Patriots WR N'Keal Harry suffered a lower-body injury in Thursday night's preseason opener. He remained on the sideline for the rest of the game, which usually means the injury isn't serious. The Boston Herald's Kevin Duffy hears, though, that Harry will "likely" miss some practice time. The rookie is expected to be ready for Week 1, but he was already seemingly behind Phillip Dorsett and Jakobi Meyers on the depth chart (in addition to Julian Edelman). Harry remains a high-end prospect but won't be an early-season fantasy option.

The Patriots have activated WR N'Keal Harry from IR. He's eligible to play Sunday night against the Ravens but isn't likely to claim a significant offensive role anytime soon. New England has Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett and Mohamed Sanu in place as the top 3 wideouts. Harry's first step will be fighting fellow rookie Jakobi Meyers for the 4th WR role.

Patriots WR N'Keal Harry returned to practice on Tuesday. He was placed on IR prior to Week 1 after battling a variety of lower-body injuries this summer. The 1st-round rookie will be eligible to play starting in Week 9 and could find immediate opportunity if WRs Josh Gordon and Phillip Dorsett are still banged up. Harry is worth stashing in deep fantasy leagues.

The Patriots are placing rookie WR N'Keal Harry on IR for an ankle injury he has been battling, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. The Pats reportedly expect Harry to return this season. His deactivation clears a roster spot for WR Demaryius Thomas. Schefter reports New England has already agreed to a new 1-year deal with the veteran the team cut Saturday. Expect Thomas to have a decent-sized role Sunday night against the Steelers.

Patriots WR N'Keal Harry is still moving "gingerly," according to insider Andrew Callahan. The rookie suffered a lower-body injury in the preseason opener about 2-and-a-half weeks ago and hasn't done much since. It's believed he's dealing with a hamstring injury, a toe injury, or both. Harry was off to an inconsistent start even before this issue and seems unlikely to play a significant early-season role.

The Patriots selected Arizona State WR N’Keal Harry with the 32nd pick of the 2019 NFL Draft. The #1 WR in the 2016 recruiting class led the Sun Devils in catches and receiving TDs as a true freshman. Then he busted out for 82 grabs, 1,142 yards and 8 scores as a sophomore. The catches and yards both ranked top 14 in the country. Harry posted a 73-1,088-9 line this past season, accounting for 32.0% of Arizona State’s receptions, 37.6% of the receiving yards and 47.4% of the receiving TDs. Those market shares rank 4th, 6th and 5th among the 48 WRs invited to this year’s Combine. The 6’3, 225-pounder ran a 4.53-second 40-yard dash with a 38.5-inch vertical in Indianapolis to earn a 75th percentile SPARQ score. The tape shows a guy who’s dominant in contested situations and dangerous after the catch. Harry was the #1 player in our Pre-Draft Dynasty Rookie Rankings and will very likely stay there in the post-draft list. He has a clear path to 2019 fantasy value in a WR corps consisting of Julian Edelman, Demaryius Thomas and Phillip Dorsett.
