ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — A person with knowledge of the results tells The Associated Press that Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. is out for the rest of the playoffs after an MRI on Monday revealed a torn ACL in his left knee.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because coach John Fox hadn’t addressed the media yet.
Harris was injured in the third quarter of Denver’s 24-17 win over San Diego in the AFC Divisional round Sunday.
After he went out, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers staged a comeback from a 17-point deficit by targeting Harris’ rusty replacement, veteran Quentin Jammer.
The Broncos (14-3) could go with rookie Kayvon Webster against New England (13-4) in the AFC championship or they could move slot cornerback Champ Bailey outside.
