Lions released G/C Leroy Harris.
Harris was owed a $1.85 million base salary in addition to an offseason roster bonus of $100,000. He only played on special teams in 2013 with Detroit, as the Lions' starting offensive line stayed healthy. Harris is only 30 years old and has versatility, so he should draw some interest as an interior reserve elsewhere. Mon, Mar 3, 2014 02:24:00 PM

Lions agreed to terms with OG Leroy Harris, formerly of the Titans.

Coming off a sub-par season that was cut short by a partially torn right ACL, Harris will compete with third-rounder Larry Warford at right guard. Harris has 42 games of starting experience, but Warford will have the edge. Harris is likely just veteran depth for a team that previously had only journeyman Dylan Gandy and 2012 practice-squader Rodney Austin behind Warford. Harris is still recovering from his ACL injury.

Free agent G Leroy Harris worked out for the Lions Wednesday.

Despite starting 31 games over the last two seasons, the 28-year-old Harris is scurrying for a backup job. Rookie Larry Warford and Rob Sims are penciled in as the Lions' starting guards.

The Nashville Tennessean expects the Titans to approach free agent RG Leroy Harris about a one-year deal.

Harris made eight starts this past season before tearing his ACL. In the two previous years, Harris started 31-of-32 games at left guard. His work as a pass blocker has been spotty, and the Tennessean can't see Harris coming back as a starter as the team tries to renovate the interior of its offensive line.

Titans will place RG Leroy Harris (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Harris will undergo surgery to repair a partially torn ACL after getting a second opinion on Tuesday. A free agent in 2013, Harris has an uncertain future in Nashville. His pass-blocking left a lot to be desired in the first half of the season. Kevin Matthews is expected to take over as the starter.

Titans RG Leroy Harris revealed Monday that he has a partially torn ACL.

The Tennessee medical team is hoping Harris' ACL will heal with rest and rehab, and that he'll be able to return later in the season. If the healing doesn't go smoothly, he may require a knee reconstruction. Kevin Matthews got the right guard nod in Week 9 against the Bears and will continue to start.

Titans coach Mike Munchak believes RG Leroy Harris should be able to play at some point this season.

While the team initially feared the worst, the injury doesn't sound like it will be season ending. Kevin Matthews will get the start at RG for the Titans while Harris is sidelined.

After a Monday MRI, the Titans do not believe RG Leroy Harris' knee injury is season ending.

Coach Mike Munchak declined to provide a firm timeline. Harris "felt like his knee gave out" on the first-quarter injury against the Colts, and he did not return. OL coach Bruce Matthews' son, Kevin, will start in the interim.

Titans RG Leroy Harris was knocked out of Sunday's game versus the Colts in the first quarter with a knee injury.

"We don't know how Leroy's knee is," coach Mike Munchak said. "His leg got tangled up, I think. Hopefully, it's not bad." Harris will go for an MRI on Monday. Kevin Matthews replaced him for the final three and a half quarters.

Titans RG Leroy Harris (knee, shoulder surgeries) has been cleared for contact.

Harris re-joined teammates for Tuesday's practice. Expected to move from left to right guard this season, Harris should have a lock on the starting job after the Titans failed to bring in veteran competition. He remains a weakness in the running game.

The Titans plan to move Leroy Harris from left to right guard in 2012.

Newly acquired Steve Hutchinson will be the left guard, where he's played his entire career. Harris, 28 in June, is coming off knee and shoulder scopes, but should be 100 percent by training camp. Harris took a step forward last season, but struggled as a run blocker. He'll need to iron that out in order to be an effective right guard, where effective run blocking is required.

Titans LG Leroy Harris is recovering from knee and shoulder scopes.

According to coach Mike Munchak, Harris will be "fine." It's possible Harris won't be ready for OTAs, but he should be 100 percent before camp. After a disappointing 2010, Harris started all 16 games for the Titans last season. He graded out as the league's sixth-best guard in Pro Football Focus' rankings.

Titans re-signed LG Leroy Harris to a two-year contract.

Harris is a favorite of coach Mike Munchak, but he was a bust as the team's starting left guard last season. Munchak will continue to focus on coaching up a player he believes has potential, but clearly hasn't fulfilled it. If Munchak can get better play from Harris and C Eugene Amano, Chris Johnson's life would be much easier. The tackles are good to go, at least.

The Titans have reached out to free agent LG Leroy Harris in hopes of re-signing him.

"Other teams are in the mix as well," reports Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. The Titans like Harris' potential, but he was a problem -- not a solution -- in the team's run blocking woes last year. They just don't have a better alternative.
Tue, Jul 26, 2011 03:20:00 PM

According to ESPN's Paul Kuharsky, "all indications are" that the Titans will re-sign free agent LG Leroy Harris.

Harris was a huge disappointment in his first season as a starter, but the Titans remain high on his potential. Tennessee should still be careful to not overpay. Harris was a big part of the problem in the team's steep run-blocking decline, and that isn't a great sign considering it was his contract year.
