Damien Harris News
Buffalo Bills running back Damien Harris (neck, concussion) has been placed on injured reserve. He will miss a minimum of four games. In a corresponding move, running back Ty Johnson was elevated from the practice squad. Harris had been splitting time with Latavius Murray as depth options behind James Cook, but he will now miss extended time after exiting Week 6 and being taken to the hospital with a serious upper-body injury. Harris was discharged the next day, but his road to recovery will still take some time. Placing the 26-year-old on IR gives Murray sole possession of the No. 2 role while Johnson occupies the third-string role.
Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott said that running back Damien Harris (concussion, neck) has been ruled out for the Week 7 contest against the division-rival New England Patriots on Sunday. It's not a surprise after Harris was taken by ambulance to a local hospital last Sunday night after suffering a concussion and a neck sprain on his only carry of the night in the win over the New York Giants. The 26-year-old didn't practice at all this week and is likely looking at a multi-week absence. He could be a candidate to go on Injured Reserve, which would require him to miss four games. In Harris' absence, Latavius Murray becomes a more attractive touchdown-dependent flex option as the goal-line option at RB for the Bills.
Buffalo Bills running back Damien Harris (concussion, neck) remained absent from practice on Thursday for the second straight day, according to head coach Sean McDermott. Harris suffered a concussion and a neck injury on his only carry of the game in Sunday night's win over the New York Giants, and he had to be placed on a backboard, taken off the field in an ambulance and evaluated at a hospital. The 26-year-old has since been released from the hospital, but he unsurprisingly hasn't practiced this week and is a long shot to play in Week 7 against the New England Patriots. Harris is probably a good bet to miss more time as well, and he could be a candidate for Injured Reserve. Veteran Latavius Murray will be a more appealing touchdown-dependent flex behind James Cook for however long Harris is out.
Buffalo Bills running back Damien Harris had spurts of success in his four seasons with the New England Patriots and is now set to join one of the league's best offenses on the other side of the AFC East rivalry. Buffalo has James Cook, Latavius Murray, and Nyheim Hines on the roster, but Harris should cement himself as the lead short-yardage and goal line back. Cook projects to be the lead receiving back and could have a slight edge over Harris in total touches, but the 215-pound Alabama...
