Harris' shoulder is back to full health, Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post reports. Harris played through a deep tissue bruise and was less than 100 percent in both the AFC championship game and the Super Bowl. He has since confirmed that he's completely recovered from the injury, and it will not limit him in offseason training or into training camp, where Harris is sure to start at corner, along with Aqib Talib.
Harris recorded 58 tackles, two forced fumbles, two interceptions, six passes defended and a touchdown in 2015. He added 15 tackles and two passes defended in the playoffs. Playing opposite Aqib Talib or in the slot, Harris often drew the opposition's speediest or shiftiest receiver and performed well with the exception of Week 15's meltdown against Antonio Brown. Harris' finest moments included scoring Denver's lone touchdown in Week 5's win over Oakland and helping to hold Julian Edelman to 53 yards in the AFC Championship Game. Like Talib, Harris didn't record a pick following Denver's Week 7 bye, a concern to fantasy owners, but he still offers plenty of value in 2016 as part of one of the league's best secondaries.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Harris will play through his shoulder injury Sunday against the Patriots. Per the report, Harris is dealing with a deep-tissue shoulder bruise. While the issue -- which is described as "not insignificant" -- is not expected to require offseason surgery, it's the sort of ailment that causes Harris pain while engaging in such daily activities as brushing his teeth. In any case, Harris' availability -- albeit at less than full strength -- will be a plus for the Broncos defense on Sunday, as the team's secondary tries to contain New England's Tom Brady-led offense.
Harris (shoulder) is considered probable ahead of Sunday's AFC Championship game versus the Patriots, The Denver Post reports. Harris has battled through an injured shoulder lately, and appears poised to do the same in Sunday's hugely important contest. That being said, if Harris is limited at all Sunday, fellow cornerback Bradley Roby's hip injury suffered in practice Friday creates another unwanted concern for the Broncos' secondary, so their collective health may be worthwhile to monitor this weekend.
Harris (shoulder) is a game-time decision for Sunday's AFC Championship game according to GM John Elway, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Harris, one of the biggest staples for the Broncos' defense, has been dealing with a shoulder issue as of late, clearly playing through pain in the AFC Divisional round win over the Steelers. If he is held out of the Championship Game, look for Bradley Roby to get the start.
