Injury Report: Bailey to play; Woodyard, Ayers doubtful

Denver's secondary will finally be intact Sunday, as Champ Bailey (foot) is set to make his season debut and will start against Jacksonville. Chris Harris (concussion) will also play, after having been cleared from his concussion and practiced in full on Friday. Both are listed as probable, along with seven others.

Wesley Woodyard (neck) and Robert Ayers (shoulder) are doubtful; Paris Lenon is slated to start in Woodyard's place, while Malik Jackson and Sly Williams figure to play more in Ayers's absence.

For Jacksonville, five players have been ruled out, and another quintet is probable. QB Blaine Gabbert had been ruled out earlier in the week; he's joined by TE Marcedes Lewis, CB Dwayne Gratz, WR Stephen Burton, and DT Jeremy Mincey.

Wideouts Cecil Shorts and Mike Brown, LB Geno Hayes, DT Sen'Derrick Marks, and DT Roy Miller were each limited Friday but listed as probable.

Even with Shorts and Brown expected to play, head coach Gus Bradley says WR Denard Robinson will be active, as Jacksonville presumably realizes it will need lots of offensive weapons to not get run out of SAF@MH.
