As for Harris, his NFL debut could be just one short week away if he makes an appearance in next week’s Hall of Fame Game against the Dallas Cowboys. Over the course of his time at Alabama, Harris had two 1,000 yard rushing seasons and rushed for 46 touchdowns.
Harris has made news recently for wearing the yellow/green wristband that signifies that the player is currently unvaccinated for COVID-19, but as of yesterday, Harris was no longer sporting the band.
