When these teams met in Week 1, Harris saw his first game action since tearing his ACL in the playoffs last year, and only played about half the snaps.
"At that time, I wasn't fully healthy," Harris said. "I was going in and out of the game when we played them the first time.
"So now this time, I'll be in … shoot, I'm not coming out," Harris added with a laugh.
His 39 plays against the Colts were by far his lowest this season, and he and Talib stuck to their right and left sides, respectively, while Bradley Roby manned the slot. How the Broncos decide to cover Hilton this week could change. Denver's corners have shadowed specific receivers in recent weeks, and Harris' body type and comfort moving to the slot seems like a good match for the shifty Hilton. At the same time, Talib shadowed Hilton for the Patriots in the divisional playoffs last year.
One way or another, the first-time Pro Bowl wide receiver is a dangerous threat that must be contained. Hilton's 19 100-yard games in his career are the second-most any player has posted in his first three seasons since 1960, behind only Randy Moss. If the Broncos can limit Hilton to the five catches and 41 yards he had in Week 1, the Colts' passing attack will lack some of its bite.
