After 10 weeks of waiting, N’Keal Harry Time is officially upon the Patriots, as the rookie wideout is expected to suit up and make his NFL debut in Sunday’s head-to-head with the Eagles, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
It’s a debut that’s been a long time coming too, as the 21-year-old Harry began his NFL career on the injured reserve with an ankle injury, and was inactive for the team’s Week 9 meeting with the Ravens. But it’s not a wait that’s bothered Harry or made him think twice about his attempted to push through the pain during the preseason.
“I don’t have any regrets,” Harry said earlier this week when talking about trying to play through his injury. “I don’t need to ‘show’ anything. Going out there and playing hard, playing through stuff, that’s just the type of mentality I have and that’s just the type of mindset I grew up having. So, it wasn’t me trying to show toughness or anything, that’s just me.”
Harry, drafted with the No. 32 overall pick in 2019, totaled 73 catches for 1,088 yards and nine touchdowns in 12 games with Arizona State last year.
The Patriots come into Sunday’s game looking to get back on track after a Week 9 primetime loss to the Ravens.
