If Harris continues to test negative, he could be ready to play on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. This report comes on the heels of both John Elway and Broncos’ CEO Joe Ellis testing positive for COVID-19.
Harris, 29, is playing on a one year deal. He has been an integral part of the resurgent Broncos defense in 2020 that has kept games competitive. We’ll have to monitor Harris’ situation throughout the week and see if he can stack enough days of negatives to be able to play in Week 9.
The Broncos have designated offensive lineman Darrin Paulo as Practice Squad/COVID-19 and signed wide receiver Kendall Hinton to the practice squad as well.
