Harris showed some promise as the 2014 season wore on, but an injury sidelined him for much of the second half of the season. Even though he's healthy, the third-year tight end has seen little production offensively while his top competition for snaps in James O'Shaughnessy caught two balls for 54 yards Thursday. While he still outsnapped the rookie 23 to 14, a change could be around the corner if he can't begin impacting the game.
Harris previously endured a procedure on his foot, though the grafting process that normally takes place following it did not occur. Therefore, a second surgery was needed.
Harris is expected to be ready to go by the time training camp comes around.
“We knew there was a possibility of this happening,” Reid said. “They want to try it without the graft initially, but we feel pretty good that he’s going to be OK.”
Harris worked behind Travis Kelce and Anthony Fasano, and had his 2014 rookie season cut short in November due to a broken foot. The 6-foot-7, 230-pound pass catcher came down with just three receptions for 20 yards before the injury.
