Patriots Promote WR Chris Harper Again

New, comments

With the injuries at WR, the Patriots need someone who has been with the team all year.

Not many players get second chances, but Chris Harper will.

Yesterday it was announced that Leonard Hankerson would be released. The vacant has been filled by Chris Haprer, who has been with the team all season on the 53 and the practice squad. Harper is probably best known for the muffed punt that led to Denver erasing a 14 point deficit and winning in OT. With Danny Amendola and Brandon LaFell's status up in the air, the Patriots need someone with better knowledge of the play book than Hankerson. If Amendola is unable to go, Harper likely replaces him in the slot while Keshawn Marain handles punt return duties. The inactives will be announced at 11:30 am Sunday.
