Waived by Washington

The Commanders waived Harmon on Tuesday.

Analysis: Harmon signed a reserve/future contract with Washington at the conclusion of last season, but he'll likely have to settle for another practice squad gig in 2022. The 2019 sixth-round pick hasn't logged a regular-season snap since his rookie campaign in 2019, when he caught 30 passes for 365 yards and zero touchdowns across 16 appearances.

Remains in Washington

Harmon signed a reserve/future contract with Washington on Monday.

Analysis: Harmon didn't see game action in 2021 and spent most of the season on Washington's practice squad. He hasn't seen game action since his rookie campaign in 2019, when he caught 30 passes for 365 yards and zero touchdowns in 16 games.

Back with Washington

Washington re-signed Harmon to the practice squad Wednesday.

Analysis: Harmon was released from the practice squad just one day ago, but he now returns to the scout team with Chris Blewitt having been promoted. The 2019 sixth-round pick hasn't suited up for NFL action since his rookie season.

Jettisoned from practice squad

Washington cut Harmon from the practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: Harmon, a 2019 sixth-round pick, has not suited up for NFL action since playing 16 games in his rookie season. The former North Carolina State standout will now turn his attention toward carving out a role elsewhere in the league, perhaps with a team that doesn't possess as much depth at wide receiver as Washington.

Back with Washington practice squad

Harmon has signed a deal to join Washington's practice squad.

Analysis: After getting drafted by Washington in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, Harmon was cut by the team midway through August. The receiver will rejoin the team, however, this time on the practice squad. With Curtis Samuel coming off the IR list soon, Harmon likely won't get pulled up to Washington's active roster anytime soon.

Let go by Washington

Harmon has been released by Washington, John Keim of reports.

Analysis: Coach Ron Rivera noted that Harmon's release is indicative of Washington's depth at the wideout position. As JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington points out, the timing of the move gives Harmon -- who had been working mostly with the squad's third-teamers -- a chance to sign elsewhere and make a run at a 53-man roster spot.

Back from knee injury

Harmon (knee) practiced in pads Sunday, Nicki Jhablava of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: The leg injury that had bothered Harmon has been specified as a knee injury, but either way, he's over it and back at practice. The 2019 sixth-round pick should suit up in Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots.

Aug 8, 2021 6:59 PM EST

Tending to leg injury

Harmon (leg) isn't taking part in Friday's practice, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Harmon left Thursday's session early with what was termed a leg injury, per John Keim of After missing all of last season due to a torn ACL suffered July 2020, Harmon was able to participate in the offseason program and early stages of training camp, but now another issue of unknown severity is keeping him on the sideline.

Returns from ACL tear

Harmon (knee) is practicing at OTAs, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Making his way back from the ACL tear he suffered last July, the young wideout reportedly caught everyone's attention with a diving catch during Wednesday's practice. Harmon was one of the favorites for the No. 2 receiver job in Washington at this time last year, but in 2021 he'll be part of a deep group competing for the third and fourth spots behind Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel. Competition for those roles includes Adam Humphries, Cam Sims and Antonio Gandy-Golden.

Beginning year on NFI list

Harmon (knee) was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list Saturday.

Analysis: Harmon sustained a torn ACL in July and will miss the 2020 season, so he'll remain on the NFI list this year. The 2019 sixth-round pick performed well in his rookie season with a 30-365-0 line, so he'll set his focus on getting back to full health for 2021. Dontrelle Inman and Antonio Gandy-Golden will battle for reps on the outside, across from Terry McLaurin.

Sep 5, 2020 5:25 PM EST

Moved to NFI list

Washington placed Harmon (knee) on the active/non-football injury list Monday.

Analysis: During preparations for his second pro campaign, Harmon suffered a torn ACL, ensuring he won't see the field in 2020. As a rookie sixth-rounder last season, he capped it with a 22-290-0 line on 35 targets over the final seven games. Look for Antonio Gandy-Golden, a fourth-round pick this year, to help pick up the slack on the outside opposite Terry McLaurin.

Tears ACL

Harmon suffered a torn ACL while training this summer, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The 2019 sixth-round pick enjoyed a solid finish to his rookie season, averaging 3.1 catches for 41.4 yards on 5.0 targets over the final seven games. Harmon was expected to compete for a starting job during training camp, but he'll instead turn his focus to rehabbing for 2021. He had surgery last week and says he's doing well. Meanwhile, rookie fourth-round pick Antonio Gandy-Golden now has a better chance to earn outside snaps.

Facing competition from rookies

Harmon could face competition from rookie draft picks Antonio Gibson (third round) and Antonio Gandy-Golden,'s John Keim reports.

Analysis: Gibson is arguably more of a threat to slot man Steven Sims or even passing-down back J.D. McKissic, while Gandy-Golden is a direct competitor for the perimeter snaps that went to Harmon throughout the second half of last season. The 2019 sixth-round pick finished his rookie season with a 68.2 percent catch rate and 8.3 yards per target, but he never became a player that demanded heavy volume, drawing no more than six targets in any one game. Harmon has the advantage of NFL experience, but Gandy-Golden is the better prospect coming out of college, and both will need to learn a new system under offensive coordinator Scott Turner.

Finishes year with 365 yards

Harmon caught three of five targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 47-16 loss to Dallas, finishing his rookie season with 30 receptions for 365 yards on 44 targets.

Analysis: The sixth-round pick had no more than 58 yards in any game and never scored a touchdown, but he did play at least 66 percent of offensive snaps in seven consecutive games to close out the season, averaging 3.1 catches for 41.4 yards on 5.0 targets over that stretch. While fellow rookies Terry McLaurin and Steven Sims were far more interesting for fantasy managers, Harmon did well to catch 68.2 percent of his chances for 8.3 yards per target in an offense that finished the season with a 62.2 completion percentage and 6.7 yards per pass attempt. Harmon should have a chance at a starting job in 2020, presumably competing for the outside spot across from McLaurin while Sims continues to man the slot.

Delivers season-best yardage

Harmon caught five of six passes for 58 yards and completed his lone pass attempt for 11 yards during Sunday's 41-35, overtime loss to the Giants.

Analysis: Harmon provided his most productive outing of the season as he finished second among Washington's wide receivers in offensive snaps, only one snap behind Terry McLaurin. The rookie sixth-round pick has enjoyed a strong second half of the season working as the team's No. 3 wide receiver, catching 19 passes for 257 yards in the last six games.

Dec 23, 2019 10:13 AM EST

Two receptions in start

Harmon recorded two receptions for 22 yards in Sunday's loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: Harmon got the start Sunday alongside Terry McLaurin and Steven Sims after Paul Richardson (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve. The rookie now has 14 receptions for 199 yards in the past five contests and could see his reps continue to climb over the final two games of the year.

Dec 16, 2019 9:04 PM EST

Filling in for Richardson

Harmon is expected to start in Washington's final three games of the season after Paul Richardson (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site

Analysis: Harmon had already been seeing starter-level snaps while Richardson missed three of the Redskins' previous four games and was pulled early in the other due to injury. Between those four contests, Harmon combined to produce 12 receptions for 177 yards and no touchdowns on 21 targets. Though Harmon should draw a decent amount of targets the rest of the way, he'll likely struggle to translate those looks into useful fantasy production while rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins directs one of the NFL's least proficient passing attacks.

Dec 15, 2019 9:11 AM EST

Catches long pass

Harmon caught one for four targets for 30 yards during Sunday's 20-15 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: The 21-year-old got down to the two-yard line with his 30-yard reception in the second quarter, setting up a Washington touchdown. Harmon actually ranked second among Redskins wideouts with 55 offensive snaps (behind Terry McLaurin), though Steven Sims was still more involved with four catches on seven targets. The rookie sixth-round pick could continue seeing a higher snap share if Paul Richardson (hamstring) and Trey Quinn (concussion) remain sidelined, but the inconsistencies of Washington's passing game make him an unreliable option.

Dec 9, 2019 1:24 PM EST

Ready for another start

Harmon is poised for another start, with Paul Richardson (hamstring) ruled out for Sunday's game in Green Bay, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site reports.

Analysis: Harmon played at least two-third of offensive snaps each of the past three weeks, averaging 3.7 catches for 49 yards on 5.7 targets. He's made a nice case to keep his starting job if/when Richardson returns from the hamstring injury, but it's difficult to find fantasy upside in a passing game led by rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

Dec 6, 2019 10:13 AM EST

Leads team in receiving

Harmon caught three of five targets for 51 yards in Sunday's 29-21 win over the Panthers.

Analysis: With Paul Richardson inactive due to a hamstring injury, Harmon played 84 percent of snaps on offense en route to leading the team in both targets and receiving yards. It was his third week in a row with five or more targets and 43 or more yards, with the NC State product emerging as a solid complement to fellow rookie Terry McLaurin, who caught two of four passes for eight yards in Sunday's game. There's a good chance McLaurin and Harmon will continue to take most of the snaps even if Richardson returns to health for Week 14 at Green Bay.
