Patriots running back Damien Harris was in and out of Sunday’s win over the Texans, but he reportedly avoided a serious injury.

Harris hurt his chest, returned to the game, and then left for good after hurting his ribs. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that tests on both injuries have not shown any sign of significant injury and that Harris can be considered day-to-day heading into New England’s Week Six game against the Cowboys.

Harris ran 14 times for 58 yards and a touchdown against Houston. He has 63 carries for 230 yards and two touchdowns over the entire season.

Rhamondre Stevenson and Brandon Bolden also saw action on Sunday. J.J. Taylor was inactive after playing in the previous three games.

  1. I recorded the game and need to watch again. But Stevensen seemed sluggish and even a bit tentative. He was looking great before right up to his fumble which was IMHO due to lack of focus and effort and glad Belichick came down hard on it. I would like to see him return to that performance since maybe he learned to pay attention to the ball now.
