Chris Harris Jr. reportedly fractured his fibula

Chris Harris Jr. has gone to the locker room with a lower leg injury and has been ruled out for the game.

UPDATE: Chris Harris Jr. has reportedly fractured his fibula and will likely be done for the season. The recovery time is 4-6 weeks and would need physical therapy to repair. This late in the season means he wouldn’t be ready to return until near Super Bowl time.

This is a huge loss for the Broncos defense.

Original Story: Midway through the first quarter in the game between the Denver Broncos and Cincinnati Bengals, Chris Harris Jr. suffered a leg injury while tackling A.J. Green. He was not able to put any weight on his leg and ultimately was carted off to the locker room.

David J. Chao noted on Twitter that Harris heading to the X-ray is likely to rule out a right fibula lower leg fracture.

In an ominous report, Harris has been ruled out in the game. It could mean the X-ray’s came back with some bad news.

We will update this story as we learn more.
