Question 2: Can Damien Harris stay healthy in first season with Buffalo Bills?

The Buffalo Bills would add two running backs during free agency with the first being Damien Harris. He began his career with the New England Patriots and showed at times to be an effective, downhill running back that can pick up those tough yards in short-yardage situations.

Harris' best season would be in 2021 when he would have 202 rushing attempts, 929 rushing yards, and 15 rushing touchdowns. It is clear the talent is there and he should have a role in this offense complementing James Cook out of the backfield.

The question for Damien Harris this season, and what has been a question for most of his career, is if he can stay healthy. That 2021 season would be the only year that Harris was able to play more than 12 regular season games. As a rookie, he would appear in only two games, then in 2020 he would play in 10 games and this past season would be available for only 11.

If he Damien Harris is able to stay healthy, he should be able to finish with close to double digit rushing touchdowns in a prolific offense like the Buffalo Bills
