Champ Bailey continues to remain a question mark for the Denver Broncos. Just when will he come back from that foot injury? Bailey said that he feels better and better as the days pass. As for if he’ll suit up against the Cowboys?

“It’s up in the air,” Bailey said. “I don’t think I’ll make a decision today but I am progressing. I’m getting better, getting more confident about the things I can do on the field. That’s really what it’s all about.”

Being held up on the sidelines hasn’t been easy for Bailey, but the fact that the Broncos have been winning has softened the blow.

Speaking of the secondary, Tony Romo offered his take on the Broncos’ secondary during a conference call.

“They grab, they hold, they’ve almost put a lot of pressure on the refs – whether or not they’re going to call the game close or not. If they get called once or twice, that’s a good thing. But they’re all over guys as far as using the little tricks, I guess you could say, that good linebackers and good secondaries use when they’re playing man coverage.”

Romo may just be priming the refs here. Denver’s defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio offered this to Romo’s comments:

"“We work hard to get the opposition slowed down and do our best to compete…We just want to work the best we can to slow them down, play a complementary game, get the ball back for our offense and help our football team win.”"

If Romo has those thoughts in his head going into the game, and Denver’s secondary can play physical, then it’s easy to see Romo going back to his old ways and playing flustered.
