Travis Henry is out, but Champ Bailey is set to go for tonight’s game against the Green Bay Packers.
Bailey, who did not practice Friday after being limited in the Wednesday and Thursday sessions last week, was deemed ready to go and was moved to the active roster for the first time since straining a quadriceps muscle on Oct. 7 against San Diego.
Henry, meanwhile, will miss his first game since joining the Broncos with bruised ribs that he incurred in the Sunday Night Football win over the Pittsburgh Steelers eight days ago.
Selvin Young is expected to start in Henry’s place. Andre Hall, the third-teamer who was inactive last week, is in uniform tonight. Also of note in the backfield is the decision to deactivate fullback Mike Bell, leaving the Broncos with Young, Hall and Cecil Sapp as the only backs in uniform.
With Bailey ready, cornerback Jeff Shoate was deactivated.
Joining Henry, Bell and Shoate on the inactive list are safety Hamza Abdullah, defensive tackle Amon Gordon, offensive lineman Isaac Snell, wide receiver Javon Walker and defensive end Jarvis Moss.
Simeon Rice returns to the active 45-man roster after being down the last two weeks.
