  • Falcons' Josh Harris: Plays all 16 games in 2020

    Harris appeared in all 16 of the Falcons' contests during the 2020 season, totaling 141 special-teams snaps.

    The 31-year-old continues to serve as Atlanta's long snapper, as he has ever since making his debut for the organization in 2012. Of a possible 144 regular-season appearances over his nine pro campaigns, Harris has missed only five.

    The Falcons placed Harris (hip) on injured reserve, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

  • Falcons' Josh Harris: Participates in practice Wednesday

    Harris (hip) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Harris was forced to sit out Atlanta's season opener due to a hip injury but seems to have fully recovered. The starting long snapper seems likely to suit up against the Panthers on Sunday, giving both placekicker Matt Bryant and punter Matt Bosher the comfort of reliable snap timing.

  • Falcons' Josh Harris: Won't play Thursday

    Harris (hip) is listed as inactive against the Eagles on Thursday.

    Harris, Atlanta's starting long snapper, will sit out Thursday's season opener versus Philadelphia. Jeff Overbaugh has been called up from the practice squad to replace Harris. While Harris' absence won't directly impact the Falcons' skill position players, both placekicker Matt Bryant and punter Matt Bosher could have trouble adjusting to the timing of Overbaugh's snaps with such short notice.

  • Falcons' Josh Harris: Game-time decision for Thursday's game

    Harris (hip) was a limited participant in Falcons' practice on Tuesday after being inactive for Monday's session, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Atlanta's long snapper is progressing for a potential Week 1 return against Philadelphia, though there remains a possibility that Jeff Overbaugh may be called up from the practice squad to replace Harris in the lineup. While it seems like an insignificant issue for the starting long snapper to be in danger of missing regular-season action, the Falcons' place holder, kicker and punter would be forced to adjust to Overbaugh's tendencies with minimal time to prepare for one of the biggest tests of the year. Even the smallest hitch in timing has potential to be catastrophic should Atlanta find itself in a high-pressure special teams situation late in the ballgame.
