He's not on the field for the Green Bay Packers after knee surgery, but DuJuan Harris says his fellow running backs are the best in pro football.
“I feel like we have the best backfield in this league by the numbers,” said Harris to the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
“We have a lot of guys that can take over the starting job and get out there and make some runs. The guys who yall didn’t even think were going to play were the guys who got 100 yard games.
After a sub-par rushing day against the San Francisco 49ers, the Packers have had two running backs break 100 yards:
- James Starks in their 38-20 win over Washington on Sept. 15
- Jonathan Franklin in their 34-30 loss to Cincinnati on Sept. 22
Harris is missing the 2013 season after being placed on injured reserve due to his knee injury.
