Broncos CB Champ Bailey ruled out for Thursday's kickoff game vs. Ravens

The Broncos already knew they would begin the season without Von Miller, their best pass-rusher. Now they also won't have their best cornerback. Champ Bailey @champbailey has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Ravens because of a sprained foot. Bailey suffered the injury in a preseason game back on Aug. 17, and he has been barely practiced since. He was in a walking boot until Saturday.

Fantasy Analysis:

Attention, Torrey Smith @TorreySmithWR and Joe Flacco @TeamFlacco owners. The Broncos' defensive backfield still looks pretty good with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie @oowe23 and Chris Harris @ChrisHarrisJr, a couple of very good corners. But it's difficult to replace a player like Bailey. I expect Smith and Flacco to test out the back end of that defense often tomorrow night.
