Three days ago, Temple coach Steve Addazio said he thought Montel Harris would be able to play Saturday against Maryland.

This afternoon, Addazio changed the running back’s status to day-to-day.

Harris sat out the second half of Friday’s 41-10 victory over Villanova with a sore hamstring.  Addazio said the Boston College transfer, who had five carries for 12 yards, rested in order to avoid further injury.

He strained the hamstring during training camp.

“It’s probably too early to say, right now,” Addazio said of Harris’ status during the Big East coaches teleconference. “Obviously, we are going to really make sure that he feels great. This is not a serious thing right now or anything. But you know what happens is these things are nagging when you are a running back or a skill player.

“The most important thing is try to do the best you can to try to get that thing put away and not let it linger. So we have to wait and see kind of day-by-day.
