Ready to go for wild-card round

Harris was a full participant at Thursday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Analysis: The 30-year-old missed the Cardinals' last two games of the regular season while dealing with a shoulder issue, but he returned to practice Thursday ahead of the team's wild-card matchup with the Rams on Monday. Harris played in 14 games this year, catching three passes for 10 yards while operating as a secondary option at tight end.

Sidelined again

Harris (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: Harris will miss his second consecutive contest due to the shoulder injury, even after logging limited practices both Thursday and Friday. Darrell Daniels and David Wells will take over behind Zach Ertz on the depth chart in Sunday's regular-season finale.

Questionable for Sunday

Harris (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday against the Seahawks, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Analysis: Harris was able to log limited practices Thursday and Friday, after not participating Wednesday. This is a trend in the right direction after he failed to suit up in Week 17 against Dallas or practice at all last week. If Harris can play, he'll be the Cardinals' No. 2 tight end, behind Zach Ertz. If he is forced to miss a second consecutive game, Darrell Daniels will step into a larger role.

Inactive Sunday

Harris (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Cowboys, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: Harris didn't practice in any capacity this week, so his status isn't surprising. In his absence, Darrell Daniels and David Wells will compete for backup snaps behind Zach Ertz.

Questionable against Cowboys

Harris (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Josh Weinfuss of reports.

Analysis: Harris has not participated in practice in any capacity leading up to Sunday's matchup against Dallas. Even if he manages to suit up, his impact on the offense will be minimal as he's managed only three receptions for 10 yards across 14 contests this season.

Dec 31, 2021 2:03 PM EST

Activated from reserve/COVID-19 list

Harris was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and is set to return for Sunday's contest against Carolina.

Analysis: With the acquisition of Zach Ertz two weeks ago, Harris expects to see a smaller role as Arizona's No. 2 tight end in his return from COVID-19 protocol. The veteran tight end has yet to catch a pass across three targets this season, giving him little fantasy value in Week 10.

Lands on reserve/COVID list

Harris tested positive for COVID and has been placed on the Cardinals' reserve/COVID-19 list, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

Analysis: Harris was expected to see a larger role after Maxx Williams (knee) was placed on IR with a season-ending injury. Instead, the Cardinals acquired Zach Ertz and Harris has remained limited. Expect Harris to miss at least next week, with his next chance to see the field likely being in Week 10 against the Panthers.

Could help replace Maxx Williams

Harris and Darrell Daniels are expected to step into elevated roles beginning with Sunday's game at Cleveland after top tight end Maxx Williams was placed on injured reserve Wednesday with a season-ending knee injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Analysis: In addition to Harris and Daniels, the Cardinals have Richard Rodgers as an option at tight end on the practice squad, and the team could also look to supplement its depth at the position through the trade market. Before sustaining the knee injury in the Week 5 win over the 49ers, Williams had surprisingly emerged as a key piece in the Arizona passing attack, tallying 16 receptions for 193 yards and a touchdown through the first five games. Neither Daniels nor Harris are expected to see that level of involvement in the passing game, but of the two, Harris might offer more upside from a fantasy perspective. Since entering the NFL in 2017, Daniels has mainly handled a blocking role, logging only 29 targets in 50 career games. The 30-year-old Harris, meanwhile, has put together a 79-799-9 line on 152 targets over 106 career contests, with all three of his 2021 targets coming on just 22 snaps Week 1 against the Titans.

Heading to Arizona

Harris signed a contract with the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Analysis: Harris heads to the desert after spending last season with the Bears, where he recorded seven receptions for 45 yards across 15 games. The 30-year-old tight end will be competing for a reserve role on the Cardinals behind the likes of Maxx Williams and Darrell Daniels.

Aug 10, 2021 8:20 PM EST

All clear for regular-season finale

Harris (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Analysis: Harris was unavailable Week 16 as the Bears got a win in Jacksonville, but he provided a pair of limited practices Thursday and Friday of this week to follow up a full session Wednesday. The 29-year-old has officially received the green light for Chicago's regular-season finale, meaning he'll stay with just one game absence on the year. He enters the divisional tilt against Green Bay with seven catches for 45 yards over 14 appearances this season.

Jan 3, 2021 12:20 PM EST

Questionable Week 17

Harris (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Analysis: The 29-year-old practiced as a full participant Wednesday but regressed the limited participation the past two days. Harris sat out last week's win over the Jaguars due to the foot injury.

Jan 1, 2021 11:46 AM EST

Returns to full practice

Harris (foot) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, suggesting he's over the injury that sidelined him for last week's win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: Harris' return to practice paves the way for him to suit up in Sunday's season finale against the Packers. With Jimmy Graham and Cole Kmet both solidly above him on the tight end depth chart, Harris' role is likely to remain limited.

Dec 30, 2020 12:42 PM EST

Can't go against Jaguars

Harris (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Analysis: After initially being considered doubtful, the Bears officially ruled Harris out this week. The 29-year-old tight end hasn't played double-digit snaps on offense since Week 7, so his absence will mainly affect special teams.

Dec 26, 2020 2:17 PM EST

Doubtful for Week 16

Harris (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Larry Mayer of the Bears' official site reports.

Analysis: Harris went down during last week's game against the Vikings. While he managed to make it back to the practice field in a limited capacity Friday, Harris apparently didn't do enough to inspire confidence in his ability to suit up Sunday.

Dec 25, 2020 9:50 AM EST

Dealing with ankle injury

Harris is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Vikings due to an ankle injury, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Analysis: The 29-year-old sustained the injury during the first half of Sunday's divisional matchup. J.P. Holtz will operate as Chicago's third tight end if Harris can't retake the field.

Dec 20, 2020 11:06 AM EST

Hauls in two passes

Harris caught two of three targets for 15 yards during Monday's loss to the Rams.

Analysis: The 29-year-old played only 18 of 63 offensive snaps, so he was moderately involvement in the passing game despite limited snaps. It was Harris' lowest snap total of the year as he continues to operate in a depth role. He has seven catches for 45 yards through seven games and is unlikely to be much of a factor in fantasy even if starter Jimmy Graham were to suffer an injury.

Oct 27, 2020 2:11 PM EST

Hauls in three passes

Harris caught three passes for 15 yards in the Bears' 30-26 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Analysis: Harris now has seen five targets on the season, and his three receptions represent his only production over the first three games of 2020. Based on his current usage, his fantasy value is extremely low.

Sep 27, 2020 3:29 PM EST

Posts no stats

Harris was targeted once in the Bears' 27-23 victory over Detroit on Sunday.

Analysis: Harris was targeted in the end zone and could've scored a touchdown, but the ball was slightly overthrown. As the third tight end in a low-volume passing attack, it would likely take an injury for him to see enough targets to become a fantasy option.

Sep 13, 2020 2:44 PM EST

Lands in Chicago

Harris signed a contract with the Bears on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Harris was cut by the Browns on Monday, and he wasted little time in agreeing to terms with the Bears. The 28-year-old tight end, who previously spent time with head coach Matt Nagy while in Kansas City, now joins a Chicago tight end corps that's struggled to attain consistency with Trey Burton (hip) and Adam Shaheen (foot) in back-to-back seasons. He caught 15 passes for 149 yards and three touchdowns across 15 games in Cleveland last year.

Feb 19, 2020 2:21 PM EST

Cut by Cleveland

The Browns cut Harris on Monday, the team's official website reports.

Analysis: Harris signed a two-year, $6 million contract last offseason, coming over from Kansas City after five seasons in a depth role behind Travis Kelce. The 28-year-old played 55.6 percent of offensive snaps for the Browns in 2019, but he was limited to a 15-149-3 receiving line on 27 targets, dropping five passes along the way. Harris may need to battle for a roster spot with his next team, while the Browns are left with David Njoku, Ricky Seals-Jones (RFA), Stephen Carlson and Pharaoh Brown (ERFA) at tight end.
