Broncos CB Bailey misses third game of career with thigh injury
Bailey was injured two weeks ago against San Diego and missed the second half of a 41-3 loss. The bye week wasn't enough time for Bailey to heal. The Broncos still beat the Steelers 31-28 on Jason Elam's last-second field goal.
It was the first time Bailey missed a game since he was inactive for two games in 2005 with a pulled hamstring. Cornerback Domonique Foxworth took his place in the starting lineup.
Denver defensive end Simeon Rice was deactivated for the second straight game. Rice, signed just before the start of the regular season, has six tackles this season as he recovers from offseason shoulder surgery.
