The Patriots offense has a pair of players currently working their way back to the fold in N’Keal Harry and Isaiah Wynn. Both are back on the practice field after spending several weeks on injured reserve.
Harry is eligible to be activated for Sunday’s game in Baltimore, and he would add a big body to the receiving corps if that’s the case.
The Boston Globe says Harry is revved up to play in his first NFL regular season game. The Providence Journal writes that Mohamed Sanu is trying to help the rookie any way he can. NBC Sports Boston believes the geometry of the Patriots offense changes with Harry. The Boston Sports Journal tries to answer some questions related to the Patriots offense as well.
