At his postgame press conference Sunday, Broncos coach John Fox said he didn’t have an update on the health of cornerback Chris Harris, who suffered knee and ankle injuries in Denver’s divisional-round victory vs. San Diego.

Harris, who started at left cornerback vs. San Diego, was the Broncos’ “only and most significant injury” in victory, Fox said.

According to Lindsey Jones of USA Today, Harris is slated to have an MRI on his knee on Monday.

The 24-year-old Harris is one of the Broncos’ key players in the secondary. According to Pro Football Focus, Harris played a team-high 1,059 regular-season snaps for Denver, defending 13 passes and hauling in three interceptions in 16 games (15 starts).

Champ Bailey and Quentin Jammer are listed as the next two options at left cornerback on the Broncos’ depth chart. The Broncos also have Kayvon Webster and Tony Carter in reserve at cornerback. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie is the starter at right cornerback.
