Report: Najee Harris Avoids Significant Abdominal Injury

Najee Harris did not suffer a significant abdominal injury on Monday against the Colts, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Harris was ruled out quickly after suffering the injury and heading into the locker room. However, it appears that a significant long-term injury was avoided with the injury. Rapoport did not give anything definitive in regard to Harris’ status for Pittsburgh’s Sunday matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. Still, his status it at least up in the air.

“His status this week is up in the air, and he’ll be reevaluated as the practice week goes on,” Rapoport wrote.

On Tuesday, Mike Tomlin said that the update on Harris was minimal. His practice participation will continue to be their guide to see if he could potentially return against the Falcons. Tomlin did say he could be inclusive earlier in the week to try and allow players to get more tread before Sunday’s matchup. It is possible that Harris could fall under that category.
