The Denver Broncos expect to have both Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Champ Bailey when they take on the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13.

Rodgers-Cromartie suffered a shoulder injury at the end of the first half of Sunday night’s game against the New England Patriots. Officially he is listed to day-to-day but interim head coach Jack Del Rio is downplaying the injury.

“He had a chance to catch the ball and just banged his shoulder a bit,” Del Rio said, via ESPN. “I think he’s going to be fine.”

The Broncos could also have Champ Bailey back on the field. Bailey has appeared in just two games this season but is expected to practice in full and then play in Sunday’s game against the Chiefs.

Del Rio added that tight end Julius Thomas will practice this week and should play against the Chiefs as well.
