Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris estimated that he's 85 percent recovered from his torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

And he anticipates being cleared medically before the start of the regular season.

“I’m doing great, man,” Harris told the Tulsa World. “I’m probably about 85 percent right. I have one more month of training and then I finally get (medically) released so I’m excited about that.”

Harris is playing this season under a second-round, $2.187 million tender.

A former undrafted free agent, Harris has established himself as one of the best young cornerbacks before he got hurt.

“Coming in undrafted, nothing is given to you,” Harris said. “They don’t give you a spot and you have to go out there and take it. Right now, I’m just glad I’m not in that position anymore.”
