  • Kevin Harris: Joins New England practice squad

    The Patriots signed Harris to their practice squad Wednesday.

    New England's initial 53-man roster features Rhamondre Stevenson and Ezekiel Elliott as the team's only backfield options, but both Harris and Ty Montgomery are now back in the mix on the practice squad and could candidates to be promoted to New England's active roster ahead of Week 1. Harris appeared in five games for the Patriots as a rookie in 2022, carrying 18 times for 52 yards and a touchdown.

  • Kevin Harris: Let go by Patriots

    The Patriots have waived Harris, Jeremy Fowler of reports.

    Ahead of training camp, the 2022 sixth-rounder had been looking to secure a depth role behind top back Rhamondre Stevenson, but now that Ezekiel Elliott is also in the Patriots' backfield mix, Harris is the odd man out. If he goes unclaimed on waivers, he could resurface on the team's practice squad.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Starts, scores TD

    Harris started Friday's preseason game against the Titans and took seven carries for 17 yards and a touchdown.

    Pierre Strong made it back from concussion protocol but played deep into the fourth quarter, while top RBs Rhamondre Stevenson and Ezekiel Elliott were rested along with the rest of the starters. J.J. Taylor also got some snaps early in the game and finished with one carry for three yards and one catch for 10 yards. The Patriots likely will keep two RBs behind Stevenson and Elliott, with the candidates for depth roles being Harris, Strong, Taylor and Ty Montgomery (leg).

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Competing for depth role

    Harris is expected to compete for a depth role behind Rhamondre Stevenson along with Pierre Strong (undisclosed) and Ty Montgomery (leg) after the Patriots signed Ezekiel Elliott on Tuesday.

    Prior to the addition of Elliott, Harris was a candidate to secure early-down work when Stevenson needed a breather. However, with the proven veteran back now on board, Harris will now need to battle with Strong, Montgomery and even J.J. Taylor to earn complementary touches in New England's backfield to begin the season. Harris is thus off the fantasy lineup radar as long as both Stevenson and Elliott are healthy and available.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Garners eight carries

    Harris rushed eight times for 10 yards in Thursday night's 20-9 loss to the Texans in the preseason opener.

    Harris saw fellow tailback Pierre Strong start the game before coming in during New England's second offensive drive. While Strong totaled 33 yards on his nine touches, Harris barely averaged over one yard per carry and was not targeted. The two are competing for backup work behind Rhamondre Stevenson and both should get more chances in next Saturday's preseason game against Green Bay.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Working ahead of Pierre Strong

    Harris has logged more meaningful snaps in training camp than fellow second-year back Pierre Strong while Ty Montgomery (leg) has missed practice time, Chad Graff of the The Athletic reports.

    Rhamondre Stevenson's role as the team's top back isn't in any doubt, but Harris, Strong and Montgomery (when healthy) are in the mix to see complementary work this coming season. The Patriots could bring in a veteran such as Ezekiel Elliott to bolster their depth behind Stevenson, but if that doesn't happen, Harris could end up carving out a role as the primary backup in early-down situations.

  • Patriots' Kevin Harris: Fills in for Stevenson

    With Rhamondre Stevenson receiving a rest day, Harris took starting reps during Monday's practice, Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald reports.

    Ty Montgomery (leg) also was absent from Monday's session, setting the stage for Harris, Pierre Strong and J.J. Taylor to see added reps. While Harris isn't a threat to overtake Stevenson as the Patriots' top back, as things stand, he could end up being next in line for early-down work in the event that Stevenson misses time down the road. Meanwhile, Strong and Montgomery (when healthy) remain in the mix for change-of-pace work out of the team's backfield.
