KUSA - The Denver Broncos left on Friday afternoon for New York to get ready for Sunday's game against the Giants, but before the team left coach John Fox said Champ Bailey would not play this week.
The Broncos' veteran cornerback will miss his second consecutive game because of an injured foot.
Fox said Bailey did not have a setback and is "making great progress."
"He's being watched over by our medical staff and he's getting closer," Fox said Friday morning before the team left the headquarters for the airport.
Bailey did not play in the season opener Sept. 5 against Baltimore.
Fox said the secondary "played well. I mean, well enough to win" against the Ravens without Bailey.
Tight end Joel Dreessen also will not play Sunday. Running back C.J. Anderson (knee) is listed as doubtful, and linebacker Wesley Woodyard (ankle) and receiver Eric Decker (shoulder) are probable.
