ENGLEWOOD, Colo. –On the heels of losing All-Pro left tackle Ryan Clady to the season-ending injured reserve list, the Broncos enjoyed some positive developments on the injury front Thursday.
All 53 members of the active roster took part in Thursday's practice, with all but three being full participants.
Champ Bailey (foot) and Joel Dreessen (knee) both practiced for the first time since the regular season began – they were limited in Thursday's session.
Guard Chris Kuper (ankle) and running back C.J. Anderson (knee) both had full participation for the first time in the 2013 campaign. Both had been limited all of last week, which was Anderson's first week back on the practice field since he suffered a knee injury during the final training camp practice back in August.
Bailey injured his foot in Denver's preseason game at Seattle on Aug. 17 and hasn't practiced since.
"He was limited, we're going to ease him back," Fox said of having his Pro Bowl cornerback on the field. "But it is good to have him back out there. He's been staying on top of it mentally and he is a team captain for a reason. The guy is an outstanding leader. We'll kind of see day-to-day how it goes and even as early as this Monday night (he could be back)."
