Harris (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Friday.
Harris could not clear the league-mandated concussion protocol in time for Sunday's season finale against the Eagles, and has been placed on injured reserve to free up a roster spot. Michael Floyd and Jehu Chesson will benefit from an uptick in targets with Harris sidelined, especially if Josh Doctson (illness) is unable to suit up.
Harris (concussion) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Harris was able to progress to a limited practice participant Thursday, but apparently couldn't fully clear the concussion protocol for Sunday's game. With Josh Doctson (illness) listed as questionable, Michael Floyd and Jehu Chesson could be pressed into heavily increased offensive snap counts in Sunday's season finale.

Harris didn't log any activity Wednesday, so his advancement to limited participation suggests he's made at least some progress through the NFL's concussion protocol over the last day. The wideout will need to gain clearance from an independent neurologist by the end of the week before getting the green light to play in the season finale Sunday against the Eagles. Over his last five outings, Harris has caught just two of 13 targets for 26 yards, so an active status in Week 17 wouldn't necessarily guarantee him a clear path to fantasy relevance.

Harris has yet to reach the stage in the concussion protocol where some on-field reps are acceptable. Until he does, he'll have a difficult time improving his chances of suiting up in Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Eagles. Prior to the start of Wednesday's session, the Redskins' healthiest and most viable wide receivers were Jamison Crowder, Josh Doctson and Michael Floyd.
Harris (concussion) has been downgraded from questionable to out for Saturday's game against the Titans.
Washington apparently wasn't confident that either Harris or tight end Vernon Davis would clear the five-step concussion protocol prior to Saturday's 4:30 p.m. EST kickoff, so both will be sidelined for Week 16. Meanwhile, receiver Josh Doctson (back) is questionable and top tight end Jordan Reed (foot/ankle) is sidelined, leaving an already banged-up pass-catching group in even rougher shape than usual. If Doctson joins Harris in street clothes this weekend, the Redskins would be down to Michael Floyd, Jehu Chesson and Darvin Kidsy at wideout behind No. 1 option Jamison Crowder.
