Cornerback Chris Harris cleared for limited practice

more good news on the injury front

Casey Barrett, Mile High Report

It was reported today by USA Today's Lindsay Jones that Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris visited with Dr. James Andrews to check on his ACL. Andrews cleared Harris to participate in limited practice. The Broncos haven't yet activated Harris off the PUP list just yet but it appears that he'll be activated off the PUP list sooner rather than later.

Harris is still recovering from an ACL injury he suffered during the playoff game against the San Diego Chargers, but it appears that Harris will be ready for week one of the regular season when the Denver Broncos host the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night Football.

Like with linebacker Von Miller and defensive Tackle Kevin Vickerson I expect the Broncos to be very cautious with Harris going forward. Probably only limiting him to individual drills early on, and no contact.

The Broncos plan to keep Von Miller away from contact until week three on the preseason at the earliest, so I would expect Harris to be on a similar timetable as Miller.

Harris is expected to be the Broncos starting right corner when healthy, and probably moving inside on nickel downs. With first round pick Bradley Roby struggling and looking lost in the early portions of camp, Harris will be a welcomed addition to an already very solid looking Denver Broncos defense.

It's good to see the Broncos getting all their key injured players back and healthy before the start of the preseason. Lets hope the good news on the injury front continues throughout camp and the preseason, and on through the regular season and playoffs

Go Broncos!
