CHICAGO - Chris Harris has spent the past few weeks frustrating quarterback Paxton Lynch.
On Thursday night, Harris quit frustrating his teammate and turned to frustrating Bears quarterback Mike Glennon.
Harris made a cameo appearance, but it was some kind of cameo. His 50-yard touchdown return on an interception one minute into the game was the night's most exciting, and revealing, moment.
Harris revealed, once again, that he's one of the NFL's premier defensive players. And Mike Glennon revealed to coach John Fox and everyone else that he's an iffy candidate to start at quarterback.
"Chris Harris makes a play he's made in camp the last couple weeks," said Bronco coach Vance Joseph. "So, I wasn't surprised."
Lynch laughed as he considered the Harris touchdown. Harris has often confounded him during practices.
"It was good," Lynch said, "to see it happen to somebody else."
Joseph did not throw the full might of the Bronco defense against the Bears in the 24-17 win. Harris was gone early in the first quarter, and linebacker Von Miller did not make an appearance. Joseph said he did not want to risk an injury to Miller.
