When the Broncos’ defense takes the field at the Georgia Dome today, it will be doing so without four defensive starters.
The Broncos deactivated CB Champ Bailey, FS Marlon McCree, LB D.J. Williams and LB Nate Webster as its 29th-ranked defense faces the Falcons. CB Karl Paymah is expected to continue starting in place of Bailey, and Calvin Lowry will start for McCree. Rookie Wesley Woodyard will start for Williams.
