Through the first three games of the 2021 season, the New England Patriots’ offense has been fairly mediocre. However, with N’Keal Harry back in the lineup, the passing game could get a boost this Sunday.
The Patriots officially activated Harry from injured reserve on Saturday. As a result, he’ll be able to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Harry was placed on injured reserve in early September after suffering a shoulder injury during the preseason.
Earlier this year, Harry requested a trade due to his dissatisfaction with his current role. However, the Arizona State product’s wish was never granted by the Patriots.
Fast forward to today, and Harry will almost certainly be asked to assist New England’s offense against a talented Tampa Bay defense on Sunday night.
The Patriots have activated WR N’Keal Harry off of injured reserve, making him eligible to play tomorrow night against the Bucs, per source.

Harry had 45 receptions for 414 yards and four touchdowns in his first two seasons with the Patriots. He hasn’t quite lived up to the hype so far, but he still has time to turn things around. With James White out for the season, the Patriots require a shrewd playmaker who can create something out of nothing on any given play. If given the opportunity, Harry could be that type of Patriots player.
It’ll be fascinating to see what kind of role Harry plays against the Buccaneers on Sunday night. That is, assuming he is available for the game. Nokia News
