BOSTON (CBS) – The wait appears to be over for Patriots first round draft pick N’Keal Harry. The wide receiver is active for New England for their Week 11 clash with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Harry was placed on injured reserve after suffering an injury in the preseason. The rookie was added to the roster before New England’s Week 9 game against Baltimore, but was inactive for the contest.
The rookie will likely slot in as New England’s No. 4 receiver on Sunday, behind Julian Edelman, Mohamed Sanu and Phillip Dorsett on the depth chart. Receiver/punt returner Gunner Olszewski is among New England’s inactives against the Eagles.
Along with Edelman, Sanu and fellow rookie receiver Jakobi Meyers, Harry was spotted fielding punts during pregame warmups.
The New England secondary will be without safety Patrick Chung, as he’s inactive with chest and heel injuries. This will be the veteran’s third missed game of the season.
Also inactive for New England: running back Damien Harris, offensive lineman Korey Cunningham, quarterback Cody Kessler, defensive lineman Bryron Coward, and tight end Ryan Izzo.
One name not spotted on that list is special teamer Nate Ebner, who was questionable on Friday after he suffered ankle and back injuries during Monday’s practice. He missed Wednesday and Thursday’s practices, but returned on a limited basis on Friday.
One big name on Philadelphia’s inactive list is running back Jordan Howard. With receiver Alshon Jeffery ruled out on Friday, the Eagles will be without two of their best offensive players on Sunday.
The Patriots and Eagles square off at 4:25 p.m. on WBZ-TV.
