This week the Lions will face off against the Bears, who decided to give up on him and release him. Harris is doing his best this week to help the Lions quarterbacks by sitting in on their film study to break down the Bears defense.
“Any questions they have or ask — ‘What is this? What is that?’ — I guess I can give them further detail,” Harris said. “Not that they don’t already know. They are very familiar with this team, playing them twice a year and being in the same division.”
Lions head coach Jim Schwartz did his best to down play Harris helping out his offense.
“Obviously, these are two teams that know each other very well,” Schwartz said. “Neither team really tries to trick the other one. I think that there’s not a whole lot that’s going to be gleaned from Chris, or if they grabbed one of our players.”
Harris is obviously looking forward to facing his old team this Sunday.
“It’s going to be fun,” said Harris, who won’t be starting. “It’s going to be weird, but it’s going to be fun at the same time, being friends with pretty much all those guys on that squad. To be on the opposite side, trying to knock them out, it’ll be fun.”
