Broncos cornerback Chris Harris is ready to return to action after sitting out the team’s Week 2 trip to Atlanta with an ankle injury.
“He had a good week of practice and we feel comfortable about his status for the game,” Head Coach John Fox said.
Harris is looking forward to getting back on the field after experiencing an unfortunate career first Monday night in Atlanta.
“That’s the first game I ever missed, ever, in my career playing sports,” Harris said. “It’s just hard to watch my teammates that we fight with and grind with every day go out there and play.”
But Harris agreed with the decision, noting that it’s a long season with 14 more games to play in the regular-season slate.
When asked whether he feels 100 percent healthy, Harris said simply: “I’m ready to play.”
For the Broncos, only guard Chris Kuper (forearm) is listed as out for Sunday’s game against the Texans. Harris (ankle), safety Quinton Carter (knee), linebacker Von Miller (hip), tight end Joel Dreessen (ribs), cornerback Tracy Porter (neck) and wide receiver Brandon Stokley (shoulder) are all probable for the contest.
For Houston, inside linebacker Tim Dobbins (hamstring) is questionable to suit up on Sunday. Eleven other players -— outside linebacker Bryan Braman (hamstring), outside linebacker Brooks Reed (hip), defensive end Antonio Smith (ankle), outside linebacker Connor Barwin (elbow), guard Brandon Brooks (thumb), guard Antoine Caldwell (ankle), inside linebacker Brian Cushing (ribs), cornerback Jonathan Joseph (groin), cornerback Brice McBain (knee), center Chris Myers (neck), and outside linebacker Jesse Nading (knee) — are listed as probable.
