, only to fall back to the inactive list. His first return was game 6 against Jacksonville in which he played 70 of 72 defensive snaps. He then played most of the first half in game 7 at Indianapolis before he aggravated his foot on the Lucas Oil Stadium artificial surface.
