The New England Patriots strengthened their receiving corps on Saturday by reportedly activating wide receiver N’Keal Harry off injured reserve.

Harry, the No. 32 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, missed the first half of the season after suffering an ankle injury in his first preseason game.

The 6-foot-4 receiver returned to the practice field on Oct. 15 and quickly showed the explosiveness and ability to get open that made him New England’s first-round selection.

Harry hauled in 73 receptions for 1,088 receiving yards and nine touchdowns in his junior season at Arizona State and posted consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. He should quickly contribute to a receiving corps that just welcomed Mohamed Sanu recently.
