Harris has not seen the field in 2018 due to a hamstring injury that forced him to land on the IR. Now that he's officially activated, Harris is eligible to play Thursday against the Raiders. The rookie safety was able to practice Wednesday, so there is a strong possibility he suits up against the Raiders. If Harris does play, it's unknown what sort of role he will have with the team.
Harris (hamstring) participated in practice Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Harris has spent all season on injured reserve, and the rookie's return to practice opens his window to be activated from IR. If Harris is eventually activated to the 53-man roster, the first game he'll be eligible to play will be Week 9 against the Raiders.
The former Florida standout was placed on IR on Sept. 3 with the eligibility to return. The fact that San Francisco plans to activate him at midseason suggest Harris is progressing nicely. With fellow safety Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) also likely to miss time, Antone Exum and Tyvis Powell should expect more reps in the meantime.
Harris was dealing with an injured hamstring for the second half of the preseason and it has now gotten to the point where he could miss the entire season. He is still eligible to come back halfway through the season, should the 49ers elect to do so. For now, the team will be limited to four safeties.
Harris suffered a hamstring injury during Wednesday's practice, Matt Barrows of The Athletic Bay Area reports.
Harris was nursing an Achilles injury when the 49ers selected him in the sixth round of April's draft. He is competing with Antone Exum for a spot behind Jaquiski Tartt at strong safety, but Harris has had limited action since arriving in San Francisco. His best path to make the team may be through special teams at this time.
