According to NFL Network Insider on Tuesday, running back Damien Harris of the New England Patriots will probably miss a number of games after hurting his hamstring during Sunday’s victory over the Detroit Lions. According to a source with knowledge of the issue, Harris is still having testing to establish the extent of the injury, but it is anticipated that the fourth-year running back will miss some time. Currently, there is no official word on the matter.
The running back played six plays in Sunday’s 29-0 victory before leaving with an injury. During that time, he carried the ball four times for 11 yards and caught one pass for one yard. Harris has 57 carries for 257 yards and three touchdowns so far this season. Rhamondre Stevenson, who ran for 161 yards on 25 runs on Sunday, is expected to get the most of the job out of the Patriots’ backfield in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns with Harris out injured.
