Bailey lasted just five games into the 2016 season before landing on injured reserve with a torn right pectoral that required six months of rehab. He returns to find himself in a competition for a starting defensive end job with Rakeem Nunez-Roches, Chris Jones and 2017 second-rounder Tanoh Kpassagnon.
Bailey played in just five games due to his torn muscle, but he may be able to return at some point during offseason workouts. He'll figure to be a backup along the defensive line when healthy in 2017.
Bailey's injury was originally thought to be a shoulder problem, but new information released Wednesday indicates the severe pectoral issue. Chris Jones figures to see an expanded role on the defensive line with Bailey out.
Updating a previous note, Bailey (shoulder) was placed on the IR on Tuesday.
As suspected, Bailey's season comes to an end after suffering a shoulder injury in Sunday's win over the Raiders. The team added defensive lineman Rakeem Nunez-Roches to the active roster as a result of the injury. Look for rookie Chris Jones to also see an increase in action.
Bailey (shoulder) is in danger of missing the remainder of the season due to a shoulder injury he suffered in Sunday's win over the Raiders, Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.
It isn't looking good for the defensive end, who was forced to exit Sunday's win after logging only 12 snaps. Look for more details to emerge as the week continues, with Dontari Poe, Jaye Howard, and rookie Chris Jones all expected to see increased reps in Bailey's absence. If he is ultimately ruled out for the season, the 27-year-old will end the year with seven tackles (five solo) in five games.
