Harris was receiving some work at linebacker at Wednesday's training session, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Harris registered 19 tackles and one sack while being limited to 11 games during his sophomore campaign. The Dolphins' decision to work the defensive end out at a new position isn't overly surprising, as new coach Brian Flores is expected to use multiple defensive fronts in 2019. A 2017 first-round pick, Harris has yet to live up to expectations over his first two seasons in Miami.
Harris generated 19 tackles and one sack over 11 games in 2018. Harris missed five games in the middle of the season due to a calf injury, but even when healthy, the 2017 first-round pick continued to fall short of expectations. However, there's a new sense of optimism in Harris' long-term outlook now that ex-Patriots defensive playcaller Brian Flores is the Dolphins' new head coach. At his introductory press conference, Flores said he intends to use multiple defensive fronts, which, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, means Harris could be given chances to line up at outside linebacker. It's possible that lining up outside the tackles could give Harris extra space to deploy the pass-rushing moves he showcased at Missouri in 2016, when he racked up nine sacks in 12 games.
Harris (calf) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Harris appears to have put Miami's bye to good use and fully recovered from a calf injury that caused him to miss five straight games. The 2017 first-round pick is on track to suit up for Sunday's game against the Colts and should serve a rotational role in the Dolphins' defensive front.
Harris (calf) did not practice Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Harris has missed four consecutive games due to a lingering calf issue and appears to be a long shot for Sunday's tilt against the Packers. As long as the 2017 first-round pick remains sidelined, Cameron Malveaux will continue to see an uptick in defensive snaps.
Harris (calf) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports. Harris will miss his fourth straight game as he was unable to participate at practice this week. Cameron Malveaux should continue to see increased snaps as a rotational defensive end in his absence.
