Nicki Jhabvala from the Denver Post is reporting that Ryan Harris will start at left tackle for the Broncos this Sunday, Harris is currently the starting right tackle on the depth chart. That leaves a gap at right tackle where second year tackle Michael Schofield will start at right tackle.

Harris is coming off his best game of the season at right tackle, while Schofield has yet to crack a starting lineup, but has seen sporadic action so far this season.

Harris was brought in during training camp in what some viewed as an admission that Schofield was not quite up to snuff yet at right tackle.

This week the Broncos signed tackles Tyler Polumbus and Antonio Johnson which seemed to be an early indicator that starting left tackle Ty Sambrailo may not be able to participate Sunday at home against the Minnesota Vikings.

And this report seems to be confirmed:

This will be Schofield's first start as an NFL player.
