Deonte Harris, WR (NO)

Loses appeal, faces three-game ban

The NFL announced that Harris' three-game suspension was upheld following his appeal and will go into effect beginning with the Saints' Week 14 game Sunday against the Jets, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

Harris was handed the suspension in late November following his July arrest on a DWI charge, but he was able to play in the Saints' past two games while waiting for his appeal to be heard. An already shallow New Orleans pass-catching group will now become even weaker with the loss of Harris, who leads the team with 523 receiving yards and ranks second with 31 receptions through his 11 appearances. He'll be eligible to rejoin the lineup for the Saints' Week 17 game against the Dolphins on Jan. 2. While Harris is out, the Saints likely will turn to a combination of Ty Montgomery, Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Kenny Stills to serve as their No. 3 wideout alongside starters Tre'Quan Smith and Marquez Callaway.
