Rookie Dwayne Harris gave the Cowboys their longest kickoff return of the year last week, a 51-yarder against the Philadelphia Eagles. But he wasn’t impressed with it because it didn’t lead to a score.
“It was decent,” he said.
Harris got two games as the lead kickoff returner early in the year, averaged 24.7 yards on three returns and was sent to the practice squad for eight weeks. He was called up for the Giants game and finally got two chances in the Philadelphia game, averaging 42.5 yards.
“I’m definitely a better student of the game from the beginning of the year to now,” he said. “I’m reading locks a little better. I’m making it easier on myself.”
