DuJuan Harris is out for the season in Green Bay because of a knee injury that will likely require surgery. This opens the door for rookie Eddie Lacy to assume the starting running back position for the Packers.
Lacy currently has an Average Draft Position of 48 in 12 team formats. You can expect to see a slight boost in that number during the course of the next few days.
Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy says he was extremely disappointed because he wanted to use both backs as a “1-2 punch.”
McCarthy was high on Harris throughout the offseason, but he will have to modify his regular season game plan in short order.
