Pack faces tough decision on Harris

Packers CB Al Harris is still hoping. And so are the Packers. Hoping he'll be on the active roster for the start of the season and not the PUP (physically unable to perform) list. There still is a little time to go before the required final roster cut to the 53-man squad, but it sure seems likely the Packers will face a tough decision with regards to Harris. If he's not 100 percent for the first game or two, do you allocate a roster spot for him anyway in the hope he's ready to go in game 3 or 4? Or, do you give that valuable roster spot to someone else for at least the first 6 games of the season, the required number of games Harris would have to sit out if he is placed on the PUP list? Guess this is why management gets the big bucks, eh?

For how Harris views his situation, check out's Jason Wilde's article. Harris says it like it is: "“I won’t step out there too early and I won’t step out there too late." But what exactly that means...well, read the article here.
