Jeff Duncan adds that Saints LB Kwon Alexander has tested positive and will be placed on the COVID-19 list. 

Harris is serving a three-game suspension. He was sentenced to one year of supervised probation after pleading not guilty to driving under the influence during a July traffic incident in Baltimore. Harris is under probation until Nov. 8, 2022.


Alexander, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2015. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,758,320 contract before agreeing to a four-year contract worth $54 million with the 49ers in 2019. 

He was traded to the Saints midseason in 2020 for LB Kiko Alonso and a conditional fifth-round pick. He tore his Achilles late in the season and was released back in March. 

Alexander returned to the Saints in August on a one-year contract worth up to $3 million.

In 2021, Kwon Alexander has appeared in 10 games for the Saints and recorded 39 tackles, three sacks, an interception and two pass deflections.

Harris, 23, wound up going undrafted out of Assumption last year. He later signed a three-year, $1.755 million contract with the Saints and managed to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason.

In 2021, Harris has appeared in 11 games and caught 31 passes for 523 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 32 yards on four carries. He also has 591 kick return yards and 191 punt return yards.
