Harris, Kampman injuries look bad

Although nothing will be certain until MRI results are in, injuries suffered by two of the Packers’ top defensive players today appear to be serious.

Both Packers cornerback Al Harris and linebacker Aaron Kampman suffered knee injuries during today’s win over the 49ers, and Packers coach Mike McCarthy sounded extremely concerned about both injuries.

“I won’t have more information until tomorrow, [but] both injuries did not look very good, there is some concern,” McCarthy said, per Greg A. Bedard of the Journal Sentinel.

Citing an unnamed league source, Brad Biggs of NFP reports that Harris has been lost for the season with a torn ACL. Considering that Harris’s agent, Jack Bechta, is one of the owners of NFP, it’s probably safe to say the source has good information.

The losses of Harris and Kampman would be very bad ones for a Packers team that improved to 6-4 and is well positioned in the NFC wild card race.

    They are not very good and will have problems going far with them anyway.

    Awwwwww
    Poor Little Packers

    Losing Kampman is tough, but at least Brad Jones has looked great in relief. We got a crazy man named Cyril Obiozor on our practice squad too. I think that guy can produce.
    Losing Harris could be a killer, though. We already lost our dime guy, Will Blackmon.
    Packers fans everywhere dread Jarrett Bush, who now moves up the depth chart to the nickel position. He’s looked ok under Capers. Maybe the new system will be more to his strengths.
    We also lost Pat Lee in training camp, so behind bush is Brandon Underwood an promising but raw rookie.

    That’s what they get for not running the clock otu in the 4th quarter!
    Mike McCarhty is so bitter and jealous of Favre. The Niners turned the ball over at their own 20, and instead of running the ball (which they had done well all day), McCarthy calls 3 passing plays in a row to try to pad Aaron’s stats and get him a TD, since Brett had 4 today.
    Awful play calling fueled by vanity and revenge.

    Great, now Ted Thompson fans will use this as an excuse when the Pack collapse again.
    I will give Harris being gone weakening the D a little bit. But Kampmon has been a non-factor this year since McCarthy has played him out of position. No impact there.

    This is rough. Jarrett Bush and rookie Brandon Underwood will get more playing time, and this may limit Charles Woodson. Brad Jones has played well for Kampman, it seems like that isn’t as big a deal, which is a surprise.

    There goes Mr. Rodgers neighborhood. Feel bad for Kampmann,but not that dirty POS Harris. You all know,the one that fuels AD’s Packers hate because he hit AD’s knee on purpose in 2007 when the Pack said they had a cash prize bounty on AD. You,know,the worm that AD trucked the next season? Bye, Bye Harris you shitbag

  8. mike says: Nov 22, 2009 6:28 PM

    Yeah both injuries didnt look good.

  9. Bech72 says: Nov 22, 2009 6:30 PM

    This is the NFL not college. It’s not very often that you see blow outs in this league, so the notion that the Bengals aren’t “for real” if they don’t win by a large margin is bullshit! A win is a win whether by 1 point or 50.

  10. R.Babe says: Nov 22, 2009 6:33 PM

    Figures. Somehow, I blame Mike McCarthy.

  11. GBPackers says: Nov 22, 2009 6:38 PM

    I would never wish injury on anyone, but Al is very over rated

  12. MasterShake says: Nov 22, 2009 6:44 PM

    Could things possibly get worse for Kampman? I hate to jinx the guy anymore but damn, he deserves better. He’s looking to get out of G.B. and with an injury, it can’t be benificial to him can it?
    Maybe he’ll be out the rest of the year and rehab so he can play for a contender next year even if it means his pay won’t be very high.

    “I will give Harris being gone weakening the D a little bit. But Kampmon has been a non-factor this year since McCarthy has played him out of position. No impact there.”
    You do know that he recorded a sack today, don’t you??
    “I would never wish injury on anyone, but Al is very over rated”
    I never really thought Al was overrated all that much but now I honestly think that he kind of is I mean, people are calling him one of the best in the league but he has gotten burned quite alot in the past couple of years.
    “That’s what they get for not running the clock otu in the 4th quarter!

    Dude, did you even watch the game?? b/c in the 4th quarter, McCarthy called more run plays then pass plays to run out the clock. The only major pass play called was on a 3rd down when the 49ers were only down by 6 and the reason why McCarthy called a pass play was to get a first down to prevent the 49ers from retaining the ball and the Rodgers did just that. It was all run plays from there on out.
    So next time, actually watch the game before posting a stupid theory you brainless buffoon.

    never like to see serious knee injuries. fan favorites going down is hard to handle.

  15. Adept says: Nov 22, 2009 8:04 PM

    @Bech72
    What is it if they lose to the Raiders?

  16. rpberteliot says: Nov 22, 2009 8:13 PM

    I agree Jones has looked proficient filling in for Kampman.
    I also wish all the extremists would stop being so extreme. McCarthy’s playcalling based off jealousy of Favre? That had better be a joke.
    The injury to Harris worries me simply because he and Woodson feed off eachother’s production. Our defense will be okay, but it doesn’t help matters. Bottom line is that these things happen, and if you’re worth your salt as a team you’ll pull through.
    Good news is our offense is still good-getting-better and we play the Lions, followed by a break that couldnt be any longer without having a bye-week to face Baltimore.

    Al Harris has a torn ACL according to the Packers’ team Dr.
    Both are huge injuries. Kampman is their best rusher by far. Even though his sacks are down, he still gets a lot of pressure on the QB.
    Pack will rebound and make the playoffs.

  18. Mike McCarthy's Moobs says: Nov 22, 2009 8:23 PM

    Aaron Kampman is really having a rough couple of years. First his hometown got devastated by a tornado. Then his high school football coach got murdered (yes that really happened). Then the idiot Packers coaches play him out of position this season. And now a season-ending ACL injury in his contract year. What’s next, is his wife divorcing him? Swine Flu? Herpes?

    The so-called “non-factor” had a sack today.

    Gotta love more Vikings fans posting their happiness than Packer fan posting get well soon. What a bunch of tools.
    Speedy recovery to both, the Packers will overcome, every team has injuries.

  22. Pack83 says: Nov 22, 2009 8:30 PM

    Kampman just hasn’t been a factor this year, period. Harris hurts, but he isn’t what he used to be. If the Pack beat Detroit and hold serve at home (Ravens and Seattle in December) they’ll probably need to win 1 out of 3 against at Pittsburgh, Chicago, Arizona. Not a sure thing by any stretch, but they look like a different team since the Tampa debacle.

  23. DCViking says: Nov 22, 2009 8:54 PM

    I would guess the Harris injury is more hurtful to the Pack’s chances (who have 2 quality wins in the last two weeks after the Tampa debacle) than Kampman. Not knowing much about the who the Packers have behind Kampman — it may be a blessing for the team as he seems completely out of position in that OLB role. They may find somebody better suited for that position.
    Never want to see anyone get hurt — hope they recover by next year.

    The tools would be GB fans. They have proven that in spades this season. Fake funerals and burnings of memorabilia. All the complaining and crying about Favre this season. Again, GB fans aren’t that special, just another NFL fanbase. No more loyal than any other fans.

    Even though he is a Packer, I have a lot of respect for Aaron Kampman. I think he is a good player who could really help a teams pass rush if used properly. As for Al “Milli Vanilli” Harris, he is a dirty player who I have no respect for. I remember him diving at Adrian Peterson’s knees 2 years ago in a blatant attempt to injure him. Al, you got what you deserve today.

  26. Vikes-N-Favre says: Nov 22, 2009 11:44 PM

    I hope Kampman will be alright. The guy is a class act all the way, and he deserves better then what he got this year in GB. He is a pass rushing DE, and he gets moved to LB, what a joke. He will end up on a team next year that deserves his talents, so obviously that won’t be GB. Get well soon Kamp.
    Al Hairyass, all I can say to that piece of crap is Karma is a bitch. All that guy does is grab facemasks, and goes after knees. Its about time he receives a injury that he puts on other players. The only thing that would have made it better is if a player grabbed his facemask at the same time his knee was being injured, then maybe he would have realized what he does so often to other players. So have fun in rehab, and get a haircut Screwface.

    What a bunch of idiots on this site. My goodness.

  28. nerd says: Nov 22, 2009 11:54 PM

    Wow, a poster named after Jared Allen calling Al Harris a dirty player. LOL.
    Apete hit his thigh on Harris’s helmet, iirc. Harris wasn’t diving at anyone. He’s just a tough bump and run corner. Quit your whining and find someone who can man up against him.

    “he is a dirty player who I have no respect for. I remember him diving at Adrian Peterson’s knees 2 years ago in a blatant attempt to injure him. Al, you got what you deserve today.”
    It’s called a tackle, dude. If you don’t like it, then don’t watch it.
