ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. is out for the rest of the playoffs after an MRI on Monday revealed a torn ACL in his left knee.
Coach John Fox said "there's no doubt he's one of our better performers on defense throughout this season, but ... we've lost some pretty good performers throughout the season and this team's been resilient."
Harris was injured in the third quarter of Denver's 24-17 win over San Diego in the AFC Divisional round Sunday.
With Harris out, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers brought San Diego back from a 17-0 deficit largely by targeting his rusty replacement, Quentin Jammer.
Fox wouldn't say if Jammer will start against New England in the AFC championship.
