Packers place RB DuJuan Harris on IR

After injuring his knee last Friday against the Seahawks, Packers RB DuJuan Harris will now miss the rest of the season, the team announced today. At first, the injury didn't look that serious, but today's placing of him on the IR said otherwise. Harris was a huge part of the team's running game last season, and his presence will certainly be missed. 

Now that Harris is off the table, it appears that Eddie Lacy, Jonathan Franklin, James Starks, and Alex Green will have to fill his void. In my opinion, Lacy should be the guy who gets the most snaps. So far in preseason, he's clearly been the best, while Starks and Green have never been good and Franklin just doesn't seem ready to play.

Based on the Seahawks game, this would seem to open the door for Alex Green. I agree that Franklin doesn't look ready.

And I feel terrible for Harris, who was a long shot to make any NFL roster in the first place, and found himself succeeding in Green Bay with a coaching staff that believed in him.
