DENVER (AP) — Champ Bailey is missing his third consecutive game because of an injured left foot.
Denver’s star cornerback is deactivated for the Broncos’ game against the Oakland Raiders on Monday night.
Bailey returned to practice last week for the first time since getting hurt Aug. 17 at Seattle, but wasn’t backpedalling very well during warm-ups.
This marks the second time in three seasons Bailey has missed three straight games.
Strongside linebacker Sio Moore is among the inactive Raiders. He was in an auto accident over the weekend and sustained a concussion.
Other inactives include: Zac Dysert, C.J. Anderson, Quentin Jammer, Chris Kuper, Winston Justice and Joel Dreessen for Denver; Matt McGloin, Tyvon Branch, Menelik Watson, Antoine McClain, Lucas Nix and Juron Criner for Oakland.
