Harris (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Arizona, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Harris suffered the initial concussion more than two weeks ago and still hasn't returned to practice. His absence leaves rookie Trey Quinn as Washington's likely No. 4 wide receiver for Sunday's game in the desert, per Copeland.
Harris (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Les Carpenter of The Washington Post reports.
It's unclear if he worked out on a side field Wednesday, as he did Sunday, but whatever he did wasn't enough to register beyond DNP. With little evidence he's making progress through the concussion protocol, the Redskins may have to turn to rookies Trey Quinn or Cam Sims in the event one of their top three wideouts (Jamison Crowder, Paul Richardson or Josh Doctson) gets dinged up Sunday in Arizona.
Harris is recovering from a concussion, Brian McNally of the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports.
Harris took the field for warmups before Friday's preseason game against the Broncos, but he didn't end up playing in the contest. He seems to be locked in as Washington's No. 4 receiver, putting him just one injury away from regular snaps on offense.
Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Harris may be the best route-runner on the team, Sam Fortier and Kimberley Martin of The Washington Post reports. "The thing about Mo is he can play any position, and he is very quarterback-friendly," Gruden said. "He's got strong hands and he's probably - he could be our best route-runner on our team... We have a pretty good group of wide receivers here that's a log jam for that fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh spot, so we'll see what happens."
While he complimented Harris for his performance early in training camp, Gruden also alluded to the expectation that Jamison Crowder, Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson (shoulder) will form the regular group in three-wide formations. Harris does seem to be a favorite for the No. 4 role, which would leave him just one injury away from significant playing time. Ryan Grant opened last season with the same role and ended up catching 45 passes for 573 yards and four touchdowns.
Harris has an opportunity to earn the No. 4 wide receiver role, Rich Tandler of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Ryan Grant held the No. 4 role entering last season and finished the year with 612 offensive snaps and 65 targets after Terrelle Pryor suffered an ankle injury. The Redskins brought in Paul Richardson to replace Pryor for a regular spot in three-wide sets, but they didn't secure a clear replacement for Grant's role. Harris, who has 12 catches through two NFL seasons, will compete with Brian Quick, Trey Quinn and a few other players for depth chart slotting behind Richardson, Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson.
