Harmon recorded eight tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's loss to Detroit.
Harmon's eight tackles were more than his total from the first two weeks combined. He saw an uptick in snaps with Patrick Chung (concussion) held out, and he'll fill a similar role in Week 4 if Chung's absence extends another week.
Harmon recently was denied entry into Costa Rica for trying to bring marijuana into the country, ESPN.com reports.
Harmon was detained by Costa Rican authorities and then sent back to the United States. The Patriots have acknowledged they're aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering more information. The 27-year-old safety only has 15 starts and 115 tackles in 79 career regular-season games, but he's shown a nose for the ball by picking off 11 passes, including a career-high four last season. It won't come as any surprise if this incident leads to a suspension.
Harmon had one solo tackle, one pass breakup and one interception against the Dolphins on Sunday.
Even as a backup free safety, Harmon has posted an interception in back-to-back games. He has just 19 tackles (13 solo) on the season, though, leaving him as a low-level IDP threat.
