Harris enters his third year hoping to keep his role as the Cowboys third receiver. He's got no shot at displacing Dez Bryant or Terrance Williams, but the departure of Miles Austin means Harris should have more targets than he's used to seeing in the last two seasons. Harris doesn't stand out particularly in any facet, but the coaches like his composure, maturity and experience within the system.

2013 Game Summaries

Week 1 - In addition to his return duties, Harris saw limited action on offense as the fourth receiver. He was used in the short passing game to take advantage of his after-the-catch abilities. Harris’ highlight play came on a play-action rollout by Tony Romo in the red zone. Harris came wide open and nearly broke a sideline tackle that would have likely resulted in a touchdown.

Week 2 - Harris was minimally involved in the offense against Kansas City. He made a nice adjustment with Romo scrambling outside the pocket coming back to the ball for a reception. Later in the game, Harris had a false start penalty putting the offense in a long-yardage situation.

Week 3 - On his regular return duties, Harris fumbled on the opening punt return. Fortunately, the Rams did not convert the mistake into points. On offense, Harris converted his lone target into a touchdown. With tight coverage, Romo and Harris were able to connect down the seam for a score early in the fourth quarter, cementing the victory.

Week 4 - It was an up-and-down game for Harris, who saw additional playing time on offense with Miles Austin out of the lineup. He dropped a third down target on the opening drive of the game, contributing to Dallas’ early-game struggles on offense. On his lone reception, Harris made a nice catch extending away from his body on a comeback route. On special teams, Harris added a 48-yard punt return, setting up the offense in San Diego territory.

Week 5 - Harris was able to turn a quick out route into a conversion of second-and-long, eluding the first defender and accelerating down the sidelines. Later in the game, Harris bobbled a low pass on a crossing route, unable to control it before hitting the ground. Even with Miles Austin out with an injury, Harris did not see a significant increase in playing time against Denver. Instead it was Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley with more action on offense. Harris remains a role player on offense in addition to his work on special teams.

Week 6 - With a healthy Miles Austin and Cole Beasley productive as the fourth receiver on offense, Harris was relegated to his special teams duties. Harris was a difference-maker against Washington with a punt return for a touchdown, giving Dallas a 14-3 lead in the second quarter. Also, Harris broke free for a long kickoff return in the second half. He became just the third player in history to have kickoff and punt returns of 85 or more yards in the same game.

Week 9 - In addition to his return duties, Harris was on the field in situational four-receiver sets against Minnesota. Harris was on the field quite a bit on the final drive of the game, including his game-winning touchdown. In the red zone, Harris came open on a slant route where Romo hit him in stride at the goal line. Harris’ role has been consistent from week-to-week and this difference-making play is unlikely to lead to an increase in offensive snaps outside of an injury ahead of him on the depth chart.
