The Broncos have opened extension talks with CB Chris Harris.

Harris is having a breakout season opposite Aqib Talib, and currently grades out as PFF's No. 3 overall corner. It's possible he could target a deal similar to the four-year, $39 million the Packers gave Sam Shields this offseason. Fully recovered from last year's torn ACL, Harris ranks third in the league in pass deflections (11) and opponent quarterback rating (41.4). 25-year-old Harris is making $2.19 million in the final year of his contract.

Broncos activated CB Chris Harris (knee) from the active/PUP list.

Harris was cleared by Dr. James Andrews on Monday, and passed his Broncos physical on Tuesday. Coming off a strong season for the AFC champions, Harris will man the slot, barring a setback.

Broncos CB Chris Harris (knee, PUP) has been cleared for limited practice.

He got the go-ahead from Dr. James Andrews on Monday. It may be a while before Harris is officially activated, but he remains on track to man the slot in Week 1.

Broncos placed CB Chris Harris (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Harris is about six months removed from partially tearing his ACL, and estimated he was at 80-85 percent health two weeks ago. He's scheduled to meet with Dr. James Andrews in the near future. Harris is expected to return at some point during camp and be ready to roll for Week 1. Harris will man the slot.

Broncos CB Chris Harris will see Dr. James Andrews at the end of July to assess his progress in recovering from a partial ACL tear.

Harris says he is about 80 or 85 percent healthy right now. He will likely begin training camp on the PUP list, but he is on track to participate in some camp activities and should be good to go by Week 1.
Sat, Jul 12, 2014 11:52:00 AM's Andrew Mason says "it would be no surprise" if CB Chris Harris opens up camp on the PUP list.

The lack of surprise is because Harris will be barely six months removed from a partial tear in his ACL when Broncos camp opens. No matter how well his recovery went, the beginning of training camp was always an optimistic timetable. Harris does look on track to participate in at least some camp activities and should be good to go by Week 1.

Broncos CB Chris Harris (ACL surgery) says he's at about 85 percent right now.

Harris is merely five months removed from surgery, but his prognosis is more optimistic than standard timelines because he only suffered a partial ACL tear during the Divisional Round win over the Chargers. He appears on track for Week 1. With Aqib Talib, T.J. Ward and first-round rookie Brandon Roby added to the mix this offseason, this Broncos secondary is brimming with talent.

Broncos CB Chris Harris (ACL surgery) "could return as soon as the third preseason game," according to the Denver Post.

Harris "sees no reason" he won't be ready for Week 1. He still has some hope of returning at the start of training camp. Harris tore his left ACL last January. Denver should open the year with Harris at slot corner, and Aqib Talib and Brandon Roby outside. The safeties are Rahim Moore and T.J. Ward.

Broncos CB Chris Harris (ACL) hopes to be ready for the start of training camp.

Harris is just four months removed from partially tearing his left ACL in the Divisional Round, but is optimistic he'll be ready. "I’m feeling great, I'll be ready," Harris said. "I’m building my confidence because I wasn’t down too long. I’m able to test things, I just feel confident about what’s going to happen." Harris will man the slot if he's ready for Week 1.

Broncos re-signed restricted free agent CB Chris Harris to a one-year, $2.187 million contract.

The Broncos tendered Harris at the second-round level. He tore his ACL in the Divisional Round and is going to be in a race to be ready for training camp. Harris is expected to start opposite Aqib Talib now that the Broncos are without Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Champ Bailey. Harris will cover the slot in sub-packages. Tony Carter is lightly penciled in as the No. 3 corner.

Broncos extended restricted free agent CB Chris Harris a second-round tender.

He may have gotten a first-round tender if he wasn't coming off a torn ACL. Harris claims he's ahead of schedule after escaping with a "partial" tear, and has quietly emerged as one of the NFL's premier slot corners. He'll be in the mix to start for the Champ Bailey-less Broncos in 2014. If Harris makes a smooth recovery, he'll be a hot 2015 free-agent item.
Fri, Mar 7, 2014 01:15:00 PM

Broncos CB Chris Harris says he's "doing great" and is ahead of schedule in his recovery from ACL surgery.

Harris is only dealing with a partial tear of his ACL and is already off crutches. He remains questionable to be cleared for training camp, but should be ready for Week 1. A restricted free agent, Harris is expected to receive a second-round tender from the Broncos.

Broncos restricted free agent CB Chris Harris (ACL surgery) is likely to receive a second-round tender.

Harris would've gotten a first-round tender if not for the ACL injury he suffered in the Divisional Round. Even though his injury turned out to be less severe than once feared, the second-round draft pick compensation makes it unlikely any team takes a run at Denver's talented slot cornerback.

Surgery revealed that Broncos RFA Chris Harris only suffered a partial tear of his ACL.

Harris sustained no damage to his LCL, MCL or cartilage. In short, it's a best-case scenario for a Denver's top corner and gives him an excellent chance to be ready for Week 1. Still, the injury is expected to prevent Harris from landing a long-term extension from the Broncos. He'll almost certainly play out 2014 on a one-year franchise tender and then look to cash in.
