Chris Harris Jr. played a significant part in the Denver Broncos' push for the playoffs this season - but had to watch from the sidelines for the majority of the post-season after sustaining a knee injury against the San Diego Chargers.
The injury was revealed to be a 30% tear of his ACL and the player was placed on the injury list as the Broncos pushed for the Super Bowl.
But today the cornerback, who started fifteen games in the 2013-14 season, posted a picture from his Instagram account announcing that he was on the road to recovery:
"Successful Surgery thanks to Dr. Andrews.
Ready to start grinding for this season," the player told his followers.
Harris Jr. went undrafted in 2011 but has since proved to be a key part of the Broncos defense, competing 65 tackles last season complimented by three interceptions.
The Kansas graduate was also named Denver Broncos Breakout Player of the year, and Defensive Player of the year in 2011, and has two touchdowns to his name during his pro career.
