As a result of the New England Patriots win over the Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. will be heading to the Pro Bowl.
Despite the season ending injury to Chris Harris Jr., the veteran cornerback will get to play one more game before the Super Bowl champion is crowned.
Because the New England Patriots defeated the Kansas City Chiefs, Patriots cornerback Stephon Gillmore will not be able to participate in the NFL’s version of the all star game. So, Chris Harris Jr. will step in and take his place.
This marks Chris Harris Jr.’s fourth Pro Bowl in his career. I am a bit surprised that he has not gone to more of them. But alas, he will be going in 2019. He mentioned that he could play in the game if he was asked since he was a first alternative. Had the Denver Broncos made the playoffs, Harris Jr. was healthy enough to have played in the game.
And we noticed how much of a difference he made in the secondary. Once he was gone, we’ve seen the secondary struggle. Not having another solid cornerback did not help the Denver Broncos.
This is great news for Chris Harris Jr. that he will be another Bronco representing the team in the Pro Bowl. He joins Von Miller and Casey Krieter as players that will play in the big game. Of course, we can’t forget Phillip Lindsay. He will be a social media corespondent.
Chris Harris Jr. will be a big part of the new defense for the Denver Broncos in 2019 with Vic Fangio at the helm, so being able to see him play in the Pro Bowl could give us all something to look forward to in 2019.
Congratulations to Chris Harris Jr. on his Pro Bowl nod. Broncos Country is very excited for you to be playing one more time.
