Temple coach Steve Addazio said tailback Montel Harris is “doing well” after injuring his left knee against Cincinnati this past Saturday.

The fifth-year senior was hit on his left knee on what the official scorer called a lateral with 12 minutes, 38 seconds before intermission. The Boston College transfer, who had eight carries for 19 yards, didn’t return.

“We just got to give him a little rest and see how that goes,” Addazio said of Harris’ status for Saturday's game at Army. “But I feel good about Montel.”
