Harris Struggling to Shake Injury Bug

The setback is particularly notable because Harris missed games last season while dealing with a lingering injury to the big toe on his left foot. He underwent surgery to rectify the issue along with a procedure on his thumb in May.

"It's more precautionary than anything else, but the surgeries went well. I'm rehabbing, walking regular and just waiting to get cleared to start running and doing other stuff," Harris told Sneed in June.

Harris has dealt with foot problems throughout his career and previously had surgery after suffering a dislocated toe in 2013. His explanation to Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News about that procedure could shed light on why he's been unable to avoid further issues.

"They told me the surgery would change the makeup of how I run," Harris said. "Just learning and kind of retraining my foot to run and distribute weight evenly has probably been the biggest adjustment."
