Harris produced 49 tackles, one sack and 10 pass breakups -- including three interceptions with one touchdown -- over 12 games in 2018. It was a disappointing year for the Broncos defense, but Harris remained a star before a broken leg ended his season Week 13. In fact, the three-time Pro Bowler was on pace to set career highs in both tackles and interceptions prior to going down. The 29-year-old was medically cleared before the season ended and shouldn't be limited in any way during the team's first offseason under new head coach Vic Fangio, who coordinated the league's top scoring defense with Chicago in 2018.
Harris (lower leg) was medically cleared Monday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports. Harris has now been officially cleared after sustaining a broken leg during a Dec. 2 win over the Bengals. The star slot cornerback's quick recovery would have allowed him to return to the field if Denver had managed to secure a playoff berth. However, with the Broncos' 2018 season over, Harris will instead begin preparations for offseason workouts.
Harris (lower leg) said Friday that he's back to 100 percent health and has recovered from his broken leg, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports. Harris indicated that his leg is pain-free, and that he's fully recovered from the fracture sustained during a Dec. 2 win over the Bengals. Had the Broncos secured a playoff spot, the star slot cornerback would likely have recovered in time to retake the field. However, Harris will instead target a 2019 return. It does not appear that the 29-year-old's recovery will impact his availability for offseason workouts.
Harris (lower leg) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports. Harris was initially targeting a Week 17 return after suffering a broken leg during a Dec. 2 win over the Bengals, but his limited progress since that time prompted the Broncos to shut him down for good. The star slot cornerback will now turn his attention toward getting healthy for the 2019 season.
Harris (leg) is unlikely to return this season, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. Harris was hoping to play in Week 17, but the team has no need to rush him back after being eliminated from playoff contention with a loss to the Browns on Sunday. He'll look to return at full strength for the 2019 season.
