CB CHRIS HARRIS JR. NAMED BRONCOS 2014 ED BLOCK COURAGE AWARD RECIPIENT

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos have selected cornerback Chris Harris Jr. as their 2014 Ed Block Courage Award winner, it was announced.

Each year, the Ed Block Courage Award honors players who exemplify commitments to the principles of sportsmanship and courage.

Harris Jr., who suffered a torn ACL in Denver’s AFC Divisional Playoff Game last season, returned to make his first career Pro Bowl in 2014 after starting every contest for the Broncos and totaling 55 tackles (51 solo), three interceptions (52 yds.), a team-high 18 passes defensed, one sack (2 yds.) and one fumble recovery.

He ranked first in the NFL with a 47.8 quarterback rating against him according to Pro Football Focus and did not allow a touchdown this season as the website’s top-rated cornerback.

In 63 career regular-season games (47 starts), Harris Jr. has totaled 246 tackles (216 solo), 10 interceptions (212 yds.), 47 passes defensed, 3.5 sacks (19.5 yds.), one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. He owns 18 tackles (12 solo) and five passes defensed in four postseason appearances (3 starts).

The Ed Block Courage Award is named in honor of Ed Block, the longtime head athletic trainer of the Baltimore Colts, who was a pioneer in his profession and a respected humanitarian. Recipients are selected by their teammates for exceptional courage, great character and inspiring effort.
