Rookie RT Harris braces for elite 49ers defense

METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Saints rookie right tackle Bryce Harris is so grateful to have a chance to play in the NFL he isn't about to complain about the timing of his first career start, which is likely to come this Sunday against a San Francisco defense featuring some of the best pass-rushers in the NFL.

Harris says he's "just glad to have the opportunity" after entering the NFL as an undrafted rookie out of Fresno State.

Harris made his NFL debut during the Saints' 38-17 victory at Oakland last weekend. Harris was pressed into service because of a right knee injury to Charles Brown. Brown had been filling in for starter Zach Strief, who may not be ready to return from a left groin injury.

Strief says the Saints have faith in Harris.
