Englewood, CO (SportsNetwork.com) - Denver's Peyton Manning-led offense gets all the attention, but the Broncos have lost a key member of their defense for the rest of the season.

Broncos coach John Fox announced Monday that starting cornerback Chris Harris suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's win over the Chargers in the AFC Divisional Playoffs.

Harris was hurt in the third quarter and was replaced by Quentin Jammer. An MRI exam on Monday revealed the severity of the injury.

That means the Broncos must play without one of their most valuable defensive players against the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game.

"Thanks for the prayers , Gonna work extremely hard and come back a Monster next year . God is on my side," Harris said on his Twitter account. "Blessed to be able to help the team get this Far , and will still do my part in meeting room to help my guys out."

The 24-year-old Harris had 65 tackles, 13 passes defensed and three interceptions during the regular season. With Champ Bailey out for much of the season, Harris became an important part of Denver's secondary.

Denver previously lost star linebacker Von Miller to a torn ACL in a Dec. 22 victory at Houston.
