Harris, recently released by Cincinnati, has been added to Denver's 53-man roster, Troy Renck of ABC 7 Denver reports.
The Broncos' brass must have really loved the cornerback class of 2018. In addition to its own 2018 third-round pick, Isaac Yiadom, Denver has added Patriots second-round pick Duke Dawson and Bengals fifth-rounder Harris from that same crop in recent days. Harris, who played collegiately at Illinois State, ran an impressive 4.43 40-yard dash at the combine at 205 pounds and and recorded one tackle over three games as a rookie. He added 11 tackles and a forced fumble on a special-teams hit this preseason. Harris figures to contribute mostly on special teams early on while offering Denver another young, hard-hitting corner to groom should Chris Harris Jr. and/or De'Vante Bausby depart next offseason.
Harris (knee) was officially activated from the Bengals' injured reserve list Wednesday.
Harris was designated to return in mid-November and has done enough to squeak into the 21-day window for activation. He will provide some depth at the cornerback position and could serve as a contributor on special teams.
Harris (knee) was designated to return from the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, opening a 21-day window for the Bengals to activate him to the 53-man roster.
Harris will be able to practice with the team for three weeks without being counted against the roster limit, during which time the Bengals will decide whether to return him to the 53-man roster or allow him to remain on IR for the rest of the season. The rookie was initially placed on IR on Sept. 3 and will serve a depth role in Cincinnati's secondary if he returns to the active roster.
Harris (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.
Harris missed the final two games of the preseason due to a knee injury after recording an impressive six tackles, including one for loss, and forcing a fumble in the Bengals' preseason opener against the Bears.
Harris missed Sunday's game against the Bills with a knee injury.
Harris, a fifth-round rookie out of Illinois State, will hope to get healthy in time for the Bengals' final preseason game against the Colts on Thursday. As long as he is out, expect C.J. Goodwin and Tony McRae to provide depth for the Bengals at cornerback.
Harris (undisclosed) passed his physical and has been cleared to practice.
The Bengals' fifth-round pick in this year's draft, Harris is looking to secure a depth or backup role in the secondary. The injury that sidelined him the past few days remains unclear, but it isn't expected to hinder him going forward.
