While the beginning of the season saw the Denver Broncos lose many key players, for the second week in a row, the team is getting healthier.
Cornerback Champ Bailey and defensive tackle Marcus Thomas returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday. It marks the second straight Wednesday the Broncos got a significant boost in their practice participants as linebacker D.J. Williams, defensive end Elvis Dumervil, running back Knowshon Moreno and receiver Brandon Lloyd all practiced last Wednesday after missing at least the previous game.
Bailey hasn’t practiced since injuring his hamstring in the season opener against the Oakland Raiders, and Thomas hasn’t practiced since suffering an injury in mid-August.
“You feel a little more comfortable in the fight when you have all your troops with you,” Head Coach John Fox said. “They were a welcome addition for sure.”
