Although offensive tackle Ryan Harris is going through extensive rehabilitation for a toe injury suffered last year, Broncos coach Josh McDaniels had some positive news on his progress.
“It’s unfortunate Ryan had the injury last year, but his rehab is coming along wonderfully,” McDaniels said. “He has a great attitude about it. He’s usually one of the first people I see every morning here. He’s dedicated and determined to come back full strength.”
The best sign for Harris’ return might be that McDaniels said he didn’t think the team would draft a tackle early in the NFL draft. While the team could address depth later, McDaniels said the team was pleased with its starting tackles, Harris and Ryan Clady.
“With our situation as it currently stands, we feel comfortable with the two players we have, in terms of the starting roles, and we’ll see how the draft unfolds,” McDaniels said. “You don’t pass up a really, really talented talented player if there’s nobody you feel better about. But, I don’t think that’s a direction we’re looking to do early in the draft.”
