DuJuan Harris shows he's arrived in NFL


Green Bay - Every Super Bowl winner needs the unsung hero. Victor Cruz in 2011. James Starks in 2010. On championship teams, someone usually rises from anonymity.

On Saturday night, one play announced DuJuan Harris as Green Bay's 2012 candidate.

The second-year running back took a pitch right, stopped on a dime, cut left and met Jamarca Sanford head on a full three yards shy of the goal line. Harris avoided a clean hit - Sanford hanging onto the running back's left foot - and lunged in for the score.

This undrafted, forgotten, practice-squad footnote is a footnote no more. In Green Bay's 24-10 win over Minnesota, Harris had 100 total yards. He's the Packers' top running back.

"You never know what the future brings," Harris said. "Tomorrow could be something else. You never know. You just have to be prepared for any type of situation that comes up."

Notebook: Harris to get opportunity to be starter at RB
Mar 20, 2013

PHOENIX — After missing out on free-agent running back Steven Jackson, the Green Bay Packers plan to give DuJuan Harris a shot at the starting job this season.

Though undersized for an every-down back, the 5-foot-8 and 203-pound Harris was the team’s most productive ball carrier last season. He averaged 4.6 yards per carry in limited regular-season work late last year and added two touchdowns in the playoffs while rushing for 100 yards on 28 carries over the two games.

“Oh, he’s going to play for us next season,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “That’s his responsibility if wants to be the starter.”

Harris was signed off the street to the practice squad on Oct. 24 and promoted to the active roster on Dec. 1.

“I wish we would have had DuJuan earlier,” McCarthy said. “He was a young man that we were just getting ready to try to put in the game. Everybody’s like ‘Just put him in there.’ Well, hell, you put him in there, there aren’t too many runs in our offense where we can’t go to a pass, and now he’s protecting for Aaron Rodgers.

“That’s why there’s a lot of stress schematically and responsibility-wise on our running backs, and that’s not going to change because of our quarterback. Once he got ready, I felt great about the way DuJuan finished the season. Looking forward to having him for an offseason and look for good things for him.”
