Chargers' Jackson, Broncos' Bailey seem likely for Sunday

Nursing a hamstring injury, San Diego Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson fully practiced for the first time this week Friday and was listed as probable for Sunday's game at Denver on the team's injury report.

Jackson strained his hamstring during last Sunday's 26-16 victory over the Miami Dolphins. The Chargers believed it was caused by Jackson overcompensating for an abdominal injury he already had.

Chargers tight end Antonio Gates remained doubtful with a foot injury after not practicing at all this week.

Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey, who hasn't played since suffering a hamstring injury in the season opener, fully practiced for the third consecutive day and was listed as probable, though he said he will play.

"I'm playing," Bailey told the team's official website. "Period."

Broncos tight end Daniel Fells (knee) and safety Brian Dawkings were limited in practice and listed as questionable. Safety Rahim Moore (illness) was listed as probable after missing Thursday's practice but returning Friday.
