The Saints placed Harbor (undisclosed) on injured reserve Monday, Nick Underhill of The Advocate reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harbor and the Saints agreed to a contract during the offseason. The veteran was competing for a spot on the final roster. The specifics of his injury are unclear, but he now will spend the entire 2017 season on the IR.

Harbor signed a contract with the Saints on Monday, NOLA.com's Josh Katzenstein reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite being 30 years old, Harbor participated in the Saints' rookie minicamp over the weekend and flashed enough to land a contract. However, he enters a crowded tight end corps and will need to earn himself a roster spot ahead of the regular season opener.

Harbor secured both of his targets for 16 yards Sunday against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

With Eric Ebron (knee) and Brandon Pettigrew (knee - ACL) still out of commission, only a trio of Harbor, Khari Lee and Cole Wick remained to make up the Lions' tight end corps Sunday. Out of those three, Harbor was the only one to see any attention at all in the passing game, and that's now been the case for two consecutive weeks. The Missouri State product hasn't been able to carve out a significant target share amongst all Lions pass catchers, though, as Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and Anquan Boldin have operated as QB Matthew Stafford's go-to options downfield. Such a trend is unlikely to change anytime soon, and with both Ebron and Pettigrew each nearing a return, Harbor's receiving totals only stand to decrease in the coming weeks.

Harbor secured his only target for three yards Sunday against the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Even with top tight end Eric Ebron (knee) inactive, Harbor remained almost completely uninvolved in the passing game. Golden Tate, Anquan Boldin and Marvin Jones dominated the available targets -- a common trend this season -- and, along with Andre Roberts, were each on the receiving end of one of QB Matthew Stafford's four touchdown passes. Its unclear if Ebron will return in Week 7, but Harbor doesn't project to be a significant fantasy contributor regardless.

Harbor is signing with the Lions, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Released by New England on Sunday, the 29-year-old Harbor didn't take long to find a new home. The signing could put Orson Charles or Khari Lee in jeopardy of losing a roster spot.

The Patriots have released Harbor, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Harbor no longer in the mix, the Patriots' TE corps is now comprised of top options Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett, with AJ Derby and Greg Scruggs in reserve.

Per ESPN's Mike Reiss, Harbor was on the field for 22 of the Patriots' 80 snaps on offense in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

In the process, Harbor was not targeted, which underscores the reality that he'll only merit fantasy consideration in the event that both Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett are sidelined.

Harbor is in uniform for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Rob Gronkowski still out and AJ Derby scratched Sunday, Harbor is on hand to back up Martellus Bennett at tight end for the Patriots on Sunday.

Harbor is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

With starter Rob Gronkowski out with an injury and Harbor inactive, Martellus Bennett and A.J. Derby are in line to handle the Patriots' Week 1 tight end duties.

Harbor is not on the Patriots' Week 1 practice participation/injury report.

EDGE Analysis

Top tight end Rob Gronkowski was limited at practice Wednesday, but we'd be surprised if he was unable to play this weekend. In any case, with Martellus Bennett also in the mix, both Harbor and A.J. Derby remain speculative fantasy plays.
