Champ Bailey has no torn ligaments in left foot


The suddenly battered Denver Broncos have gotten a little good news.

Per Lindsay Jones of USA Today, an initial MRI on the left foot of cornerback Champ Bailey revealed no ligament damage.

Given that Bailey had both a walking boot and crutches after Saturday’s loss to the Seahawks, the preliminary determination that the ligaments is a pleasant surprise.

Bailey was one of five key Broncos injured on Saturday.   The others include defensive end Derek Wolfe (neck), linebacker Stewart Bradley (wrist), guard Louis Vasquez (knee), and receiver Wes Welker (ankle).

It’s unclear when Bailey will be ready to play.  The other first-string cornerback, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, sustained a high-ankle sprain early in training camp.  He’s back at practice, but he has yet to play in a preseason game.
