New England Patriots running back Damien Harris seemed to get injured on his final carry of the Week 2 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. After the rush, Harris stayed on the ground and was grasping at his knee. He was able to get up with assistance from teammates, and he limped off the field. This carry earned a first down which allowed the team to go into kneel downs and win the game.

Harris had 15 carries for 71 yards and a touchdown in the victory. He also caught both of his targets for 16 more yards. With the injury happening on the last play of the game before kneel downs, we don't know the severity of the injury or if he would have been able to continue playing. It will certainly be a situation to monitor for him as he gets into practices this week.

If Harris suffered any sort of injury and misses time, Rhamondre Stevenson would become the starting running back. He finished with nine carries for 47 yards and one reception for four more yards.
