Champ Bailey's foot injury is not a Lisfranc issue and he remains questionable for Week 1 of the regular season, according to Chris Mortensen on ESPN's NFL Insiders.
There was talk of Bailey's foot injury being serious this past weekend and he could miss several weeks, so Lisfranc being ruled out is an encouraging sign. The Broncos are having a rough day with ESPN also reporting that outside linebacker Von Miller could be suspended for six games and not the previously reported to be four games.
Fantasy impact: While Bailey isn't what he used to be at age 35, he's going to hurt the Broncos and their lack of depth in the secondary. Champ was ripped for giving up a TD to Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones in the AFC Playoffs last year and there's a chance this foot injury could linger all year, and to make matters worse, they play the Ravens in Week 1.
Rounding out the remaining Broncos early schedule, they'll get the Giants, Raiders, Eagles, Cowboys and Jaguars. They were much better with Miller on the field, giving up 4.5 yards per play with him, and 5.1 without him.
The Broncos offense should score a lot of points, which makes their defense an even riskier play against all of those teams except the Raiders and Jaguars. A weaker defense could also make the Broncos more likely to score points, so there should be a mild upgrade to their skill positions.
