While rookie wide receiver N'Keal Harry has yet to play in a NFL game, he has been on the practice field the last several weeks and according to Devin McCourty, he's been able to upset the Patriots defense.

“I think he continues to get better," McCourty said Thursday on Dale & Keefe. "One of the things he does a really good job of is playing hard in practice. He at times, he pisses off the DBs because he works his butt off — out there blocking, out there getting open. I think that is the good thing about seeing him out there running around.

"It’s hard. When you’re a young guy and you’re a rookie and you miss that much time, you come out there and it’s everything in your game you have to work on. I think as an older guy, that has been exciting to see him there every day after practice just getting work in. He’s doing his best to try and get back out there.”

Harry was activated to the 53-man roster last Saturday, but was not active for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

The first-round pick was placed on injured reserve before the start of the season after playing in only one preseason game due to a hamstring injury.
