GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Green Bay Packers’ running back DuJuan Harris will be put on the injured reserve list with a knee injury he aggravated in Friday night’s exhibition loss to Seattle.
He’ll be out for the season, unless the Packers name him as their one IR player they’re allowed to bring back in the middle of the campaign.
Coach Mike McCarthy said it’s too early to tell what Harris’ designation will be yet.
With Harris gone, running back James Starks might have increased his chances of making the team. McCarthy said he was excited about the camp Starks had, as he practiced every day and did more on special teams’ than in the past.
The Packers held their final practice of Training Camp Tuesday. Kicker Mason Crosby made a strong case to hold onto his job, as he made all 14 field goals he attempted – including kicks from 64 and 65 yards out.
Zach Ramirez, whom the Packers brought in on Sunday, booted just 6 of 16. McCarthy said both kickers practiced both with and against Tuesday’s wind – and he said he’s not ready to give Crosby the job just yet.
The Packers will play their final exhibition game on Thursday night at Kansas City.
