Denver Broncos star dealt ACL injury blow

Denver Broncos star Chris Harris tore his anterior cruciate ligament in the third quarter of Sunday's 24-17 win against the San Diego Chargers, reports

The 24-year-old cornerback's absence will come as a huge blow to head coach John Fox, particularly as his Broncos side prepare to face Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

His replacement, Quentin Jammer, struggled to cope as the Chargers mounted a late fightback, and it will provide the Colorado-based franchise with food for thought, as they consider moving veteran Champ Bailey back outside, in an attempt to counteract Brady.

Harris is one of the most valuable defenders in the NFL, but will now miss the remainder of the postseason, after joining fellow Broncos cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on the treatment table.

Having started 15 regular-season games, and played more defensive snaps than any other Bronco, Harris will be notable by his absence. But, after an MRI scan confirmed on Monday morning, pre-rehab before surgery in a few weeks, is the only possible course of treatment.
