Harmon (knee) was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list Saturday. Harmon sustained a torn ACL in July and will miss the 2020 season, so he'll remain on the NFI list this year. The 2019 sixth-round pick performed well in his rookie season with a 30-365-0 line, so he'll set his focus on getting back to full health for 2021. Dontrelle Inman and Antonio Gandy-Golden will battle for reps on the outside, across from Terry McLaurin.
Washington placed Harmon (knee) on the active/non-football injury list Monday. During preparations for his second pro campaign, Harmon suffered a torn ACL, ensuring he won't see the field in 2020. As a rookie sixth-rounder last season, he capped it with a 22-290-0 line on 35 targets over the final seven games. Look for Antonio Gandy-Golden, a fourth-round pick this year, to help pick up the slack on the outside opposite Terry McLaurin.
Harmon suffered a torn ACL while training this summer, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The 2019 sixth-round pick enjoyed a solid finish to his rookie season, averaging 3.1 catches for 41.4 yards on 5.0 targets over the final seven games. Harmon was expected to compete for a starting job during training camp, but he'll instead turn his focus to rehabbing for 2021. He had surgery last week and says he's doing well. Meanwhile, rookie fourth-round pick Antonio Gandy-Golden now has a better chance to earn outside snaps.
Harmon could face competition from rookie draft picks Antonio Gibson (third round) and Antonio Gandy-Golden (fourth round), John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Gibson is arguably more of a threat to slot man Steven Sims or even passing-down back J.D. McKissic, while Gandy-Golden is a direct competitor for the perimeter snaps that went to Harmon throughout the second half of last season. The 2019 sixth-round pick finished his rookie season with a 68.2 percent catch rate and 8.3 yards per target, but he never became a player that demanded heavy volume, drawing no more than six targets in any one game. Harmon has the advantage of NFL experience, but Gandy-Golden is the better prospect coming out of college, and both will need to learn a new system under offensive coordinator Scott Turner.
Harmon caught three of five targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 47-16 loss to Dallas, finishing his rookie season with 30 receptions for 365 yards on 44 targets. The sixth-round pick had no more than 58 yards in any game and never scored a touchdown, but he did play at least 66 percent of offensive snaps in seven consecutive games to close out the season, averaging 3.1 catches for 41.4 yards on 5.0 targets over that stretch. While fellow rookies Terry McLaurin (concussion) and Steven Sims Jr. held far more appeal for fantasy managers, Harmon did well to catch 68.2 percent of his chances for 8.3 yards per target in an offense that finished the season with a 62.2 completion percentage and 6.7 yards per pass attempt. He should have a chance to compete for a starting job in 2020, presumably the outside spot across from McLaurin while Sims continues to man the slot -- although new head coach Ron Rivera may want to bolster the position group in the offseason via the draft or free agency.
