Kevin Harris will be on the New England Patriots active 53-man roster this week against the Cleveland Browns.

Harris, a former sixth-round pick (183rd overall) of the Patriots in the 2022 NFL Draft, is taking over a spot for the injured Damien Harris. Harris is expected to miss several weeks with a hamdstring issue.

Kevin Harris played at South Carolina and rushed for 1,138 yards and 15 touchdowns in his junior year.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick spoke with the local media and explained why Harris was being promoted.

Harris scored a touchdown in the Patriots preseason opener. He has spent all year on the practice squad.
