Jacob Harris suffers offseason setback, out 2-3 weeks

The Rams won’t have the rookie tight end right away

NFL: Los Angeles Rams Minicamp Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

No time off is “good time off” for an NFL rookie and Jacob Harris has had a little time off recently. It is expected to continue for a few more weeks.

The Athletic’s Jourdan Rodrigue reported Wednesday that Harris, a fourth round tight end/wide receiver out of UCF, will be out at least a couple of weeks as he recovers from a core injury that he suffered recently and had surgery on.

Rodrigue says that for now, the Rams are just being “cautious” with the rookie and at the moment there is nobody on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

There is a lot of optimism surrounding the athletic tight end, thanks not only to his unique physical traits but thanks to some nifty plays he made in OTAs this summer. Los Angeles likely isn’t going to count on much from Harris this season anyway as he is working to become a tight end for the first time in his football career.

This could allow more time to study the playbook.
