It was a tough night for the Green Bay Packers on Friday. Not only did they lose a close game to the Seattle Seahawks, but also a key player in DuJuan Harris. After rushing three times for just two yards, he went down; sustaining a knee injury at the end of an 11-yard screen pass. It was the middle of the second quarter and he would not return to the game. Afterwards, he stated that he wasn't worried about the injury according to Tyler Dunne. DuJuan Harris didn't sound concerned at all about his injury in the locker room. Same knee. Says he's fine. — Tyler Dunne (@TyDunne) August 24, 2013 Harris missed the first couple weeks of training camp with a minor knee injury, but by the time he returned to action his job as the starting running back was secure. However rookie Eddie Lacy, who entered camp looking to steal the job from the entrenched Harris, remained right on his tail. After a solid showing in his second preseason game, Lacy demonstrated the tools that led the Packers to select him in the second round of the draft. His physicality and speed are sure to provide Aaron Rodgers with a solid running game for years to come and it is clear that he will be the future on the ground in Green Bay. DuJuan Harris, for now at least, remains the starter. Unfortunately, his 2012 playoff heroics will not keep his job safe for much longer. In order to stay in the favor of the coaches he will need to remain healthy and outplay Lacy; not to mention the other exceptional backs that are now fixes on the Packers roster. Though his knee shouldn't be a problem, Harris's days as a starter in the Bay seem numbered. UPDATE: DuJuan Harris was placed on IR Tuesday. His year was ended by the knee injury he suffered during the Packers-Seahawks preseason game. Harris said the injury is to his patellar tendon, but that it is not ruptured. "I didn't think it was going to be season-over trouble," Harris said. "But ... if it's for the best and better long-term, hey, I'm all for it." The Packers brought in former Jet, Joe MckNight, for a workout. However, it doesn't appear as though Green Bay needs any more assistance at the running back position, as they already carry three. Losing Harris was a gigantic blow to the team and it will be interesting to see how they will fair running by committee this season. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
