Harris inked a three-year contract extension with the team in November, and although he'll miss the remainder of the season, he's expected to resume long-snapping duties for Atlanta in 2019. The Falcons signed Jon Condo to take Harris' place.
Harris has been with Atlanta since going undrafted out of Auburn in 2012 and has missed just one game in his NFL career. The Georgia native is now locked in as the Falcons' long snapper for this season and the foreseeable future.
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 reliable snap timing.
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.
