Patriots running backs coach Ivan Fears said he feels confident running back Damien Harris will "step up to the plate" after his late-game fumble against the Dolphins. "We have not had a problem with him," Fears said.
There were stories Monday the Patriots were going limit Harris' workload as a result of his fumble. With Sony Michel now in LA, next up is rookie Stevenson, but Stevenson fumbled in the game as well and lost playing time, and the Patriots aren't loaded with safer options. So this is at least a good sign the team will continue to trust Harris. Harris now comes with some risk in Week 2 until we see his workload.
