Cornerback Champ Bailey was able to participate in his first padded practice during the regular season on Thursday.

Bailey missed the first two games of the regular season with a foot injury. He's hoping to make his 2013 season debut by playing against the Raiders on Monday.

The Broncos have already received some solid cornerback play from Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Tony Carter. If Bailey returns this week, it will only strengthen the unit.
