Training camp look in: Lacy, Harris appear ready to play

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 14, 2013 – 12:50 pm

GREEN BAY–Eddie Lacy and DuJuan Harris were each full participants in a hard-hitting half-line drills period on Wednesday, which would suggest the two running backs are expected to play in Saturday night’s preseason game in St. Louis. Lacy, a rookie second-round draft pick, and Harris, the incumbent starter at running back, would seem to be the top competitors for the position.

Meanwhile, running back James Starks did not practice on Wednesday, and neither did wide receiver Randall Cobb, who’s been battling a bicep injury that sidelined him in last Friday’s preseason opener against Arizona. Lacy returned to full participation on Wednesday from a hamstring injury that kept him out of last Friday’s game. Harris is in his first week of practice since the start of training camp.

Packers.com will provide a full report following practice.

    Good news!!! I feel that Lacy and Harris will likely be our starters come the regular season. I’m excited to see what they do if they play vs. the Rams!!

    It will be great to see some punch and lightning at RB position this year. It will provide an offensive dimension which hasn’t been a strength for sometime.

    thank god for lacy and harris. i knew something would happen to starks. all we ever hear about him is how good he looks in practice but he always looks slow and unsure of himself in games and i know were all tired of him/alex green always getting hurt.

    Lacy, Harris and Franklin will be awesome for the Packers. I think it is time to trade/cut Starks and Green. Starks does good in training camp but always appears to be slow and indecisive in games, and Green… Well, he just isn’t that great.

    Vic,

    You are an expert on the Oxford comma, but you can’t get that “bicep” is not a proper word? It’s the biceps muscle. Biceps. Got it?

    Who really cares Francis????? Bicep, Bicep, Bicep.

    I agree with you mazovoid we dont need 5+ running backs. Green and Starks need to go.

    In training camp the more backs the better. Let the cream rise to the the top and the rest go out with the whey.Whom ever they choose I hope have strong HEALTHY year and that one of them can rush for 1000 + yards.

    a good running game will make everone better. it will help Rogers and will help keep the offence on the field longer which will help the defence
