Harrison suffered a torn quad muscle in his left leg during the Patriots' win over the Broncos Monday, the Boston Globe reports. The injury will end his season and quite possibly his career.

A tough break for the hard-hitting safety, whose slam-anything-that-moves mentality made it almost inevitable that his career would end with an injury. The two-time Super Bowl champ seemed to know he was done when he was carted off Monday, waving to the crowd as the fans at Gillette Stadium gave him a warm ovation. In his absence, look for Brandon Meriweather to see an expanded role.
Coach Bill Belichick did not sound optimistic about Harrison's knee injury after Monday's win over the Broncos, the Boston Globe reports."We have to see how it is," said Belichick. "It doesn't look too good."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

There was no outlook written for Rodney Harrison.

2008

Harrison hasn't played a full season since 2004, but continues to prove he could be a decent IDP option when healthy. He's another year older, so the roll of the dice keeps on getting riskier. If healthy, Harrison could give unexpected value. He finished the 2007 campaign (which started with him suspended) with 68 tackles, two sacks and a pick in 12 games.

2007

Harrison missed 24 of a possible 37 games over the last two seasons, including the playoffs. He's healthy for now and though age and injuries may have robbed him of a step, he can still rack up tackles (and the occasional pick) for IDP owners with his hard-hitting ways.

2006

ACL, MCL and PCL are bad letters to see next to your name. Harrison tore all three in Week 3 last year. There was some talk of the 11-year veteran having to call it a career, but Harrison spent the offseason in Foxboro rehabbing and shows every indication that heís motivated to pick up where he left off. Still, while he should he be back, itís unclear if it will be by Week 1. What we do know is he plays with an unrivaled mean streak. Heís generated contact like no one else in the defensive backfield; covered, rushed, made open field stops, you name it. The question is whether he still can. On the pro side of the argument, his game was never based on speed, but smarts, instincts and aggression. We noted it in last seasonís preview as well: excluding last year, heís averaged 91.6 solo tackles, 3.3 sacks, 3.8 picks and 7.9 passes defended in nine years as a starter dating back to 1996. Most linebackers canít say that. Harrison is a special talent worth watching as training camp and fantasy drafts approach.

2005

Put on a jersey and Rodney Harrison will hit you. Since he became a starter in 1996, Harrison has averaged 91.6 solo tackles, 3.3 sacks, 3.8 interceptions and 7.9 passes defended, which are just insane numbers even for a linebacker. At safety, theyíre Hall of Fame quality. He hasnít finished any year as the No. 1 defensive back in some time. That honor typically goes to whoever snagged nine interceptions that year (and who usually isnít even in the top 20 the following year). Consistency is Harrisonís game. He has been the No. 4 guy the past two years, has more fantasy points than any other defensive back over that span and fills in every week with high tackle numbers. Since he doesnít rely on interceptions for a high percentage of his points, Harrison is reliable, and features a skill set thatís sustainable with age. Ed Reed may have a touch more upside, but Harrison wonít fail you, week after week and year after year.

2004

Used to be there was death, taxes, Derrick Brooks at linebacker and Harrison at defensive back. We've said goodbye to the golden days of Mr. Brooks, and it seemed that way for Harrison after his solo tackles dipped to 71 in 2002. It's uncanny what 16 games under Bill Belichick do for you: 94 solo tackles, three interceptions, three sacks and 11 passes defended. That's pretty much an average year for a healthy Harrison. He's one of the few safeties who's delivered linebacker numbers throughout his career. That he scores with tackles and not interceptions makes his production all the more stable.

2003

An injured groin and a one-game suspension for a helmet-to-helmet hit cost Harrison three games last year and resulted in a sub-par season for the Pro Bowl strong safety. After the Chargers released him over the winter, Harrison signed with Bill Belichick's Patriots and will play alongside fellow tackling machine Lawyer Milloy, who had an off season last year.
