GREEN BAY, Wis. -- DuJuan Harris didn't want his family to worry. After reinjuring the patellar tendon in his right knee in Friday's preseason game, the Green Bay Packers' 24-year-old running back made sure to walk off the field under his own power, even though it was painful. When Harris called his mother to give her the bad news, he didn't cry.
