It's hard to imagine that Rodney Harrison will no longer be in the defensive backfield for the Patriots, but it appears that it's becoming a bigger reality.


When Harrison went down with a quad injury during last season, most of us believed it may have been his final time leaving the field as a player for the Patriots.  According to ProFootball Weekly Harrison's return is becoming less of a possibility with each passing week.


What could be a possibility is Harrison coming back just as Junior Seau and Roosevelt Colvin did late last season after the Patriots suffered several injuries at the linebacker position.  While published reports had Harrison possibly playing in Atlanta this season, according to the website the veteran safety said that if he does return, it would likely only be with New England.
