The New England Patriots' injury report listed running back Damien Harris as a limited participant in the week of preparation for Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills.
But the former Alabama standout didn’t appear limited by his ankle ailment on a 22-yard touchdown run on Sunday.
Harris broke up the middle and past the secondary for the first touchdown of his NFL career with 3:03 left in the third quarter.
A third-round draft choice in 2019, Harris played only five offensive snaps as a rookie. He missed the first three games of this season because of a hand injury that required surgery in September. Harris was playing in his sixth NFL game on Sunday.
Harris already has had a 100-yard game, rushing for 100 yards on 17 carries in a 26-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Oct. 5.
With the Patriots on a three-game losing streak, Harris' touchdown allowed New England to tie the score at 14-14 when former Auburn standout Cam Newton completed a 2-point conversion pass after the score.
