Harris hauled in all three of his targets for 28 yards Sunday against the Ravens. Harris' status was in question entering Sunday, but he was ultimately cleared to suit up. The second-string tight end proceeded to post his second straight multi-catch week after recording just one during the team's first 11 games. Harris remains on hand as the next man up at the position should starter Travis Kelce be sidelined for some reason.
Harris (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports. The illness prevented Harris from practicing in any capacity Thursday and Friday, but he apparently made enough progress over the last 24 hours to gain clearance to play. Harris will slot in behind Travis Kelce as the Chiefs' backup tight end, but coach Andy Reid's offensive scheme frequently features both players on the field. After hauling in three of his season-high six targets for 39 yards in the Week 13 win over the Raiders, Harris could see a similar level of involvement Sunday with Sammy Watkins (foot) and the newly acquired Kelvin Benjamin (coach's decision) both inactive.
Harris (illness/knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports. Harris was withheld from practices Thursday and Friday, with the illness seemingly the greater concern of the two issues at this point. Per Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star, coach Andy Reid said after the team's final practice of the week that he expects Harris to be ready to go Sunday barring a setback in his recovery, so the tight end ultimately should be available. Though Travis Kelce tops the depth chart at his position, the Chiefs often deploy two tight-end formations featuring Harris, who caught a season-high three passes for 39 yards and a touchdown in the Week 13 win over the Raiders. Harris could see heightened involvement in the passing game again Sunday with starting wideout Sammy Watkins (foot) listed as doubtful and considered highly unlikely to play.
Harris hauled in three of six targets, amassing 39 receiving yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 40-33 win against the Raiders. Harris has developed an appetite for the end zone in his fifth pro campaign, with three receiving touchdowns this year compared to three scores through his first 56 career games. The part-time tight end remains a deep-league dart throw, however, never exceeding 40 receiving yards while accounting for a touchdown in the same game this season, and only once (in Week 13) having racked up at least three catches in a single game. Next in Week 14 is a matchup against a Baltimore defense that's been forgiving to tight ends this year, with 63 receptions and 753 receiving yards allowed to the position (bottom eight in both categories).
Harris snared just one of his two targets for three yards Monday against the Rams. Harris was on the field for 54 percent of the team's offensive snaps Monday, but he remains well down the pecking order for targets. There's no reason to believe that will change in the coming weeks as long as Travis Kelce remains healthy.
