Chris Harris: seven interceptions in three seasons with Denver Broncos
Denver Broncos will be without cornerback Chris Harris for the remainder of their play-off run due to a torn ACL in his left knee.
He sustained the injury during third quarter of the Broncos' 24-17 win over San Diego Chargers, a result that set up an AFC title showdown against New England Patriots in Denver on Sunday.
Harris, who was picked up by the Broncos in 2011 after going undrafted out of college the previous year, made 65 tackles and three interceptions this season.
Veteran Quentin Jammer replaced Harris against the Chargers and he and inside cornerback Champ Bailey will be tasked with filling the void in Denver's backfield.
The Broncos' defence had already lost linebacker Von Miller to a similar knee injury on December 22 in a regular-season win at Houston.
