Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey may not play tonight against the Patriots, as he continues to recover from a foot injury.
“I got a good week of practice in, feel pretty confident about going forward,” Bailey said. “I just need to make sure I’m all the way there, mentally and physically.”
But Bailey, who has played in only two games this season, is listed as questionable and said he won’t know until he gets on the field for pregame warmups if he’s ready to go.
“You just don’t want to say ‘I’m going’ or say ‘I’m not.’ It’s really just about getting on that turf, working out and seeing how it feels,” he said.
At age 35 and dealing with a nagging injury, Bailey may never be the same player he was in his prime. But whatever Bailey has left, the Broncos would love to get it on the field.
