Not bad for a return to work, although Bailey as a 12-time Pro Bowler has set a higher standard. Bailey missed the first five games with a left foot injury, returned to play against Jacksonville and Indianapolis, then aggravated his injury and missed the next four games before returning against the Chiefs.
"I think anytime a player misses playing time, a considerable amount of playing time, regardless of who you are, it takes a minute to get back and to play against the best football players on the planet," Fox said.

That is way more than I thought, and probably more than most of us thought because his name was called only early after a couple of plays. I don't know for sure, but it is possible that he had an adequate and quiet game the rest of the way. A quiet game for a cb is usually a good thing. Just saying.
Can we get someone with all-22 to verify his total game? I think we need a different perspective on this than just what we see on TV coverage.
