  • Lions' Charles Harris: Resurgent 2021 season with Detroit

    Harris recorded 65 tackles, 7.5 sacks and two forced fumbles over 17 games in 2021.

    After flaming out as a first-round pick in Miami and then finding modest success as a reserve in Atlanta, Harris thrived in Detroit while nearly doubling the number of tackles and sacks he accrued in his previous four seasons combined. The Missouri product consequently seems like an obvious candidate for Detroit to retain in the offseason, though it seems possible that the 26-year-old could have a strong market for his services when Harris hits unrestricted free agency in March.

  • Lions' Charles Harris: Monster performance in upset win

    Harris notched 12 tackles (seven solo) and 1.5 sacks during Sunday's 30-12 win over the Cardinals.

    After never recording more than six tackles in a game this season, Harris exploded for a season-high 12 stops Sunday. He also has 3.5 sacks over his last three games and 6.5 on the season. The 2017 first-round pick is picking up steam for the stretch run and will have a favorable matchup against the Falcons in Week 16.

  • Lions' Charles Harris: Two sacks against Minnesota

    Harris recorded two sacks during Sunday's 29-27 win over the Vikings.

    Harris notched his first sack since Week 5 and now has six on the season. The 26-year-old linebacker's fantasy production depends on him getting after the quarterback, something at which he has been inconsistent this season. However, he does have a favorable matchup against Denver (24th in sacks allowed per game) in Week 14.

  • Lions' Charles Harris: Full practice Thursday

    Harris (oblique) practiced in full Thursday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    The linebacker suffered an oblique injury in Week 6 against the Bengals, ultimately causing him to be limited to begin the week. With his full participation Thursday, he appears on track to suit up Sunday against the Rams. Harris has racked up 17 tackles, four sacks and a forced fumble in six contests to open 2021.

  • Lions' Charles Harris: Dealing with oblique injury

    Coach Dan Campbell said Monday that Harris is considered day-to-day with an oblique injury, Justin Rogers of The Detroit News reports.

    Harris didn't return to Sunday's game against the Bengals after he sustained his injury late in the fourth quarter. He totaled five tackles (four solo) prior to his early exit and appears to have a chance to suit up against the Rams on Sunday.

  • Lions' Charles Harris: Suffers hip problem

    Harris (hip) left Sunday's game against the Bengals and didn't return.

    Harris left the game late in the fourth quarter, and the coming days will be key to determine the severity of the injury. He should be treated as questionable for next week's contest against the Rams.

  • Lions' Charles Harris: Inks deal with Lions

    Harris agreed to a contract with the Lions on Thursday, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

    For a Falcons defense that struggled to generate pressure on opposing quarterbacks in 2020, Harris tied for third on the team with a career-high three sacks. It's apparent enough the former Missouri standout hasn't thus far lived up to his being selected No. 22 overall in the 2017 draft, but the 26-year-old's stock is trending up as he takes his career to Detroit. Harris had just 1.5 sacks over 25 games in 2018 and 2019 combined.

  • Falcons' Charles Harris: Notches sack against Saints

    Harris registered two tackles, including one sack, and one pass deflection during Sunday's 24-9 loss to New Orleans.

    Harris kicked off the season with sacks in each of his first two appearances Weeks 3 and 4, but he subsequently endured a drought of five games in that category. Harris' second-quarter takedown of Taysom Hill snapped the streak, simultaneously handing the 25-year-old his second consecutive outing with a QB hit. Next for Atlanta in Week 12 is a matchup against a Raiders offensive line that is tied for the fifth-fewest sacks allowed in 2020.

  • Falcons' Charles Harris: Ejected on Thursday night

    Harris was disqualified during the third quarter of Thursday's 25-17 win against the Panthers for a helmet-to-helmet hit on quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

    Carolina's signal-caller got tripped by Dante Fowler and was in the process of falling to the ground on a third-down play with 4:20 to go in the third quarter, but Harris plunged into Bridgewater, initiating cringe-worthy helmet-to-helmet contact. Upon review, the officiating crew ruled Harris' tackle to be malicious enough to merit ejection, ending the 25-year-old's night at a total of zero tackles. The play will certainly undergo review from NFL offices, at which point further discipline may be dealt out to Harris.

  • Falcons' Charles Harris: Logs sack for second straight game

    Harris collected two tackles, including a sack of Aaron Rodgers during Monday's 30-16 loss to the Packers.

    The 25-year-old defensive end corralled Rodgers to the ground at the 7:24 mark of the fourth quarter, surprising the eight-time Pro Bowl quarterback from the blind side and collecting his second sack in as many games. Harris is adding much-needed life to a Falcons pass rush that so far is tied for 23rd in the league with 1.8 sacks per game.

  • Falcons' Charles Harris: Collects sack in Falcons debut

    Harris registered one sack and two total tackles during Sunday's 30-26 loss to the Bears.

    The 2017 first-round pick made his Atlanta debut after missing Weeks 1 and 2 because of an ankle injury, and he got involved immediately by recording one of two Falcons sacks on the afternoon. Harris managed just half a sack over 14 appearances last year during what would be the final year of his disappointing Miami tenure, but he's off to a productive start as a pass rusher with his new team. Week 4 presents a challenging matchup on Monday night, as the Packers have allowed a league-low two sacks over the first three weeks of 2020.

  • Falcons' Charles Harris: Set for return

    Harris (ankle) is slated to play Sunday against the Bears, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    The 2017 first-round draft choice is set to face off against a Bears offensive line that is situated near the middle of the NFL with 2.5 sacks per game but ranks fourth-best leaguewide in stuffed rate (10 percent). An appearance against Chicago would mark Harris' Falcons debut as he missed Weeks 1 and 2 due to injury.
