N'Keal Harry finally saw action Sunday, playing 32 snaps in his NFL debut for the New England Patriots against the Philadelphia Eagles.
And by his account, things went pretty well.
Here's what the rookie wide receiver posted on Twitter and Instagram after catching three passes for 18 yards in the Patriots' 17-10 win over the Eagles:
Glory be to God🙏🏾💙 https://t.co/0ZC1Lt6f9N— Keal (@NkealHarry15) November 18, 2019
Harry's Instagram post earned plenty of love from his Patriots teammates in the comment section. A small sampling:
Defensive end Deatrich Wise Jr.: "Happy for you bro. Continue to work and improve your skills"
Defensive backs Devin and Jason McCourty: "Only up from here bro ✊🏿✊🏿✊🏿"
Wide receiver Phillip Dorsett: "Only the beginning 🙌🏾"
Harry saw an increase in snaps after Dorsett left the game with a concussion in the third quarter. So, how did his quarterback think he played?
Tom Brady was a bit less effusive when asked about Harry on Monday morning.
“N’Keal has worked hard,” Brady told WEEI's "The Greg Hill Show" in a radio interview. "He got some opportunities, and we’ve got to just keep getting him up to speed. He missed a lot of football, so we’re going to try to incorporate him the best way we can and use his skills to see if he can be a productive player for us in the second half of the year."
Brady has been hesitant to pump Harry's tires this season as the Patriots' No. 32 overall pick works back from an injury that sidelined him for the first nine games. After New England's poor offensive showing in Philly, Brady sang the same tune.
“I don’t want to make a bunch of predictions and (say) 'We’ll do this' or ‘We’ll do that,' " Brady said. "It comes down to all of us doing it — not speaking about it, but actually going out and doing it."
