It’s not sounding good for Damien Harris, who suffered a thigh injury during the Patriots’ loss to the Vikings.
The Patriots left Minnesota on Thursday night with a heartbreaking 33-26 loss to the Vikings and a key injury on offense. Running back Damien Harris exited during the third quarter at U.S. Bank Stadium due to a thigh injury and didn’t return.
The star running back could be seen limping his way to the locker room:
After the game, reporters in the Patriots locker room spotted Harris on crutches.
The fourth-year pro had five carries for 16 yards before going down with the injury. The former third-round pick out of Alabama led the Patriots in rushing yards and touchdowns last year.
2nd-year RB Rhamondre Stevenson has emerged as one of the best all-around backs in the NFL, but it remains to be seen whether he can handle a huge workload without Harris behind him. Behind Stevenson on the 53-man roster are rookies Pierre Strong and Kevin Harris.
This is just overall bad news for a team that is getting set to face the Bills next week.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
