That is probably just a nod to Harris' experience on the team last year, but Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel notes that McCarthy's ideal 1-2 punch probably would be Lacy and Harris.
Fourth-round draft pick Johnathan Franklin, meanwhile, has struggled. The UCLA product has 16 carries for 40 yards combined in the team's scrimmage and preseason games.
"He looks like his numbers," a personnel man told McGinn. "He's not a real impressive guy. He plays small, and he doesn't play fast."
Franklin, touted by many as a draft steal, is a safe bet to make the team because of his draft status, but he's probably not headed for much of a role as a rookie.
