Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dwayne Harris stepped up against the Rams on Saturday with Dez Bryant and Miles Austin both sidelined by injuries. Harris caught three balls for 118 yards and two touchdowns. Tony Romo connected with Harris on a beautiful deep ball for the first touchdown, and Harris took advantage of some sloppy tackling on the second score. Harris also performed well last preseason and should be on the Cowboys' final 2012 roster. He figures to compete for time at the slot receiver position.
Analysis: Dwayne Harris will be stuck in the shadows of Dez Bryant, Miles Austin and Jason Witten in the Cowboys' passing game once those three are healthy, but he flashed a skill set that should earn him some playing time this season. Romo could use a weapon like Harris out of the slot, and if he continues to play like he has, Harris could be that guy.
