Champ Bailey on crutches after Broncos game


Defensive tackle Derek Wolfe’s injury grabbed a bit more attention since it involved being taken from the field in an ambulance, but the positive early news on his condition means that it might not wind up as the most significant injury suffered by a Bronco on Saturday night.

That honor could wind up going to the foot injury suffered by Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey. Bailey was on crutches and his left foot was in a boot as the Broncos left Seattle after feeling something strain on the bottom of his foot during the game.

“I wish I could describe it,” Bailey said, via Mike Klis of the Denver Post. “We’ll see.”

Any time a player has pain in his foot, the great fear is that it is a Lisfranc injury. They have ruined seasons for many players and they can often be discovered on MRIs after x-rays turn up nothing suspect.

Bailey’s x-rays were negative, but he’ll be going for an MRI on Sunday, so there will likely be some breath holding going on in Denver until the results of that test are known.
