Harris was a full participant at Monday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Harris played 11 snaps in the Chiefs' final preseason game last week, but it's more unclear how much he and fellow backup James O'Shaughnessy will be utilized behind Travis Kelce. The Chiefs often employed two and sometimes three tight end sets last season, so it's possible both will receive work unless one can clearly separate himself.

Harris returned to game action Thursday for the first time since he suffered a fractured foot last season.

EDGE Analysis

In his return, Harris went without a reception or even a target, but he wasn't listed among the players who were sitting out. He seems the likely candidate to take the third tight end spot, but supposedly remains behind Richard Gordon on the depth chart. With roster cuts around the corner, tight end could be an interesting position to watch behind Travis Kelce and James O'Shaughnessy.

Harris (foot) is expected to see some snaps in Thursday's preseason finale against the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Harris returned to practice Sunday, but appears set to be thrown into the fire. He's been a member of the team long enough to know the playbook, so now it's more just a matter of getting his legs back under him. While he was out, the Chiefs drafted James O'Shaughnessy to compete for the backup role, and Harris will likely need to show something to hold onto it. However, he was an effective member as the third tight end last year prior to the injury, seeing the field on some three tight end sets.

EDGE Analysis

Harris will likely ease back into action with the Chiefs, but he's expected to see some game action in the Chiefs' final preseason game Thursday against the Rams. He's regarded as the third-string tight end behind Travis Kelce and James O'Shaughnessy, but he could take the second spot depending on how he plays in his return.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is optimistic Harris (foot) will be ready for training camp, ESPN.com's Adam Teicher reports.

Harris underwent surgery in November to repair a fractured right foot, and then had a follow-up procedure in early May to insert another screw. A 2013 UDFA, the 6-7 Harris played basketball in college, and he's officially listed at only 230 pounds. If healthy, he could lock down the No. 2 tight end spot behind Travis Kelce, who figures to be a crucial part of the Kansas City offense.

Harris suffered a fracture in his right foot in pregame warmups Sunday, the Kansas City Star reports.

Harris only had three receptions for 20 yards on the season, but provided the Chiefs with an athletic tight end that added depth at the tight end position. The Chiefs will likely add a tight end to the roster either from the practice squad (Brandon Barden) or from free agency.
