Harris registered two tackles, including one sack, and one pass deflection during Sunday's 24-9 loss to New Orleans.
Harris kicked off the season with sacks in each of his first two appearances Weeks 3 and 4, but he subsequently endured a drought of five games in that category. Harris' second-quarter takedown of Taysom Hill snapped the streak, simultaneously handing the 25-year-old his second consecutive outing with a QB hit. Next for Atlanta in Week 12 is a matchup against a Raiders offensive line that is tied for the fifth-fewest sacks allowed in 2020.
Harris was disqualified during the third quarter of Thursday's 25-17 win against the Panthers for a helmet-to-helmet hit on quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
Carolina's signal-caller got tripped by Dante Fowler and was in the process of falling to the ground on a third-down play with 4:20 to go in the third quarter, but Harris plunged into Bridgewater, initiating cringe-worthy helmet-to-helmet contact. Upon review, the officiating crew ruled Harris' tackle to be malicious enough to merit ejection, ending the 25-year-old's night at a total of zero tackles. The play will certainly undergo review from NFL offices, at which point further discipline may be dealt out to Harris.
Harris collected two tackles, including a sack of Aaron Rodgers during Monday's 30-16 loss to the Packers.
The 25-year-old defensive end corralled Rodgers to the ground at the 7:24 mark of the fourth quarter, surprising the eight-time Pro Bowl quarterback from the blind side and collecting his second sack in as many games. Harris is adding much-needed life to a Falcons pass rush that so far is tied for 23rd in the league with 1.8 sacks per game.
Harris registered one sack and two total tackles during Sunday's 30-26 loss to the Bears.
The 2017 first-round pick made his Atlanta debut after missing Weeks 1 and 2 because of an ankle injury, and he got involved immediately by recording one of two Falcons sacks on the afternoon. Harris managed just half a sack over 14 appearances last year during what would be the final year of his disappointing Miami tenure, but he's off to a productive start as a pass rusher with his new team. Week 4 presents a challenging matchup on Monday night, as the Packers have allowed a league-low two sacks over the first three weeks of 2020.
Harris (ankle) is slated to play Sunday against the Bears, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The 2017 first-round draft choice is set to face off against a Bears offensive line that is situated near the middle of the NFL with 2.5 sacks per game but ranks fourth-best leaguewide in stuffed rate (10 percent). An appearance against Chicago would mark Harris' Falcons debut as he missed Weeks 1 and 2 due to injury.
Harris (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
The 2017 first-round pick is looking for a fresh start in Atlanta, but he'll have to wait until Week 3 to make his season debut. Once he's ready to return, Harris will contribute as depth at defensive end.
Harris (ankle) did not participate during Wednesday's practice, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.
Harris was unable to suit up for Sunday's season opener against the Seahawks, providing him with his eighth missed games over a possible 33 appearances since the start of the 2018 campaign. The 2017 No. 22 overall draft choice will slot back into a depth defensive end role once able to return to action, but it's unclear whether that will occur in time for him to be activated for a Week 2 matchup against the Cowboys.
Harris (ankle) will be unavailable for Sunday's game versus the Seahawks, Will McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.
Harris was unable to practice all week, so it's unsurprising that he'll watch from the sidelines Sunday. The 2017 first-round pick has a ton to prove this season after he recorded just 3.5 sacks over his first three NFL seasons and the Falcons declined to pick up his fifth-year option, so a quick return to the field would be ideal for the defensive end.
Harris (ankle) did not participate during Monday's practice session, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
The 2017 first-round pick started in just eight of his 41 regular-season appearances as a Dolphin, generating a meager 3.5 combined sacks during that span. Now secured on the Falcons' 53-man roster as a depth option at defensive end, Harris' status for Sunday's game against the Seahawks remains questionable, as he has yet to make an appearance on the practice field this week.
The Falcons will decline Harris' fifth-year option for 2021, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The 25-year-old was acquired from the Dolphins on Friday in exchange for a seventh-round pick, and it's no surprise to see his new team declining the option. Harris, a 2017 first-round pick, had only 61 total tackles and 3.5 sacks in 41 contests with Miami, and he'll have one season in Atlanta to establish his value before hitting free agency.
Harris was traded by the Dolphins to the Falcons for a seventh-round pick on Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The former first-round pick underwhelmed through his first three professional seasons, leading Miami to part ways with him for next to nothing. Harris, 24, has 3.5 career sacks in 41 games. He'll have to battle for a roster spot as a situational pass-rusher in Atlanta.
Harris notched 23 tackles (11 solo) and a half sack across 14 regular-season games in 2019.
Harris has now struggled to compile anything resembling consistency as a run stopper for three straight seasons, leading to the Dolphins listing him as a healthy scratch for two of the final three games of 2019. He kicked off the year as a starting linebacker, but his role quickly diminished to a rotational/depth gig. The 2017 first-round pick will enter the final year of his rookie deal in 2020, though it does include a fifth-year option.
Harris (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Harris didn't suit up in last week's game for the same reason and will miss is second straight clash. The 2017 first-round pick has a disappointing 19 tackles (eight solo) and one sack this year.
Harris (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.
Harris saw only 33 defensive snaps over the last two games and is now a healthy scratch for the Dolphins. The 24-year-old has only a half-sack this season and only 3.5 sacks in his career, and he's yet to live up to his billing as a first-round pick in 2017.
Harris (wrist) is active for Sunday's Week 3 battle against the Cowboys.
Harris put in three full practices this past week, so he seemed like a fairly certain proposition to suit up. The 2017 first-round pick will look to help contain the likes of Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott in a game in which the Dolphins once again face long odds to remain competitive.
Harris (wrist) is active for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Harris managed to fully participate in practice all week, so his availability for Week 2 is unsurprising. The third-year pro will play his usual starting role at outside linebacker versus New England.
Harris (wrist) is considered questionable for Sunday's divisional matchup with the Patriots, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Harris was a full participant in each practice this week, so his questionable tag seems almost like a formality, barring an unexpected setback. The 24-year-old was considered questionable heading into last Sunday's contest as well, but he was able to play 61 defensive snaps. If Harris suits up as is seemingly expected, he'd slot back into his starting role at outside linebacker.
Harris (wrist) will be active for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens.
Even though Harris logged full practice sessions each day the past week, he still came into the game considered questionable while dealing with a wrist injury. Now that he's ready to roll, expect Harris to settle into a starting role at strongside linebacker for Sunday's game.
Harris notched four tackles (three solo) and 1.5 sacks in Friday's preseason game against the Buccaneers.
Harris got the start at defensive end and played a total of 30 snaps. He looks to be over the wrist injury that plagued him last month.
Harris (wrist) has yet to be cleared for the start of training camp, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.
The defensive end will play some linebacker this season -- a transition that will require as many reps as possible during training camp. Unfortunately, Harris may have to delay his debut at the new position as he continues to nurse a wrist injury. He was able to participate in individual drills during OTAs, so it's unlikely he would be completely cut off from drills come the end of the month.
