Saints wide receiver and kick returner Deonte Harris has a neck injury and is questionable to return, per NFL Network’s Jane Slater. Harris got the Saints off to a great start with a 54-yard kick return, but they ended up settling for a field goal.

Harris has dealt with a neck injury in the past, so this could be an aggravation of that injury. If he can’t return, it would be a blow to the Saints special teams as they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a chance to play in the NFC Championship game.
