Harris left Sunday’s win over the Chargers in the third quarter with that the team described as knee and ankle injuries. After Harris departed, San Diego mounted a comeback with 17 fourth-quarter points.

Quentin Jammer filled in for Harris on Sunday. The Broncos also could give veteran Champ Bailey more snaps at cornerback.

Harris, who joined the Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2011 out of Kansas, played more defensive snaps than any other Bronco this season and led the team with three interceptions. He becomes a restricted free agent after the season.
