Broncos CB Chris Harris out with torn ACL
Cornerback Chris Harris will miss the rest of the Denver Broncos' playoff run with a torn ACL, according to USA Today's Lindsay Jones.
The team announced in the second half of the Broncos' divisional round win over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday that Harris would not return to the game with knee and ankle injuries. The third-year cornerback discovered the torn ACL after an MRI on Monday.
The Broncos' depth chart shows veterans Quentin Jammer and Champ Bailey as the likely replacements when the team takes on the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game on Sunday.
Fears confirmed: Torn ACL for Broncos CB Chris Harris.

Broncos CB Chris Harris is going in for MRI. Fear is the knee injury is serious. He's been the most consistent DB -- would be a huge loss. — Lindsay Jones (@bylindsayhjones) January 13, 2014
