Harris suffers hand injury, returns in second quarter


UPDATE: Harris returned to action in the second quarter after heading to the locker room

The Eagles opening defensive drive didn’t go very well against the Bucs.

Not only did they give up a touchdown, but they might also be without one of their key starters for the rest of the night. Against a Tom Brady offense, that’s a scary thought.

Starting safety Anthony Harris suffered a hand injury and is questionable to return. Harris ran into the locker room after the Eagles gave up a touchdown.

Without Harris, the Eagles will play Rodney McLeod and Marcus Epps. K’Von Wallace is still on IR with a separated shoulder.

The Eagles’ other backup defensive backs active tonight are Zech McPhearson, Josiah Scott and Andre Chachere.

Coming into this game, Harris was the only Eagles defensive player to play every defensive snap this season. Since his return from a knee injury, Rodney McLeod has been on a pitch count. That might need to be out the window tonight.

Meanwhile, the Bucs have also lost a defensive back. Richard Sherman is out with a hamstring injury.
