DENVER (AP) - Champ Bailey is active for the first time this season, ready to provide some help for Denver's last-in-the-league pass defense when the Broncos face the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The cornerback hasn't played since spraining his left foot in the second preseason game at Seattle on Aug. 17. With Bailey active, cornerback Tony Carter was a healthy scratch for the Broncos (5-0) on Sunday.
Two Denver defensive starters were deactivated: middle linebacker Wesley Woodyard (shoulder stinger) and end Robert Ayers (shoulder). They'll be replaced by Paris Lenon and Malik Jackson, respectively.
Other Broncos inactives are Zac Dysert, C.J. Anderson, John Moffitt and Winston Justice.
Out for the Jaguars (0-5) are Blaine Gabbert, Stephen Burton, Dwayne Gratz, Jacques McClendon, DeMarcus Love, Marcedes Lewis and Jeremy Mincey.
