Deonte Harris: Nabs 50-yard pass in loss

Harris brought in his lone target for 50 yards in the Saints' 26-20 overtime loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

Analysis: The fleet-footed rookie recorded his longest catch on the year, hauling in a 50-yarder from Taysom Hill in Sunday's loss. He ended his first NFL season with just six receptions for 24 yards, though he played a key role on special teams as a punt returner, scoring a punt-return touchdown in Week 3 against Seattle.

Deonte Harris: Makes catch in victory

Harris caught his lone target for a one-yard gain in Monday night's 34-7 win over the Colts.

Analysis: Harris played nine snaps on offense, one more than he saw on special teams. While the rookie has not made a major impact yet in his young career, he can take solace in the fact that he's caught every one of his five targets on the season.

Deonte Harris: Active Thursday

Harris (hamstring) is active for Thursday night's game against the Falcons, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Analysis: Harris returns after a two-game absence. It is not certain if he will slide immediately back into his regular return role after turning in only limited practices during the week.

Deonte Harris: Questionable for Thursday

Harris (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Thursday's contest against the Falcons, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Analysis: Harris logged a trio of limited practices this week. If he were forced to miss any time, Taysom Hill and Alvin Kamara would take over fielding kick and punt returns, respectively.

Deonte Harris: Limited Tuesday

Harris was limited in Tuesday's practice, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Analysis: Harris has been credited with two straight limited practices this week in what is a good sign for his availability for Thursday. On the other hand, he has already missed two games with the issue and is looking at a third if he can't ramp up his participation level Wednesday.

Deonte Harris: Estimated as limited participant

Harris (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant on Monday's estimated injury report, Luke Johnson of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Analysis: Harris hasn't practiced over the last two weeks and missed those respective games, so the fact he was expected to practice Monday indicates at least some progress. The 21-year-old likely would return to returning kicks if he can play Thursday, but there should be a better idea of his status after the next two days of practice.

Deonte Harris: Out for Week 12

Harris (hamstring) has been declared out for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Analysis: Harris was unable to practice at all during the week and will be forced to sit out a second consecutive game. Taysom Hill and Ted Ginn should fill in returning kicks.

Deonte Harris: Won't play Week 11

Harris (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Harris was unable to practice this week and will miss his first game of the season. Taysom Hill is listed as the next man up for kick returns and Alvin Kamara for punt returns, but Ted Ginn could also be utilized.

Deonte Harris: Misses practice again

Harris (hamstring) did not participate in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Missing two straight practices with a leg injury for a returner is never a good sign for his prospects of playing Sunday. Harris will need to put in at least limited work Friday in order to be considered a better bet to play.

Deonte Harris: Can't practice Wednesday

Harris (hamstring) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Harris is a new name on the injury report, as he's suited up all nine games so far. The undrafted rookie rarely takes the field on offense, but he's made quite an impact as a returner with 23.8 yards per kick return 9.7 yards per punt return, ranking seventh and fifth in the league, respectively. Taysom Hill, Alvin Kamara and Ted Ginn could fill those duties if Harris is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Deonte Harris: Loses seven yards

Harris lost seven yards on his lone reception during Sunday's 27-9 loss to the Rams. He added three punt returns for 34 yards.

Analysis: Harris' first career reception probably wasn't all that he had hoped as he put together negative fantasy points. Things don't look too promising for Week 3. Drew Brees (thumb) is out and the Saints have a tough test against the Seahawks defense and the 12th Man.
