Fears confirmed: Torn ACL for Broncos CB Chris Harris.— Lindsay Jones (@bylindsayhjones) January 13, 2014
Broncos CB Chris Harris suffered a torn ACL in yesterdays playoff game. This will be another big loss for the Denver Broncos defense that is already without Von Miller, Rahim Moore, Derek Wolfe and Kevin Vickerson.
Harris left in the third quarter of yesterday's game with leg and knee injuries. Veteran corner Quentin Jammer replaced Harris in the starting lineup, and was picked apart by Chargers QB Phillip Rivers. Chargers WR Keenan Allen burned Jammer on countless plays in the forth quarter. Harris held Allen to 1 catch for 19 yards before his injury. After, Harris left the game Allen went off for 6 catches, 142 yards, 2 touchdowns. Not good.
It will be interesting to see how the Broncos replace Harris in the lineup with Tom Brady coming to town sunday. Will Veteran Champ Bailey play outside once again? Will they put rookie Kayvon Webster outside? or will they go with the veteran Jammer?
What sucks even more about his injury is that this injury effects the 2014 season as well. The Broncos more then likely will start the 2014 season with both Chris Harris and Von Miller on the PUP, or at least limited.
Update: Harris' farewell
