In speaking with reporters on Friday, Najee said he spent the holiday at his head coach’s home.

“I actually went to Mike T’s house,” Harris said. “It was different, not spending time with my family, but they FaceTimed me. It was good to be in a new city on the holidays and spend time with my team and the coach and talk about stuff other than football. It was a good bonding experience.”
