Chris Harris Injury: Cornerback Hurts Neck Making Tackle, Return Questionable

Denver Broncos cornerback suffered an apparent neck injury in the second half of the team's game against the Buffalo Bills, and his return to the game is questionable. Harris suffered the injury while tackling Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who had scrambled out of the pocket.

Jonathan Wilhite replaced Harris as the team's nickelback.

The Broncos were already without veteran safety Brian Dawkins, who suffered an injury to his neck a couple of weeks ago. Denver has had trouble slowing down the Bills offense all afternoon, and the loss of another defensive player certainly does not help the cause.

Buffalo leads 40-14 midway through the fourth quarter.
