N’Keal Harry practicing with Patriots

Patriots rookie wide receiver N'Keal Harry became eligible to return to practice this week and the Patriots didn’t waste any time getting him on the field.

Harry is practicing with the team on Tuesday as they get back to work after a break following last Thursday’s win over the Giants. The first-round pick was placed on injured reserve after the team made the cut to 53 players at the end of August.

He’s able to practice for the next two weeks and become eligible to play in a game once he’s spent eight weeks on the list.

“I think the fairest thing to do for any young player, especially a guy that’s missed as much time as N’Keal has missed, is we have to get him back on the practice field,” offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said in a Monday press conference. “We have to make smart decisions about when he’s ready to do what. Certainly, to put a player back in a position to say, ‘Hey, do everything, and do it all well, and do it all well under pressure, and do it all well under pressure against seven different defensive looks that you might get,’ and different personnel on the field each week that he hasn’t necessarily played against – I think there’s things that hopefully we can build into and do quicker than others.”

The Patriots can designate two players to return from injured reserve. Left tackle Isaiah Wynn is believed to be the likeliest choice for the other spot.

  1. Once Harry, Wynn & Watson are up and running this offense will at least be able to give the league’s best defense a few rests, and turn those measly Pats 30-burgers back into 40-burgers.

    How long before Harry gets issued his decoder ring, listening device, and spy camera?

    Which one of the 31 losing teams do you root for? Transparency helps!

  3. The question is, who gets cut when they need a roster spot for him?

    There really isn’t a clear cut answer.

    How much is the rent BB charges you?

  5. Because the Patriots are the winningest team in the modern NFL era, it is a steady source of humor to read how weak-minded fans continual to find ill rational comfort in their belief the Patriots must be cheating to keep winning while under the watchful eyes of the NFL, the media, the owners, the coaches, and players including the unhappy ones released or traded away from the Patriots.
    Come on, this supposed conspiracy that allows the Pats to cheat and dominate the NFL has far too many people involved to keep anything secret.

    You said the same thing about Phillip Dorsett and now Dorsett has a ring and is helping the Pats yet again.

    Enjoy!

    A bust? It’s a little pre-mature to put him in Canton yet.

  8. Didn’t like Harry coming out of college and was happy when the Pats used a 1st on him. He didn’t really show well in TC or the preseason either. There were stories about him falling down the depth chart even then. I don’t know why Pats fans are so hype he’s returning. Good luck with that though.

    BB has quite the knack of drafting guys who get hurt.

    As does the rest of the league. Football is a contact sport, people get hurt. Most players have fairly short careers.

    Prove your statement or are you just spewing nonsense again? Sounds like the nonsense again.

  11. I’m not expecting a whole lot from Harry right off the bat. It usually takes time for a receiver to gain Brady’s trust and they simply are not thrown to very much until that trust is realized. However, as the season goes on the offense will incrementally improve week in and week out, they’ll get Wynn back in a few weeks also, and with the defense being what it is, I think the Patriots will be a juggernaut going into the playoffs with only 1 or 2 loses in the regular season.

  12. Dorsett is reliable when he gets his hands on the ball, but he just doesn’t get separation. Decent 4th WR at best. I wouldn’t expect too much from NHarry either. He’ll help a little, but even his college coach said he’s too raw for the Pats offense as a rookie. He’ll be good next year. The only rookie WR I ever saw pick it up quickly for the Pats was DBranch. Even he wasn’t great his rookie year. Pats need Edelman to stay healthy and Gordon to stay on the straight and narrow.
