ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Champ Bailey's return didn't do the trick. Neither did Von Miller's. Maybe Wesley Woodyard's comeback will revive Denver's defense.
The Broncos (6-1) plan to welcome back their middle linebacker and co-captain Sunday when they face the Washington Redskins (2-4).
Woodyard went out with a shoulder stinger in the first half against Dallas earlier this month and in the 10 quarters since, the Broncos have surrendered a whopping 86 points - more than AFC West rival Kansas City (81) has allowed all season.
Woodyard said his injury is "something that I'm going to have to stay on top of the whole season, but I feel good and I feel healthy."
