Harris caught one of two targets for two yards and scored a touchdown in Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Rams in Week 3.

EDGE Analysis

Harris has moved up the depth chart in the wake of David Njoku's wrist injury, which will keep him out until Week 12 at the least. He played 90 percent of the offensive snaps (65 of 72) and will be the beneficiary of Njoku's absence as long as he stays healthy. The downside is that he's been targeted just three times over 132 snaps, although both of Sunday's targets did come in the red zone.

Harris is expected to be the Browns' primary tight end after the placement of David Njoku (wrist) on injured reserve, Andrew Gribble of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

In the aftermath of his awkward fall during Monday's win against the Jets, Njoku was diagnosed with both a concussion and broken wrist. With a lengthy absence on tap, he'll yield the top spot on the TE depth chart to Harris, who turned 78 percent of the offensive snaps in that game into one catch (on one target) for four yards. Harris' time in Kansas City likely is more indicative of his ability, as he averaged 10.6 YPC and scored six touchdowns on 107 targets. Behind Harris, the Browns also roster Pharaoh Brown and Ricky Seals-Jones.

Harris is facing opportunity for increased targets with David Njoku nursing a broken wrist, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harris saw increased work during Monday's win over the Jets after Njoku left the game due to injuries, playing 54 snaps (78 percent). He played only 13 snaps (18 percent) Week 1. With Njoku expected to miss at least a month, possibly more should he need to undergo surgery, Harris could be worth fantasy consideration in tight end premium formats. Pharaoh Brown and Ricky Seals-Jones could also see increased snaps as long as Njoku is unable to go.

Harris caught his lone target for four yards in Monday's 23-3 win over the Jets in Week 2.

EDGE Analysis

Harris was the primary fill-in for playing time after David Njoku left the game with a possible concussion. After playing just 13 snaps (18 percent) in Week 1, Harris was on the field for 54 plays (78 percent) against the Jets. He had the lowest target-per-snap count of the nine players targeted in the win.

Harris practiced fully Thursday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harris' full participation Thursday means he's likely clear of the shoulder injury that bugged him earlier in the week. The 28-year-old practiced in an unknown capacity Tuesday as well. It remains unclear how or when Harris sustained the shoulder issue, but it seemingly wasn't very serious.

Harris (shoulder) was spotted at Tuesday's practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear to what capacity Harris is practicing Tuesday, but his participation in any fashion is a good sign for his Week 2 availability. The Browns don't play until Monday night, so the 28-year-old will have an extra day to get in more practice and recover from this shoulder issue.

Harris failed to haul in his only target in Sunday's loss to the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

The second string tight end didn't get a ton of action Sunday, logging 13 offensive snaps and 14 special teams snaps in the contest. He also drew two offensive holding penalties on offense, which could lead to a drop in game action in the coming weeks.

Harris (concussion) suited up for Saturday's preseason action against the Colts but was unable to haul in either of his two targets.

EDGE Analysis

Harris had been nursing a concussion for much of the month, but was able to return for and start Saturday's game. His return is a welcomed one considering the tight end behind him -- Seth DeValve (concussion) -- and the tight end in front of him -- David Njoku (knee) -- both failed to suit up in the game. Expect Harris to receive more action for the team's third preseason game, if both aforementioned tight ends continue to be sidelined.

Harris returned to practice Saturday after sitting out due to a concussion, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

During the Browns' final practice of July, Harris took his time getting to his feet and hasn't practiced in the interim. The nature of the injury wasn't known until his return, but the concussion protocol does allow players to take part in portions of practice before passing the final test with an independent neurologist. Harris has a week to regain his health before the Browns' next preseason game Aug. 17 at Indianapolis, so there's a decent chance he'll be available.

Harris did not practice Thursday due to an undisclosed injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harris was slow to get up after a play during Wednesday's practice. It's unclear whether the Browns are just being cautious with the tight end or the injury is at least somewhat serious, but Harris should be considered day-to-day for now.
