Packers Place RB DuJuan Harris On Injured Reserve

The Green Bay Packers have placed running back DuJuan Harris on injured reserve possibly ending his 2013 season. Harris suffered a knee injury in the teams third preseason game, the same knee that kept him out of offseason workouts and the first two weeks of training camp. Head coach Mike McCarthy was asked if they would designate Harris for return later in the season, and he was unsure at the time. It’s unlikely the Packers will use their one allotted slot for a player to return on Harris so early in the season. Especially after they drafted two RBs early in April’s draft, Eddie Lacy and Jonathan Franklin. Lacy is now the guy and should move up boards accordingly, as he’ll have little competition for the starting gig. Franklin has been underwhelming thus far but should move up slightly. I’m a big fan of Franklin and if he can start to grasp the NFL game he could be a late season bloomer. James Starks and Alex Green are still in the mix for work but they are who we think they are. If anything, Harris’ injury probably saves one of them from being cut, meaning Starks or Green will make the final roster.
