Green Bay Packers RB DuJuan Harris (knee) is hopeful of being part of a 1-2 running back punch with RB Eddie Lacy next season. He entered training camp as the team's starting running back, but a right knee injury sidelined him in the offseason, recurred in the preseason and landed him on season-ending Injured Reserve. He said at midseason that there was fluid on the knee and irritation of the patellar tendon, but no structural damage after surgery in August. He expects to be ready for the offseason program and organized team activities (OTAs) in the spring.

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said RB DuJuan Harris (knee) was going to have a big role on offense this season as part of a tandem with RB Eddie Lacy before he was placed on Injured Reserve. "You have a vision, packages in place on how you're going to start the season. I'll just tell you this: DuJuan was a big part of particularly my individual focus for this season. Last week was really the first opportunity to play DuJuan and Eddie Lacy in a game as kind of a 1-2 type punch format, and that has now changed," McCarthy said.

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.
Fantasy Tip: Eddie Lacy is expected to step in to start and becomes a low-end RB2 with more realistic RB3 expectations. His value makes sense in Round 5 or so in your average setup. Fellow rookie Johnathan Franklin had a tough camp but now gets a chance to showcase his natural shiftiness as a fantasy flyer.

Green Bay Packers RB DuJuan Harris (knee) missed his second consecutive practice Monday, Aug. 26, after suffering a setback with his knee injury in the team's latest preseason game. He is expected to get a second opinion on the injury.
Mon, 26 Aug 2013 12:21:03 -0700
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.
Fantasy Tip: Eddie Lacy appears to be the top choice to be the team's starting running back to open the season. Lacy should be considered a No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues this season. Harris should only be drafted as a handcuff to Lacy in deeper leagues.

Updating a previous report, the right knee injury suffered by Green Bay Packers RB DuJuan Harris (knee) in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 23, against the Seattle Seahawks is not believed to be serious.
Fantasy Tip: Harris iced the knee, and was walking on the sideline without any issue. It is likely good news for RB Eddie Lacy, who appears to be the favorite to enter the regular season as the starting running back.
Fri, 23 Aug 2013 18:15:53 -0700
Green Bay Packers RB DuJuan Harris (knee) left the preseason game Friday, Aug. 23, against the Seattle Seahawks, and he was icing his right knee on the sidelines.
Mon, 19 Aug 2013 21:15:43 -0700
Green Bay Packers RB James Starks fumbled in the preseason game against the St. Louis Rams over the weekend, and he was last in the rotation of running backs behind RBs DuJuan Harris, Eddie Lacy, Johnathan Franklin and Alex Green.
Mon, 19 Aug 2013 05:10:03 -0700
Green Bay Packers RB Johnathan Franklin hasn't been impressive thus far in training camp. "He looks like his numbers," a personnel man said. "He's not a real impressive guy. He plays small, and he doesn't play fast. I kind of liked him in college because he was so productive. But if you didn't know he was a draft pick, you'd think he was a free agent."
Fantasy Tip: DuJuan Harris is listed as the team's starter on the depth chart in the preseason, but Eddie Lacy still figures to be the main man in the team's backfield to open the season. Franklin's stock is dropping behind the other two backs and probably isn't worth a draft pick at this point unless you're in a very deep league.
Fri, 16 Aug 2013 18:58:45 -0700
Green Bay Packers RBs DuJuan Harris (knee) and Eddie Lacy (hamstring) have returned to work as limited participants of the team portion of practice this week, after being restricted to just individual drills earlier in the week.
Wed, 14 Aug 2013 09:19:26 -0700
When healthy, Green Bay Packers RB DuJuan Harris (knee) is a player considered to be almost as good of a pass blocker as a rusher. That will help his bid for a spot on the 53-man roster.
Mon, 12 Aug 2013 11:05:26 -0700
Green Bay Packers RB DuJuan Harris (knee) has been activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list and participated in practice Monday, Aug. 12.
Fri, 09 Aug 2013 20:22:09 -0700
Green Bay Packers RB James Starks led the team with 38 rushing yards on 12 carries in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 9, against the Arizona Cardinals. RB Alex Green checked in with seven carries for 16 yards, while RB Johnathan Franklin posted six scampers for 14 yards. RB Eddie Lacy (hamstring) did not play due to a hamstring injury, and RB DuJuan Harris (knee) was absent due to a knee.
Fantasy Tip: None of the RBs stood out, and the backfield remains a jumbled mess heading into the second preseason game. DuJuan Harris and Eddie Lacy are also in the mix, and he is expected to be the team's starter. However, there are questions whether Lacy could handle the every-down duties without frequent breathers.
Thu, 08 Aug 2013 11:38:23 -0700
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.
Fantasy Tip: Harris is listed as the starter for now but there is a chance the order will change as the preseason goes on. This news does hurt Eddie Lacy's value some since he is not viewed as a starter. If Harris is able to keep the starting job entering the season, he probably would be a low-end No. 3 running back because Lacy could take the job at some point.
Mon, 05 Aug 2013 15:39:25 -0700
Green Bay Packers RB DuJuan Harris is listed as the starting running back on the team's first depth chart.
Tue, 30 Jul 2013 20:46:59 -0700

Fri, 26 Jul 2013 05:22:26 -0700
The Green Bay Packers placed RB DuJuan Harris (lung), OT Derek Sherrod (leg), OT JC Tretter (ankle), DL Jerel Worthy (knee), SS Sean Richardson (neck), FS Chaz Powell (undisclosed) and DE Mike Neal (undisclosed) on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Fri, 19 Jul 2013 16:07:39 -0700
Green Bay Packers RB DuJuan Harris may not be a candidate for the starting running back job because he may is too small to be an every-down back.
Tue, 02 Jul 2013 15:26:05 -0700
Green Bay Packers RBs Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin are locks to make the roster. The rookies will be joined by some combination of Alex Green, DuJuan Harris (lung), James Starks and undrafted rookie Angelo Pease. Green and Starks have received first-team reps this offseason with the rookies studying the system and Harris sidelined.
Fantasy Tip: No back besides one of the rookies should be drafted in fantasy leagues. This will be a situation to watch during the season, but it looks like Franklin might be a better draft-day value than Lacy in what should be a shared backfield that already has to work on its running game plan.
Sun, 16 Jun 2013 20:41:44 -0700
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."
Fantasy Tip: Harris has plenty of competition for carries during training camp and the preseason, as he will be battling Alex Green, James Starks and rookies Johnathan Franklin and Eddie Lacy for touches.
Wed, 05 Jun 2013 12:40:04 -0700
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said RB DuJuan Harris (lung) will not participate in any of the remaining offseason workouts but is expected to be ready for training camp. Harris said on his Twitter page that he had a cyst removed from one of his lungs.
Wed, 20 Mar 2013 14:24:14 -0700
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.
Fantasy Tip: Harris performed well when he joined the Packers near the end of the season, averaging 4.6 yards per carry during the regular season. The Packers could still look to add another running back this offseason, which makes Harris' value a question mark at this point. The team does not run the ball a lot, so Harris should be seen as a No. 4 running back until his role on offense becomes clearer.
Fri, 18 Jan 2013 10:17:55 -0800
The Green Bay Packers feel the need to find a lead back heading into the 2013 season, and that man may not be on the current roster. The Packers shuffled through as many as six running backs this season and weren't satisfied with any of their options. Among the unrestricted free agents they could target this offseason include St. Louis Rams RB Steven Jackson, Miami Dolphins RB Reggie Bush, Dallas Cowboys RB Felix Jones and New York Jets RB Shonn Greene. Green Bay would likely be interested in Jackson in the secondary market because he'll be 30 this year.
The Packers had some success using RBs DuJuan Harris, Alex Green and James Starks, but only enough to occasionally draw an opponent's safety into the box. "If you're running the ball and they're closing the middle of the field and bringing an extra guy down, it obviously plays to our strengths as a pass group," running backs coach Alex Van Pelt said. "There were times when I thought we forced their hand and they had to stop it, but we'd obviously like to be more consistent and more productive from start to finish." Harris has plenty of potential, but his lack of size led him to wear down at the end. Green Bay is unlikely to take another chance with RB Cedric Benson and the team might not be willing to pay Starks $1.323 million given his injury history.
Fri, 11 Jan 2013 15:49:11 -0800
Green Bay Packers RB Alex Green, Ryan Grant, James Starks and DuJuan Harris combined for only 25 catches during the regular season. RB Cedric Benson (foot) caught 14 passes and was on pace for 44 catches this season before he was placed on Injured Reserve.
Fri, 11 Jan 2013 15:48:13 -0800
Green Bay Packers RB DuJuan Harris caught five passes for 53 yards in the Wild Card playoff game after catching only two passes in the regular season. The Packers did not use Harris as a receiver at first because they were not comfortable having him in the backfield protecting QB Aaron Rodgers. The coaches are more comfortable with Harris in the role and he has been on the field for more passing plays over the last three games than any other running back except for FB John Kuhn.
Sun, 06 Jan 2013 18:44:09 -0800
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Sunday, Jan. 6, that RB DuJuan Harris has "something to do with" the team's growing focus on the run game.
Wed, 02 Jan 2013 14:13:56 -0800
Green Bay Packers running backs coach Alex Van Pelt said RB DuJuan Harris practiced without sleeves Wednesday, Jan. 2, to try and get comfortable playing in cold weather. Van Pelt said ball security could be a factor in the cold weather but Harris has big hands for his size which should help in that area. RB Ryan Grant could receive more carries in the Wild Card playoff game because he has played in cold weather playoff games before. Van Pelt said RB Alex Green will be available to the coaches whenever they need him to play.
Wed, 02 Jan 2013 13:47:53 -0800
Green Bay Packers RB DuJuan Harris may the team's primary running back in the team's Wild Card playoff game even though head coach Mike McCarthy has not named a main running back for the game. McCarthy said the team will get Harris, RB Alex Green and RB Ryan Grant ready to play and will see how the game is going before deciding which back will get the most carries.
Wed, 26 Dec 2012 19:29:02 -0800
Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday, Dec. 26, that he plans to use RBs Ryan Grant, Alex Green and DuJuan Harris in the Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He plans to use the hot player, and not play favorites.
Thu, 20 Dec 2012 16:42:32 -0800
Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) is dealing with a bone bruise in his right knee, and head coach Mike McCarthy plans to have him back for the playoffs. "Yeah, it's a lot better," Starks said. "Just how I was bent, when you look at it, it looked a lot worse. So I just thank God for being able to possibly come back and do well. So no real, serious bad injuries." Starks hasn't been able to practice but he's been staying busy in the weight room. In his absence, the Packers have gone with a combination of RBs Alex Green, DuJuan Harris and Ryan Grant.
Mon, 10 Dec 2012 00:17:27 -0800
Green Bay Packers RB DuJuan Harris rushed seven times for 31 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown during his team debut in a Week 14 win over the Detroit Lions.
Fri, 07 Dec 2012 09:40:48 -0800
Green Bay Packers running backs coach Alex Van Pelt is concerned with RBs Ryan Grant and DuJuan Harris due to their lack of playing time this season. The main concerns are ball security and blocking. Grant will especially need to focus on holding onto the ball tight since he hasn't been hit in a while after not playing at all this season. Harris will likely make his debut on offense in Week 14.
Sat, 01 Dec 2012 17:42:53 -0800

Sun, 17 Jun 2012 17:39:04 -0700
The Jacksonville Jaguars used RB Deji Karim on kickoff returns last season, but he was released in the offseason. That means the team is looking for a return man, and WR Kevin Elliott, RB DuJuan Harris, RB Rashad Jennings, RB Jalen Parmele and WR Chastin West are among the candidates who are likely to get a look in the preseason.
Wed, 14 Dec 2011 20:10:19 -0800
Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said Wednesday, Dec. 14, that RB DuJuan Harris might be the most improved player on offense. "I give DuJuan a lot of credit for how hard he's worked at learning everything you have to learn to play running back in the NFL," Koetter said. "I think (running backs coach) Earnest Byner should get some credit the time he's spent working with DuJuan."
Mon, 05 Dec 2011 16:55:04 -0800
Updating a previous report, Jacksonville Jaguars RB Deji Karim is inactive for Week 13 against the San Diego Chargers, but he is healthy. He is reportedly falling out of favor, especially with the new coaching regime, as FB Brock Bolen and RBs DuJuan Harris and Montell Owens appear to be ahead of him.
Wed, 30 Nov 2011 14:47:44 -0800
