Injury Report: Fox to work sideline on Sunday

Citing his recovery from heart surgery and the desire to better communicate with his players, John Fox announced Friday that he would coach Sunday's game against Tennessee from the Denver sideline, rather than up in the coaches' booth.

As for the players, Derek Wolfe was ruled out, as expected, while Champ Bailey and Trindon Holliday are listed as questionable. This, despite Bailey having been a full practice participant on Thursday and Friday; Holliday made a limited return on Friday after having sat out Wednesday and Thursday.

Champ was originally listed as probable on Friday, but was downgraded later in the day.

Demaryius Thomas was upgraded to a full participant on Friday and is probable, along with 12 other Broncos, including Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Julius Thomas, and Danny Trevathan.

Both Thomases are expected to play, as is Knowshon Moreno, who is also listed as probable.

For Tennessee, TE Craig Stevens, T David Stewart, TE Delanie Walker, and WR Damian Williams are questionable, while four others are probable.

But there seems to be very little confidence that Walker, who is dealing with a concussion, will play on Sunday.
