Harris (knee) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Harris only generated a total of 2.5 sacks in 11 appearances this season after collecting six over 16 outings in 2019. He did, however, produce a career-high 11 QB hits while continuing to disrupt passing lanes with seven-plus deflections for a second straight year. Harris hadn't missed a single game over his first three years with the Broncos between 2017 and 2019. Now, he'll wrap up 2020 with five total absences as he heads to IR.
Broncos head coach Vic Fangio ruled Harris (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Harris will sit out the season finale after suffering the knee injury in the Broncos' Week 16 loss to the Chargers. While he took a step back statistically in 2020, Harris was still one of the Broncos' more productive defensive lineman over his 11 appearances, contributing 32 tackles, 2.5 sacks and seven passes defensed. The Broncos are still waiting on more testing on Harris' knee injury before a determination is made on whether he'll require surgery, according to Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com.
Harris (knee) will not practice Wednesday, Kyle Newman of The Denver Post reports.
Coach Vic Fangio said that Harris suffered a knee injury during last weekend's loss to the Chargers, and that the issue's severity is still being determined. If Harris ends up ruled out for Week 17, Dre'Mont Jones could start versus the Raiders.
Harris (elbow) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
Harris was limited during the first two days of practice, but as evidenced by this news, he appears on track for Week 15. Harris has played at least half of defensive snaps in the past two games for Denver, so it's likely he'll continue his rotational role for Saturday's game against Buffalo.
Harris (illness) is expected to play Sunday at Kansas City but may be on a limited snap count, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
The 29-year-old tested positive for COVID-19 and hasn't seen the field since Week 8, so he may need a little time to get back in game shape. Harris averaged over 60 percent of the defensive snaps in his previous three games but should see a lower snap share Sunday.
The Broncos activated Harris (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Harris will suit up this Sunday against the Chiefs for the first time since Week 8. DeMarcus Walker and Dre'Mont Jones have served as the starting defensive ends with Harris out of the picture, both proving capable of holding down the edge moving forward. It's unclear whom Harris will replace upon return to the lineup.
Harris (illness) won't play Week 12 but could be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list next week, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
The 29-year-old tested positive for COVID-19 a couple weeks ago and is still working his way back. Harris won't be playing Sunday against the Saints, but he could return from the reserve/COVID-19 list for Week 13.
Harris (illness) appears to be trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's game against the Saints, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
Coach Vic Fangio said Wednesday that Harris has completed one day of physical testing and will need to pass "three or four more" before being allowed to resume practicing. As such, the veteran defensive ends appears likely to miss a fourth straight game while on the COVID-19 list.
Harris (illness) may be able to return from the reserve/COVID-19 list this week, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
The 29-year-old was originally deemed a high-risk close contact in early November before ultimately testing positive for the virus, and he's been sidelined the past three games as a result. Dre'Mont Jones should continue to have an increased role if Harris is unable to play Week 12.
Harris (illness) won't play in Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Harris will miss a third straight game, as he was originally deemed a high-risk close contact before testing positive last week. Dre'Mont Jones and DeShawn Williams are the expected starting defensive ends until Harris returns.
Harris (illness) tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday, Benjamin Allbright of KOA NewsRadio 850 AM & 94.1 FM reports.
Harris already resided on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but he'd previously been testing negative. Now that he's tested positive, however, he'll be required to miss at least another 10 days. Harris is currently asymptomatic.
Coach Vic Fangio said Harris should be cleared from the reserve/COVID-19 list by Wednesday's practice, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Harris was placed on the list because he was considered a close contact to an infected person, but the 29-year-old defensive end has continued to test negative and should return to action this week. He's enjoyed a solid season so far, recording 23 tackles, 2.5 sacks and three pass breakups through seven games.
Harris (undisclosed) won't be cleared to return from the reserve/COVID-19 list in time for Sunday's game in Atlanta, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.
The 29-year-old has tested negative for the virus after coming in close contact with an infected individual outside of the team, but he won't be able to play Sunday regardless. Harris should be able to rejoin the active roster next week, assuming he continues to test negative. Dre'Mont Jones and DeMarcus Walker should see increased roles during his absence.
Harris (illness) confirmed Thursday that he has been testing negative for COVID-19 and is asymptomatic, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Harris will have to remain asymptomatic and test negative on five consecutive occasions before being eligible to suit up for a game, so his status for Sunday's contest in Atlanta remains murky. Dre'Mont Jones stands to be the primary beneficiary of increased snaps if Harris misses time, and DeMarcus Walker could also see a larger role.
Harris was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Jon Heath of USA Today reports.
Harris is considered a close contact to an infected person, so he'll remain on the COVID-19 list until he clears the necessary protocols. It's unclear if Harris will be able to pass the protocols in time for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Dre'Mont Jones, and to a lesser extent DeMarcus Walker, would see increases in usage if Harris does indeed sit out.
Harris (wrist) is back on the field for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports.
Harris' presence is a much-needed boost for Denver's defensive front, given that Mike Purcell (foot) has already been ruled out. He'll slot back into his usual starting role at defensive end.
Harris is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Chiefs due to a wrist injury, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
As long as Harris is sidelined, Dre'Mont Jones will be a candidate to handle increased defensive snaps. Fellow starting defensive lineman Mike Purcell (foot) has already been ruled out to return Sunday.
Harris (neck/quadriceps) was listed as a full participant in Tuesday's practice, putting him on track to suit up Thursday against the Jets, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.
Harris was one of a few regulars who popped up on the injury report Monday only to bounce back with a full practice Tuesday, suggesting Monday's missed practice was precautionary. Coming off a two-sack performance against the Buccaneers in Week 3, Harris will be looking forward to wreaking havoc on a Jets offense that has looked discombobulated all season.
Harris (neck/quadriceps) is listed as a non-participant on Monday's practice estimate, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.
Harris is coming off a two-sack performance in this past Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers, and prior to the injuries popping up, he was expected to have increased duties in Week 3 following news that Jurrell Casey (torn biceps) is likely out for the season. The Broncos only have two healthy DEs at this time -- DeShawn Williams and rookie third-rounder McTelvin Agim. Harris will look to recover quickly for Thursday's road game versus the Jets.
Harris is likely to join Jurrell Casey and either Dre'Mont Jones or Mike Purcell in the starting lineup, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.
Harris' return, and at a discounted rate, is a bit of a shock considering his six sacks and nine passes defensed -- a league high for defensive linemen -- in 2019. He'll return to a lineup that has lost veteran Derek Wolfe and replaced him with Casey, a perennial Pro Bowler. Klis floats the idea of starting Harris at, presumably, nose tackle between Casey and Jones. That seems unrealistic considering how the Broncos were gashed by the run early last season with the undersized Harris at nose tackle. The most likely scenario at this juncture is Casey and Harris on either side of Purcell, with Jones spelling both Casey and Harris with relative frequency, potentially leading to fewer snaps in 2020 than Harris enjoyed in 2019.
