DuJuan Harris getting second opinion on injured knee

Green Bay Packers running back DuJuan Harris came off the physically unable to perform list just two weeks ago and saw his first preseason action against the Seattle Seahawks on Friday night.

His appearance was brief after getting the start as he injured his right knee in the second quarter after getting tackled on a screen pass.

According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, head coach Mike McCarthy said Harris is seeking a second opinion on his knee.

If the injury is serious, it may give the Packers starting running back job to Eddie Lacy almost by default.

The group of Packers’ running backs didn’t have the strongest showing against the Seahawks either carrying 18 times for just 32 yards with 31 of those yards coming on one carry from Alex Green in the fourth quarter.

  1. Against the Seahawks, Graham Harrell was the QB. The defense put 8 in the box, knowing Harrell couldn’t throw it far enough to get it past them.

    Running game will be fine.

  2. The packers RB’s wasnt the ONLY position on that team that was struggling. the O-line was dead, the WR’s looked just like they are.. ROLE PLAYERS. the defense sucked, Rodgers didnt play nothing but 3 downs. I BELIVE RODGERS IS HURT!
    and the coach looked confused. the schedule WILL expose the weak teams in the North

  3. I like DuJuan but Lacy is more of a game changer. Not to mention he is going to be salivating if teams try to play variations of the Tampa 2 defense they did to stop Aaron Rodger’s passing game late last season. I can’t wait to see Lacy get to the second level and put a Safety flat on his back. Then if you stack the box Rodgers goes over the top to Jones or Nelson. I know it is an IF, but IF the Packers can establish a running game, look out.

    Give Seattle credit – they have a good run defense. Although my understanding is that once Rodgers went out after the first series the Seahawks put 8 men in the box.

    Hard to run under those circumstances, and hardly anything to be concerned with. With Rodgers in the game, I’m guessing the Packers will see little to no 8 man fronts.

  6. The RB position in Green Bay is just this historic ongoing weird muddle of uncertainty. It’s like John Brockington is sitting somewhere in dark candle-lit Louisiana room with a bowl of chicken blood sticking pins in a wax Packer RB doll.

    Rodgers will have to make 500 attempts again this year. Not only are their running backs a joke, but also the run blocking.
    ________

    500 attempts? What is this, 1981? Even Ponder had almost 500 attempts last year.

  8. Jones, Nelson, Cobb out wide…Finley at TE and Lacy in the backfield with Rodgers at QB.

    Stack the box…Rodgers will eat you alive.

    Play cover 2….Lacy will steamroll.

    PACKERS!!!!!!!!!!!
