Bailey says he will play on Sunday

Denver Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey participated fully in practice for the second straight day and says he will play on Sunday against the San Diego Chargers.

Bailey missed the last three games due to a hamstring injury he suffered against the Oakland Raiders in Week 1 and hadn't participated in practice till this week.

However, the secondary still has plenty of injury concerns. Cornerback Jonathan Wilhite (illness), and starting safeties Brian Dawkins (ankle) and Rahim Moore (illness) were unable to take the practice field on Thursday.

Others who missed practice on Thursday include wide receivers Eddie Royal (groin) and Demaryius Thomas (finger) and tight end Julius Thomas (ankle).
