The Broncos opened up preparations for Sunday's game against the New York Giants with a few players missing from practice on Monday morning.

Cornerback Champ Bailey did not participate in practice recovering from a foot sprain. He didn't even take part in stretching activities at the start of the session. Along with Bailey's absence were linebacker Wesley Woodyard who suffered an injured ankle in the season opener when Baltimore wide receiver Brandon Stokley dove into his legs to get to the football that Danny Trevathan dropped before crossing the goal line on his interception return.

Also missing from practice were wide receiver Trindon Holliday and safety Omar Bolden.

Meanwhile running back C.J. Anderson — a training-camp sensation — was out on the field going through some light running and agility drills. He suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament in practice nearly a month ago. He was out on the field going through those drills with tight end Joel Dreessen.
