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.

Injury update for the Broncos: CB Chris Harris Jr. is being evaluated for a lower leg injury and is questionable to return.— Patrick Smyth (@psmyth12) December 2, 2018
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.
This would indicate X-rays did not go well. #9sports https://t.co/U767BoHHNf— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) December 2, 2018
