Shortly after Harris left for Erie County Medical Center, a Level 1 Trauma Center, it was announced on the Sunday Night Football broadcast that it's believed Harris suffered a neck injury. On the positive side, the Bills organization is reporting that there were signs of movement in his arms and legs.

The injury was sustained from contact during a third-and-1 play from Buffalo's own 34-yard-line. More information on the injury and Harris' status will be shared as it's made available.

Harris, 26, was drafted by the New England Patriots in the third round of the 2019 NFL draft out of Alabama. He signed with Buffalo in March of 2023.
