ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. has been named to the 2019 Pro Bowl, the NFL announced on Monday.

He replaces New England Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore, who is unable to attend as a Super Bowl participant.

Harris Jr. will play in his fourth career Pro Bowl, making him one of just four undrafted cornerbacks in pro football history to make four or more Pro Bowls (or AFL All-Star Games) with his original team. He joins long snapper Casey Kreiter, running back Phillip Lindsay and linebacker Von Miller as the Broncos’ representatives at the annual All-Star Game which will be played on Sunday at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla. (1 p.m. MST kickoff, ESPN).

Starting all 12 games played in 2018 before suffering a season-ending leg injury, Harris Jr. recorded 49 tackles (40 solo), three interceptions (68 yards, 1 touchdown) and 10 passes defensed. He is the only NFL player with multiple interceptions in each of the last seven seasons.
