Dwayne Harris takes late hit
By Calvin Watkins
NEW ORLEANS -- While there was no penalty called, it seems the NFL most likely will take a look at the late shove administered by the Saints Kevin Reddick on the Cowboys Dwayne Harris during Sunday night's game.
As Harris was returning a first-quarter kickoff, Reddick gave Harris a shove after he reached the Saints sidelines. Harris' head crashed into the knee of Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan who was standing on the sidelines, not involved in the play.
Harris was down face first along the Saints sidelines as several of his teammates, Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, along with coach Jason Garrett watched the team trainers and doctors work on him. Harris was able to walk off the field under his own power and he did return after he recovered from some neck soreness.
"I knew I was going to comeback after the pain went away," Harris said.
"I really couldn’t see it but I heard a lot of people saying it was late," safety Danny McCray said. "I didn’t get a chance to see the replay because it was a little late."
Harris finished the game with five kick returns for 121 yards. He didn't field any punts.
