Champ Bailey still not ready to return to action, absence is second longest of career

Champ Bailey still isn't ready to return to action. His troublesome left foot is keeping him out of the Denver Broncos' game against Philadelphia on Sunday.

Bailey hasn't played since getting hurt Aug. 17 in Seattle. His monthlong absence to start the season is the second longest of his 15-year career. He missed seven straight games with a hamstring injury in 2008.

With Bailey deactivated again, cornerback Quentin Jammer, who came to Denver this offseason after a decade in San Diego, is active for the first time all year. He supplants rookie defensive tackle Sylvester Williams, who played just eight snaps last week and is deactivated against the Eagles.

Among the Eagles' inactives is starting free safety Patrick Chung (shoulder).
