Sources tell NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport that the New England Patriots running back will be activated from injured reserve and is set to play on Sunday vs. the Houston Texans.

Harris, who stepped in after Michel injured his quad in a win over the Las Vegas Raiders on September 27, leads the Patriots with 471 yards on 85 carries (5.5 avg.) with one touchdown. He has been dealing with a quad injury. It's unclear if he'll take over starting running back duties in his first game back from injury.

The New England Patriots are not afraid to let wide receivers throw passes, and the Baltimore Ravens know that as well as any National Football League team. Meanwhile, the Patriots rank third in the National Football League in rushing yards per game (161.1), and seventh in average yards per carry (4.8). He totaled 1,006 yards from scrimmage in 2019 with seven touchdowns. Emailed daily. Always free!
