Injury roundup: Chris Harris (shoulder) will play Sunday

The Broncos will have the services of cornerback Chris Harris on Sunday -- but will he be at full strength?

Harris is active for the AFC Championship Game despite having a deep-tissue shoulder bruise that's necessitated 24-hour treatment, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

Harris will not require surgery on his shoulder, Rapoport added, but the sticky cornerback is struggling to even brush his teeth. He's been experiencing weakness and pain. The Broncos will need to utilize Harris as much as possible against a nearly full-strength Patriots offense that is coming off an impressive performance against the Chiefs.

Will Tom Brady pick on the ailing corner? We will soon find out.

Here are other injuries we've been monitoring Sunday:

  1. Jamie Collins (back), Scott Chandler (knee), Julian Edelman (foot), Chandler Jones (toe, abdomen) and Rob Gronkowski (knee/back) are active after being among 14 Patriots listed as questionable Friday.
