The New England Patriots have been a bit short on receiving weapons this season. But in Week 11, they're finally going to have the services of their first-round pick.
According to NFL Network's Mike Giardi, N'Keal Harry will be active for the Patriots' Sunday game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
WR N'Keal Harry is expected to make his #Patriots debut this afternoon vs the #Eagles. The first rounder has been practicing since October 15th (coming off IR) and was placed on the active roster the day before the #Ravens game but then didn't dress.— Michael Giardi (@MikeGiardi) November 17, 2019
Harry was the 32nd pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and was the first receiver to be taken in the first round by Bill Belichick. Harry posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in his final two years at Arizona State and scored 18 combined touchdowns over that span.
Harry impressed during Patriots camp and caught two passes for 36 yards in the preseason before missing time with the ankle injury that sidelined him until the midpoint of the season.
It's unclear exactly what Harry's role will be for the team out of the gate. That said, the team will likely find a way to mix the big, physical receiver into the receiver rotation along with Julian Edelman, Mohamed Sanu, and Phillip Dorsett.
