FOXBOROUGH -- Due to unfair expectations or not, the start of N'Keal Harry's NFL career hasn't gone as planned.
After spending the first half of the season on injured reserve, Harry has played in the last three games and recorded just four catches on nine targets for 28 yards and a touchdown. Against Houston, Tom Brady threw an interception on a first quarter pass thrown his way and then he barely saw the field afterwards.
Speaking Friday, Harry acknowledged he can handle what the team is throwing at him, and it's about getting results.
“Everything they ask me to do is reasonable,” Harry said. “Everything they ask me to do is something I can do and something I’m capable of doing. So, it’s just putting in the work and getting it done. No excuses.”
NBC cameras caught Brady on the sidelines urging the wide receivers to play quicker and faster. So, how can Harry do that?
“Really just running routes how I block,” Harry said. “That’s how I think of it. That’s something that I’ve been working to improve on.”
In order for the Patriots' passing game to pick it up, it feels like Harry is one of the players that needs to pick it up the most.
