Are the Broncos vulnerable without Champ Bailey? A 12-time Pro Bowl selection, Broncos veteran cornerback Champ Bailey, pictured, was supposed to match up with Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith. Bailey has been ruled out, though, with a foot injury. Chris Harris will start in his place at left cornerback. It was Harris who returned an interception of a pass by Joe Flacco 98 yards for a touchdown last December when he read Flacco's eyes and jumped in front of his pass. Harris is a good player, but he's not in Bailey's league. The developing chemistry between Flacco and Smith could be on display Thursday night.
