Broncos coach John Fox called cornerback Chris Harris the “only and most significant” injured player after Sunday’s victory over the Chargers and the knee injury that knocked him out of the game sent him to an MRI machine on Monday morning.
The test has concluded and that Harris is at the team’s facility waiting for the results. According to Mike Klis of the Denver Post, the Broncos are preparing to get bad news.
Klis reports that there’s fear around the team that Harris will be out of the lineup against the Patriots in the AFC Championship Game, a loss that would leave them without another key defensive player. Linebacker Von Miller and defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson are both done for the season while there’s no sign that safety Rahim Moore or defensive end Derek Wolfe is ready to return to the lineup.
The Patriots find themselves in similar straits on that side of the ball after losing Vince Wilfork, Jarod Mayo and Brandon Spikes, which could bode well for the offenses come next Sunday.
