Packers Place RB Harris on Injured Reserve

Green Bay, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- The Green Bay Packers have placed running back DuJuan Harris on injured reserve after he re-injured his knee in Friday's preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks, head coach Mike McCarthy officially announced on Tuesday.

Harris had dealt with a similar injury the entire offseason, with that forcing him to miss most of the team's workouts and the first two weeks of the preseason.

After starting the team's final four games of 2012, including two playoff games, Harris was the presumptive starting running back for Green Bay headed to the regular season.

He said Tuesday the injury is related to his patella tendon and that it will likely require surgery, although he's not sure when that will happen.
