He hurt his foot after totaling 23 rushing yards and a touchdown reception in a 23-20 victory for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Harris had a dominant rookie season in 2021, totaling 1,200 yards rushing, 467 receiving yards, and 10 touchdowns. He earned team captain honors before his sophomore campaign, and the coaching staff expects great things from him. As a former first-round selection in the 2021 NFL Draft, Harris was listed as ‘questionable’ for Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.

Jordan Schultz, an NFL insider, reported the test on Harris’ foot returned negative.

Pittsburgh believes there is a ‘good chance’ he will play against the Patriots. Harris will battle several of his former Alabama teammates, including Christian Barmore, Mack Wilson, Mac Jones, and Damien Harris.
