Injury To Packers RB Harris Clears Way For Lacy

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013 at 7:28 am

Packers placed RB DuJuan Harris (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season. Harris had been listed as the starter on the Packers depth chart, but now that job will fall into the hands of rookie RB Eddie Lacy.

Coach Mike McCarthy made the announcement on Harris on Tuesday. Harris injured his right knee twice over the course of OTAs and the preseason, and likely needs surgery.

Lacy will open the season as Green Bay’s clear-cut lead back, and possibly operate as an every-down back so fantasy football guys are wise to take note. Alex Green, Johnathan Franklin, and James Starks round out the depth chart, probably in that order.
