Denver Broncos right tackle Ryan Harris has been medically cleared to return to action, Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post reports.
After starting all 16 games at right tackle in 2008, Harris injured the big toe on his right foot, causing him to miss a month of action midway through the 2009 season. In his first game back, Harris re-aggravated the injury, which was revealed to be a fracture that required surgery.
Harris finished 2009 on injured reserve, and missed much of the Broncos’ OTAs and mini-camps. When he did return to practice, Harris was held out of team drills.
When healthy, Harris and Pro Bowler Ryan Clady form one of the youngest and most talented tackle tandems in the league. With Clady recovering from off-season knee surgery–after injuring himself playing basketball–the Broncos could use a return to full strength from Harris.
