Champ Bailey said after practice today that he is taking his injury day-by-day. Bailey injured his groin against the New England Patriots, and he hasn’t seen any game action since.
There was hope he could play last week, but he sat out the game. He participated on a limited basis in yesterday and today’s practice, so his status for this week is still up in the air.
“This thing is a tricky injury — it is something I have never dealt with,” Bailey said. “What I am trying to do is trying to work my way back in there as quick as I can, but trying to be patient at the same time.”
He said he sometimes feels like he’s not being accountable by not playing, but everything’s been made easier by the fact that the team has found a way to win twice in his absence.
“That is the good thing about all the games that I have missed in my career — we have only lost one,” he said. “That is great. Young guys get a chance to step up.”
