Default Chris Harris, Chris Kuper Both Return To Denver Broncosí Practice Wednesday

For the Denver Broncos (1-1), itís a short week after playing in Atlanta Monday night in a loss to the Falcons. With a third consecutive great team on their schedule, the Broncos have to get prepared, and in a hurry.

This Sunday, Denver hosts the unbeaten Houston Texans (2-0), a team some believe will be able to compete for an AFC Championship this season. Luckily for the men in orange and blue, they got some familiar faces back on the practice field at Dove Valley Wednesday.

Well, sort of.

Starting right guard and team captain Chris Kuper returned as he continues to rehab the broken forearm he sustained in mid-August. Kuper still looks to be at least a week away from being able to suit up during a game, though, as he reportedly participated in stretches but then moved to work with strength coaches.

The Broncos hope he can get back into game shape quickly as career backup Manny Ramirez has been good, but not great. Ramirez was completely overpowered on one play Monday night, which resulted in Peyton Manning being flattened.

Another Chris returned as well, starting nickelback Chris Harris. He, like Kuper, stretched but didnít participate in the brunt of practice, working with strength coaches as well.

Harris sprained an ankle in the fourth quarter of the Steelers game Week One and he was unable to play Monday. He is closer than Kuper, and the team is hopeful heíll be able to go this Sunday. Heís come up huge in pass coverage the last two seasons, making noticeable strides to be a great corner of late.

Without Harris, Tony Carter played nickel Monday, and he was burned a couple times in the game.

looks like Harris will be another game day decision.

I honestly didn't think Carter played that badly at all. Certainly not the reason we lost.

The Broncos still won't have as many Chris's as the Mane does! They're obviously trying to catch up though.

Harris being out made a noticeable impact on the secondary against the Falcons. It would be huge if he could play on Sunday.

I expect Kupe is out another week or two, but will be a nice upgrade when he does get back in there.

We'll need Kupe down the stretch. Hopefully they'll make sure he's as close to 100 percent as is reasonably possible before inserting him back into the lineup.

People named Chris are awesome. Both players are on the COC and are therefore needed to win the super bowl. I look forward to Kuper's return because it will elevate the line's play to levels that will blow your mind.

The only reason Jay Cutler ever started dating Kristin Cavallari was because she introduced herself as "Kris".
