ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Chris Harris never believed he wasn't supposed to be playing a pivotal role in the Denver Broncos secondary.
It didn't matter that it was training camp, Harris was an undrafted free rookie agent out of the University of Kansas and had no offseason to impress a new coaching staff. Harris felt he
deserved more than the minimal practice repetitions he'd been getting.
Harris is starting to get his fill now, notching two key pass-breakups in an overtime victory in Miami last Sunday. That performance has potentially earned him a larger role this weekend
when Denver (2-4) hosts the pass-happy Detroit Lions (5-2).
Harris' emergence comes within a defensive backfield that has been in a state of flux.
