Patriots receive encouraging injury update on N’Keal Harry

New England Patriots, N'Keal Harry

While the New England Patriots took care of business in their preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles with a 35-0 win, the team did come away from the contest with one notable injury scare.

Patriots wide receiver N’Keal Harry was forced to leave the game in the second quarter after suffering an apparent minor shoulder injury. He attempted to make a dramatic diving catch to extend a drive but wound up hitting the ground hard instead.

Now, as noted by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Patriots have some promising news regarding Harry as medical tests revealed no structural damage to his shoulder. Schefter further added that Harry will be week-to-week for the moment and will simply need to rest the injury.

At the least, Harry’s preseason may be all over with, especially as the Patriots have a mere one such game remaining, which will come against the New York Giants on Aug. 29.

For the moment, it is not yet known on the sense of optimism that the team currently has in Harry’s possible availability for the Week 1 opener against the Miami Dolphins.

Harry comes into the season with hefty expectations following a pair of underwhelming campaigns with the team. After publicly requesting a trade in the offseason, all signs currently point to the former first-round pick remaining with New England for the start of the season.

Whether under Cam Newton or rookie Mac Jones, Harry will surely look to make the most out of his third season with the Patriots.
