Report: Harris may be out for season

According to reports starting to hit the media, veteran Packers cornerback Al Harris ruptured his spleen in last night's game versus the Cowboys and may be lost for the season.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette is reporting the following:

"Packers coach Mike McCarthy said after the game that blood was detected in Harris’ urine. At his Monday afternoon press conference, McCarthy said the team was conducting further tests on Harris. The Web site National Football Post first reported the severity of Harris’ injury today and said the team was seeking a second opinion before declaring Harris out for the season. Harris’ agent, Jack Bechta, is one of the founding members of that Web site."

If Harris can't play, backup Tramon Williams -- who got burned on the long back-breaker TD pass from Cowboys QB Tony Romo to backup receiver Miles Austin last night -- will likely get the start.
