Just a few short months later, Harris is the team's starting running back. During last week's Packers-Vikings preview, I called Harris' the team's X-factor. His aggressive running style was impressive against the Vikings in the regular season, and he followed that up with 100 yards from scrimmage against Minnesota.
Harris keeps in touch with his old bosses at the car dealership. He plans to go back to selling cars during this offseason.
"I just got off the phone with them," Harris said. "They just told me they sold 10 cars. That's live. That is live. Why not be a part of that?"
It may not have quite hit Harris yet that he could build a long career in the NFL. His emergence reminds me a lot of James Starks' breakout postseason after the 2010 campaign. Starks himself is expected to join Harris in the backfield this week, but it will probably come in a secondary role. Harris looks like the team's best backfield option.
"I think he's kind of a 'Transformer,'" quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. "There's more than meets the eye with DuJuan."
