Aaron Rodgers and DuJuan Harris both exited Friday night’s preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks early but for very different reasons.
Where Rodgers left the game voluntarily after playing just one series for the Green Bay Packers, Harris slowly walked off the field after getting hurt after picking up 11 yards on a screen pass from Graham Harrell with 10 minutes left in the second quarter.
According to Jason Wilde of ESPNMilwaukee.com, Harris had his right knee wrapped with ice on the Packers’ sideline. Harris started the game for Green Bay for his first preseason action since coming off the physically unable to perform list on Aug. 12. A knee injury was the reason Harris began training camp on the PUP list for Green Bay.
Harris was replaced by Eddie Lacy in the Packers’ backfield. If the injury is serious enough to impact Harris’ availability for the start of the regular season, Lacy could find himself getting the starting nod against the San Francisco 49ers in Week One.
