Free agent RB Jamie Harper has been arrested in Franklin, Tenn. for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend.
Waived by the Titans in early May, Harper made his only visit of free agency to New England in late May. This obviously isn't going to help his market. Going on 24, Harper has averaged a putrid 2.1 yards on 36 career carries. Wed, Jul 31, 2013 03:11:00 PM

Free agent RB Jamie Harper worked out for the Patriots and Giants this week.

Harper was recently cut by the Titans. The Pats don't need any more backs, but the Giants' depth chart is wide open behind David Wilson and Andre Brown.

Titans waived RB Jamie Harper.

A 2011 fourth-round pick, Harper ends his Titans career with just 36 carries for 74 yards (2.06 YPC) and four touchdowns. Occasionally bandied about as a short-yardage threat to Chris Johnson, Harper was made redundant by the signing of Shonn Greene. A 5-foot-11, 233-pound load of a runner, Harper is still only 23, but is limited athletically and runs like a scatback, avoiding contact. Signed cheaply through 2014, someone might give him a shot on waivers.

Titans declared RB Jamie Harper, MLB Colin McCarthy, CB Ryan Mouton, OT Byron Stingily, WR Lavelle Hawkins, DT DaJohn Harris, and QB Rusty Smith inactive for Week 13 versus the Texans.

Harper has an ankle injury, so Chris Johnson will carry a full load as usual. McCarthy is out with a concussion. Hawkins sits with an ankle issue of his own, while Damian Williams (hamstring) is active.

Titans declared RB Jamie Harper, WR Lavelle Hawkins, S Al Afalava, QB Rusty Smith, DT DaJohn Harris, OT Byron Stingily, and LB Xavier Adibi inactive for Week 12 at Jacksonville.

Harper went down with an ankle injury before the Titans Week 11 bye. Chris Johnson could see goal-line carries Sunday with Harper out of the lineup. Darius Reynaud and newly promoted Darren Evans will be the backups.

Titans RB Jamie Harper (ankle) is considered questionable for Week 12.

Harper, the Titans' goal-line back, wasn't able to practice on Thursday even though the Titans are coming out of a bye. He has three touchdowns on his 13 carries this season.
Thu, Nov 22, 2012 10:34:00 AM

Jamie Harper rushed seven times for eight yards with two touchdowns in the Titans' Week 7 win over the Bills.

The 233-pound Harper turned into the clear short-yardage back after Chris Johnson got stuffed on a goal-line chance in the first quarter. He executed with ease on his two goal-line changes, both coming from one yard out. Harper now has three touchdowns in his last two games, but has no value outside of touchdown vulturing.

Head coach Mike Munchak says RB Jamie Harper could see more short-yardage and goal-line work after he scored a one-yard touchdown on Thursday night.

Harper saw just two carries last night, but he capitalized on the goal-line score after Chris Johnson couldn't punch it in. With Javon Ringer (knee) out, Harper is the clear back-up to CJ?K. It was the Titans' first rushing touchdown of the season.
Fri, Oct 12, 2012 03:05:00 PM

Jamie Harper rushed for a one-yard touchdown on two carries in Week 6 against the Steelers.

Harper saw very limited action with Chris Johnson running surprisingly well, but he did steal a goal-line carry and score after Johnson failed to punch it in on the first attempt. Javon Ringer (knee) is going to miss over a month of action, so Harper will be the primary backup during that time frame.
Fri, Oct 12, 2012 01:03:00 AM

Titans RB Jamie Harper could see time at fullback.

Starter Collin Mooney is dealing with a minor knee injury. A full-on position switch shouldn't be in store for Harper, but it's proof that he's firmly behind Javon Ringer on the depth chart, with Darius Reynaud gaining ground.
Sat, Aug 18, 2012 05:35:00 PM

Titans rookie RB Jamie Harper rushed four times for 19 yards and caught a four-yard pass in the team's Week 17 win over Houston.

After a big preseason, Harper finished his first NFL regular season with just 44 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries, playing third fiddle behind Chris Johnson and Javon Ringer until Ringer's late-season injury. Harper has an intriguing skill set for a future third-down back because he pass blocks well and can catch. We don't see him as a great long-term prospect, however. Harper should return as the team's No. 3 back in 2012.
Sun, Jan 1, 2012 07:05:00 PM

Jamie Harper rushed four times for six yards with a touchdown in the Titans' Week 16 win over the Jaguars.

Despite some early-week rhetoric that Harper would see a big boost in reps this week, it didn't happen. Chris Johnson's ankle was fine and the rookie was a strict backup. He did get the call as the power back from one yard out and converted for his first career touchdown.
Sat, Dec 24, 2011 06:28:00 PM

Rookie Jamie Harper will be Chris Johnson's lone backup in Sunday's game against the Colts.

Even though Javon Ringer (hand) is out, the Titans aren't adding a running back to the active roster. Harper, a one-cut power runner, is capable of playing on some third downs and filling a change-of-pace role. Still, we wouldn't expect more than a handful of touches in Indy this week.
Thu, Dec 15, 2011 10:47:00 AM

Titans rookie Jamie Harper received just three carries for 10 yards and caught a 21-yard pass in Week 1 against the Jaguars.

It may be worth noting that Harper replaced Chris Johnson for a series deep inside the red zone during the second half. Otherwise, Harper was not a rushing factor, which should have been expected. He's the Titans' third-string back and will resume that role once Javon Ringer gets back from his hip and back woes.
Sun, Sep 11, 2011 04:39:00 PM

Rookie RB Jamie Harper shined in Tennessee's preseason game against the Rams on Saturday, carrying the ball 11 times for 83 yards and a touchdown.

Starting for an injured Javon Ringer and absent Chris Johnson, Harper added one catch for 24 yards. His biggest run of the night came with five minutes remaining in the second quarter, when Harper reeled off a 46-yard gain. Although Harper is still unlikely to unseat Ringer as CJ2K's primary backup, he's making a case to be Tennessee's Week 1 third-down back.
