  • Falcons' Erik Harris: Re-signs with Atlanta

    Harris (pectoral) signed a one-year contract with the Falcons on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Harris started 12 games for the Falcons last season before undergoing surgery to address a torn pectoral in December. The 31-year-old totaled 64 tackles (46 solo) and a half-sack, and he should fill the same role for Atlanta in 2022.

  • Falcons' Erik Harris: Officially placed on IR

    Harris (pectoral) has landed on the Falcons' injured reserve.

    Harris suffered a torn pectoral in the Falcons' Week 14 victory over the Panthers. The injury will require surgery, so this move to IR is more of a formality. In his absence, Jaylinn Hawkins figures to be the prime candidate to replace him at free safety.

  • Falcons' Erik Harris: Ruled out for season

    Harris suffered a torn pectoral in Sunday's win over the Panthers and has been ruled out for the remainder of the season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Harris will require surgery after sustaining his injury in the first quarter of Sunday's matchup. The safety appeared in 12 games for the Falcons in 2021 and totaled 64 tackles (46 solo), half a sack and eight pass defenses. Jaylinn Hawkins should take over as the primary free safety in Harris' absence.

    Harris (chest) is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Panthers, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

    Harris recorded one tackle for loss before leaving the Week 14 contest in the first quarter. If he is unable to return, then Jaylinn Hawkins will likely step into a bigger role for the remainder of the game.

  • Falcons' Erik Harris: Seven stops in blowout loss

    Harris registered seven tackles (four solo) and one pass deflection during Sunday's 43-3 loss to the Cowboys.

    Harris has registered at least seven tackles in four straight games since the Falcons' Week 6 bye. The 31-year-old safety's tackling production makes him a high-floor IDP option, but his lack of sacks and turnovers leaves little upside for fantasy managers.

  • Falcons' Erik Harris: Not on injury report

    Harris didn't appear on the Falcons' injury report Wednesday after suffering a shoulder injury in Week 7, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

    The 31-year-old should be expected to be active against the Panthers in Week 8. The free safety has 28 tackles and five pass deflections in five games this season.

  • Falcons' Erik Harris: Suffers shoulder injury

    Harris (shoulder) is questionable to return Sunday against the Dolphins, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    Harris was dealing with a calf injury earlier this week and is now being evaluated for a shoulder problem, so it seems the injuries just can't let him play freely. If he can't return, then Jaylinn Hawkins might be in line to see additional snaps.

  • Falcons' Erik Harris: Back to full health

    Harris (calf) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report.

    Harris missed Week 5 due to a calf injury, but he appears to have returned to full health during Atlanta's bye. He stands to resume handling his usual starting role beginning with Sunday's road matchup against the Dolphins.

  • Falcons' Erik Harris: Won't play Sunday

    Harris (calf) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets.

    With Harris out, look for Jaylinn Hawkins to start at safety in his place alongside Duron Harmon. Harris, who has logged 21 tackles in four games to date, will thus target a return to action after the Falcons' Week 6 bye when the team faces Miami on Oct. 24.

  • Falcons' Erik Harris: Doubtful for London game

    Harris (calf) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jets, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

    Barring an unexpected improvement, Harris will likely sit out in London due to the injury he sustained in Week 4 against Washington. The Falcons will be short in the secondary against a Jets team that's expected to have its full complement of wide receivers available for the first time with Elijah Moore having cleared concussion protocol.

  • Falcons' Erik Harris: Not practicing Wednesday

    Harris (calf) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

    Harris picked up the calf injury during Sunday's loss to Washington, and he was unable to practice Wednesday. The 31-year-old likely will need to practice in some capacity Thursday or Friday to have a chance of playing Week 5.

  • Falcons' Erik Harris: Won't return to Sunday's game

    Harris has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against Washington with a calf injury.

    Harris was productive early in Sunday's contest, as he recorded six tackles (four solo) prior to his exit in the fourth quarter. Jaylinn Hawkins should see work at free safety while the 31-year-old is sidelined.
