This move is a necessity now that left tackle Ryan Clady is likely lost for the season due to a torn ACL that he sustained in practice on Wednesday.
This move brings Harris back to the organization he started his NFL career with as he played with the Broncos, which drafted him in the third round, from 2007-2010.
Harris was with the Chiefs a year ago and started 15 of the 16 games he appeared in.
With Ryan Clady sustaining a torn ACL on Wednesday, the
Sambrailo was selected in the second round of the 2015 NFL draft out of Colorado State. If he's the guy the Broncos have to go to with, he will need to not play like a rookie immediately.
"He's not a rookie anymore," Broncos coach Gary Kubiak said after practice. "As of today he's about a four-year veteran."
Michael Schofield, a 2014 third-round pick, still remains an option for the Broncos at left tackle. For now, it appears Chris Clark will stay at right tackle.
This is a crucial blow for the Broncos offense, which will rely a lot on its offensive line under Gary Kubiak. Options to replace Clady at left tackle are Michael Schofield or rookie Ty Sambrailo.
Sambrailo was taken in the second round of the 2015 draft and Schofield was a third-round pick in the 2014 draft.
Marshall is still recovering from a foot injury which has kept him off the practice field thus far.
"I think it will be fairly soon," Marshall said, "because I feel really good, honestly."
Marshall injured his foot in a December game against the Chargers and later played through the pain in the playoffs against the Colts. He said that watching practice hasn't been as much fun as being out there.
"It's kind of tough, because while I'm out here, I need to pay attention; I need to watch more film, because when you do it more, you get a better feel for it," he said. "I have to learn through visual learning and just trying to soak up as much information as I can, because when training camp comes, it's going to come fast, and I've got to learn fast. I'll be all right.
Sanders is working with new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison and coach Gary Kubiak to install the team's new offense and noted it's very different from last year's spread attack.
"You talk about going from a no-huddle offense to an offense that's huddling up, to an offense that is predicated off running a football and then throwing it. It's different," Sanders said.
"It's a totally different set up, but I tell you what, the more and more I'm in it," said Sanders. "Because we can get the run game going and just use my vertical speed on cross routes and all these different combinations of routes is based off the play action, then I think the offense will be successful with Peyton Manning at the helm."
Sanders, who totaled 1,404 yards and nine touchdowns in 2014, doesn't think he'll accomplish the same numbers.
"Of course obviously it's not going to be one of those offenses, well I'm praying that it is, but obviously it's not going to be one of those offenses where you catch it and you're going to have two receivers catching over 100 passes," said Sanders. "Hopefully, my goal is really to try to get a 1,000 yards to just help this team win ball games."
