Harris was previously listed as questionable for Sunday’s game at Hard Rock Stadium with an ankle injury. Moncrief was listed with a thigh injury.
The second-year running back out of Alabama left last Thursday’s loss to the Rams in the fourth quarter. He rushed 11 times for 50 yards prior to that. He had gone seven straight games with at least 12 touches and averaged 4.94 yards per carry from Weeks 8-14.
Moncrief, who was recently signed to the Patriots’ main roster off the practice squad, made one catch for 15 yards in four games prior to the injury.
Elsewhere on offense, WR Julian Edelman continues to recover from a knee procedure and reportedly will not be activated for Sunday. OT Jermaine Eluemunor (ankle), OT Justin Herron (ankle), OG Shaq Mason (calf), RB J.J. Taylor (quad), and RB James White (foot) were all listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report.
Assuming there are no surprises and Taylor and TE Jordan Thomas are inactive, as they were last week, here are the projected depth charts at the Patriots’ skill positions for Sunday…
Running Back: James White, Sony Michel, Jakob Johnson
Wide Receiver: Jakobi Meyers, Damiere Byrd, N’Keal Harry, Gunner Olszewski
Tight End: Dalton Keene, Devin Asiasi
Keene and Asiasi saw increased roles against the Rams following the placement of TE Ryan Izzo on IR, so it will be interesting to see if they are further incorporated into the Patriots’ offensive attack in Miami.
