Mike Klis of 9 News reports that the Broncos activated DL Shelby Harris from the COVID list and placed CB Bryce Callahan on injured reserve with a foot injury.

It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks. 

Harris, 29, is a former seventh-round pick of the Raiders back in 2014. He was on an off of their practice squad for two years before returning to the Raiders on a one-year, exclusive rights deal.

Unfortunately, the Raiders waived Harris after the 2016 draft and he had brief stints with the Jets and Cowboys before signing a futures deal with the Broncos for the 2017 season. Denver brought Harris back last year on one-year, $3.095 million restricted deal and signed him to a one-year deal worth up to $3.25 million this past March. 

In 2020, Harris has appeared in seven games for the Broncos and recorded 23 tackles, 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble and three passes defended.
