Packers running back DuJuan Harris will sit out several weeks after surgery to remove a cyst, but he expects to be ready for training camp.

Harris wrote on Twitter that when doctors were performing his team physical, they found “a fist sized cyst on my lung next to my heart.”

Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters today that he expects Harris to miss the remainder of minicamp and Organized Team Activities but be ready for the start of training camp. Harris said he expects to be back to work “very soon.”

The Packers signed Harris to their practice squad in October and promoted him to the active roster in December. He started two regular-season games and both of the Packers’ playoff games. This year he’s part of a crowded running back competition that also includes rookies Eddie Lacy and Jonathan Franklin, and veterans Alex Green and James Starks.

    Wouldn’t count this kid out. He knows what it’s like in the real world and will give everything he has to stay in the NFL.

    Nice humble guy glad he made it through ok. Something that big next to the heart had to be a little scary.

    I think its more scary that his heart seems to be located in the wrong spot.

    I’m not a Packers fan, but best wishes to this kid. Surgery like that is no joke.

    He should be even quicker without having to lug that thing around.

    Thrilled the Pack picked up Franklin and Lacy.

    Still want to see this guy own the spot. Such a great success story if he does.

    He must’ve got surgery done in another state other than Wisc.
    Because, in Wisc. the team doctors cure everything w/pain meds &/or codeine.

    Have three backs on the same team ever had 1,000 yard seasons the same year?

    (I mean, before the Packers RBs this season)
