Broncos RCB Chris Harris (shoulder) is active for the AFC Championship Game.

Harris will supposedly play his normal complement of snaps, but his injury is considered "not insignificant." He'll undoubtedly be tested early by surgeon Tom Brady. Inactive for the Broncos are QB Trevor Siemian, RB Juwan Thompson, CB Lorenzo Doss, CB Taurean Nixon, DT Darius Kilgo, C Sam Brenner and OG Robert Myers.

While Broncos RCB Chris Harris should see a normal workload in Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Patriots, his shoulder injury is "not insignificant," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Harris' deep-tissue shoulder bruise has required around the clock treatment. Rapsheet says Harris won't need surgery but the injury has caused him pain while brushing his teeth and playing with his two-year-old daughter. It's just another reminder that Harris is at far less than 100 percent and could be a liability against New England's dominant passing attack. Much of Bill Belichick's success in New England has come from his masterful ability to exploit other team's weaknesses. Look for Tom Brady to target the ailing Harris frequently in Sunday's AFC title game.

Coach Gary Kubiak said RCB Chris Harris (probable, shoulder) is ready for a full workload.

Harris clearly wasn't over his shoulder injury in the Divisional Round, but won't be limited after practicing fully throughout the week. The slot matchup between Harris and Julian Edelman is one of the top storylines of Sunday's AFC Championship.

Broncos RCB Chris Harris (shoulder) is listed as probable for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Patriots.

A full participant at practice this week, Harris should be available for Sunday's AFC Championship. Of course, his effectiveness remains a huge question mark. Harris looked like he was in agony against Pittsburgh last week and even coach Gary Kubiak admitted he's essentially playing with "one arm." Look for the Pats to test Harris early and often on Sunday.

Broncos GM John Elway considers RCB Chris Harris (left shoulder) a game-time decision for Sunday's AFC Championship Game.

Harris is dealing with a "severe" bone bruise in his twice-injured shoulder. Coach Gary Kubiak said he was playing with "one arm" in the Divisional Round. With everything on the line, we'd ultimately expect Harris to suit up against the Patriots, but he's probably not going to be in for a full complement of snaps.
Jan 21 - 2:45 PM

Broncos SCB Chris Harris aggravated his shoulder injury Sunday.

Harris is dealing with a severe bone bruise in his left shoulder which became aggravated after he made a tackle Sunday. Harris still played 75 percent of the defensive snaps, but he was clearly limited. Coach Gary Kubiak said Monday Harris was playing "with one arm in a lot of ways." Harris will likely continue to play through the injury, but he will need both arms functional with Julian Edelman coming to town.

The Denver Post's Troy Renk reports an MRI on SCB Chris Harris' shoulder came back clean.

Renck reports he should be good to go for the playoffs. Harris injured his shoulder tackling Chargers TE Antonio Gates in the first quarter of the Week 17 win. He finished the game, but he never regained feeling in the shoulder. Coach Gary Kubiak said Harris was "pretty sore" Monday, but he has two weeks to heal.

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 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

DenverBroncos.com'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.
