That plan was altered when a "minor" knee injury landed Harris on the active/physically unable to perform list entering training camp.
Harris could miss the entirety of training camp, which will put him behind the eight ball for a spot on Green Bay's final roster.
The backfield logjam means at least one tough decision will have to be made.
The Packers do have the luxury of stashing Harris on reserve/PUP for the first six weeks of the regular season. That move would buy time against a trade or release of Green or Starks. It also would allow Harris' fresh legs to function as a late-season shot in the arm for the second consecutive year if the Packers suffer injuries at the position.
