The Denver Broncos’ defense passed its first test versus a depleted Baltimore Ravens aerial attack in the NFL opener. The secondary remains without its most accomplished player in a tougher matchup this week.
Coach John Fox has already ruled cornerback Champ Bailey out for Sunday’s game versus the New York Giants, the team announced on Friday.
Bailey suffered a sprained left foot during an Aug. 17 preseason game.
Bailey is without a timetable for a return after an Associate Press report last week suggested he would have a good chance to play against the Giants.
The Broncos will start Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Tony Carter, with Chris Harris entering in nickel packages.
