Green Bay Packers RB DuJuan Harris (knee) has been placed on Injured Reserve and will miss the 2013 season after a negative second opinion on his knee.
Huddle Up: Tough news for Harris, who was a late-season find for the Pack a year ago, but his absence will further add to the fantasy momentum of rookie starter Eddie Lacy.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said RB DuJuan Harris (knee) will get a second opinion on his injured knee. McCarthy said he is not sure if Harris will be able to play Week 1.
Huddle Up: This is bad news for Harris, but great news for Eddie Lacy. Harris has been bogged down by injuries all offseason and preseason, and he's not exactly Adrian Peterson. If Lacy has a nice start to the season, it might spell doom for Harris as the starter.

Green Bay Packers RB DuJuan Harris (knee) has been activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list and participated in practice Monday, Aug. 12.
Huddle Up: The starter-in-name finally gets a chance to prove it after sitting out training camp to this point. Harris has a fight on his hands with Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin, but the fact he is still the starter despite his recent health issues is promising for him and his potential owners.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said he is looking forward to seeing RB DuJuan Harris (knee) practice because he considers Harris the team's starting running back. 'I'm excited to see when DuJuan Harris comes back, because I view him as our starter,' McCarthy said. 'I want him to get back in there and earn it like he did all of last year. He made an impact in our offense.' Harris is currently on the Physically Unable to Perform list and expected to miss another week or two.
Huddle Up: With rave reviews coming out of camp about Eddie Lacy, it seemed like the job was his to lose. But it seems like DuJuan Harris still holds the keys despite being unable to practice thus far. This is an intriguing camp battle to watch; whoever wins could be a big fantasy producer this season.

Green Bay Packers RB DuJuan Harris is listed as the starting running back on the team's first depth chart of the preseason.
Huddle Up: The Pack has yet to play a preseason game, and it'll be interesting to see if Harris can hold off rookies Eddie Lacy and Jonathan Franklin to earn the Week 1 starting call.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday, July 30, that RB DuJuan Harris (knee) will be sidelined another two to three weeks.
Huddle Up: Harris came on strong at the end of 2012, but with the Packers adding rookie RBs Eddie Lacy and Jonathan Franklin in the draft, it's not a good time to be MIA with an injury.

Green Bay Packers RB DuJuan Harris (lung) vows to be ready for the first day of training camp July 26. He had a 'grapefruit'-sized, non-cancerous cyst removed from his lung. 'I'll be ready,' Harris said over the weekend. 'I'll be there.'
Huddle Up: Harris had 100 rushing yards and 2 TDs in a pair of playoff games to nearly match his regular-season output (157, 2 TDs) in 2012, but any fantasy momentum he had has been muted by the offseason surgery and the Packers' decision to spend 2nd- (Eddie Lacy) and 4th-round (Jonathan Franklin) draft picks on RBs.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said RB DuJuan Harris will get the chance to compete for the starting job next season. McCarthy said he would like to use only two running backs next season and not five running backs like he did in 2012.
Huddle Up: The Packers still have several viable free-agent options (say, Ahmad Bradshaw) and the draft to upgrade at the position. But Harris performed well when given the opportunity last year and would have obvious fantasy upside if he's the lead dog in a smaller Green Bay RBBC.
