RB - NE
This Week Outlook
Damien Harris rushed nine times for 32 yards during Sunday's win over the Miami Dolphins. He also hauled in all three of his targets for an additional 18 receiving yards.
Harris returned from a five-game absence and immediately registered more rushes, receptions, and receiving yards than Rhamondre Stevenson. While Stevenson projects as the lead back long-term, it's fair to view Harris as a low-end RB3 in Week 18. He has certainly earned snaps and should continue to play a role in the regular season finale versus Buffalo.
Damien Harris (thigh) will play in Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins.
Harris has been out since Week 12 due to a thigh injury, but he has been removed from the team's injury report and won't have a designation for Sunday. He's set to play against the Dolphins on New Years Day, and he could be the team's clear RB1 if Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) is ruled out ahead of game time.
Damien Harris was not seen at practice on Thursday.
This is a downgrade after Harris was limited in practice on Wednesday. It is looking like he will miss another game as he has been sidelined since Week 12.
Damien Harris was limited in practice on Wednesday.
Harris was limited in practice the past couple of weeks before he was ruled out, so he might have to log a full practice by Friday to have a good chance of playing. Either way, he should not be in championship lineups.
Damien Harris will be inactive for New England's game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday.
Harris has been nursing a thigh injury that has knocked him out for a few weeks, and he won't be available to play on Saturday. He seems to be nearing a return, but that won't come until next week at the earliest. Rhamondre Stevenson should continue to lead this backfield with Pierre Strong Jr. and Kevin Harris backing him up against the Bengals.
