Harris showered with support after fumble in Miami loss

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The choreographed movements of the handshake Mac Jones and Damien Harris share before every practice are fast and hard to decipher.

It begins with a quick grasp of hands and touch of the fingertips, followed by two palm slaps. Then comes a dancing shimmy and flex, ending with both men angling their arms downward in a sort of modified salute.

It’s a special greeting reserved just for the two of them — a small carryover of the bond that first began when they were college teammates at Alabama and revived when they were reunited in New England this summer after Jones was selected 15th overall by New England in April’s draft.
