Damien Harris questionable to return with chest injury

Patriots

Depth at running back continues to be tested for the New England Patriots.

The team's No. 1 back, Damien Harris, exited Sunday's game against the Houston Texans in the third quarter with a chest injury and is questionable to return, per the team. 

Harris had a 1-yard rushing touchdown for the Patriots on the first play of the second quarter, helping tie the game at 6-6, but lost a fumble on his way into the end zone for a score which would have made it all square at 12-12.

With Harris's status uncertain, New England has only Rhamondre Stevenson and Brandon Bolden available at running back.

UPDATE 3:26 p.m.: Harris has returned to the game for the Patriots.

UPDATE 3:41 p.m.: Harris again left the game, this time with a rib injury, and is again questionable to return.

J.J. Taylor is inactive after losing a fumble last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers; Stevenson, meanwhile, is active for the first time since losing a fumble in the Patriots' season opener against the Miami Dolphins.
