Charles Harris returned home to Kansas City this weekend and all the while the Miami Dolphins rookie defensive end will keep trying to stave off frustration. It’s not all that impressive when a high-profile first-round pick, the heir apparent to a passing-rushing throne that’s belonged to players such as Hall of Famer Jason Taylor and five-time Pro Bowl selection Cameron Wake, has just one sack through 14 games. Harris is sick of hearing about his statistics. “It’s irritating, but it is what it is,” said Harris, who has 17 tackles, two passes defended and a fumble recovery this season. “I know in due time it’s all going to come back around to fruition. “I ain’t worried.” And he’s sick of hearing Taylor and Wake both struggled to get sacks as rookies. “Both are irritating,” he said. “People saying, ‘It’s coming, it’s coming,’ and people saying, ‘You ain’t supposed to have it right now.’ It’s like, ‘Yes, you are.’ ” Harris just wants to put on a good show Sunday in his hometown. He estimates he might have 20 or 25 family and friends in attendance.
