Packers HC Mike McCarthy views RB DuJuan Harris as his starter
Packers running back DuJuan Harris hasn't practiced since training camp opened, and he is not expected to practice for about two more weeks as he recovers from a knee injury. But when he returns, head coach Mike McCarthy says Harris will play a prominent role.
"I'm excited to see when DuJuan Harris comes back, because I view him as our starter," McCarthy said Thursday. "I want him to get back in there and earn it like he did all of last year."
There's probably a spot for Harris on this team, but it's not starter. That will probably Eddie Lacy, and these words from McCarthy may be a ploy used to keep him motivated after he was the best player on the field during the team's scrimmage last week. Lacy is being bothered by a hamstring injury right now, but there's been nothing to signal that it is serious. He is a low-end RB2.
