At least Champ is feeling good

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Naturally, all eyes today will be on Von Miller's right knee, which will undergo multiple tests, including an MRI.

While that situation will be all about hoping for the best, there's at least some good news regarding Champ Bailey's health.

Champ was limited to 35 snaps during yesterday's win at Houston, but said after the game that he felt good.

A lingering Lisfranc injury had permitted Bailey to play just 134 snaps prior to Sunday.

Denver might be in trouble if Miller is lost for the playoffs, but having Champ available would go a long way toward compensating for his absence.
