Packer RB DuJuan Harris made a bold statement Friday night against the Oakland Raiders, performing so well as a runner, receiver and blocker that it's anyone guess if he or James Starks is the No. 2 back behind Eddie Lacy.
"That's a question that has yet to be determined," said Sam Gash, the first-year running backs coach. "We're still going through the process. The head coach has an idea what he's going to do, but I'll kind of leave that on him."
The club's depth chart, marked as unofficial, lists Starks as No. 2 and Harris as No. 3.
From a practical standpoint, the hard-hitting Starks, who comes off probably his finest season, and the irrepressible Harris both could factor from scrimmage depending on the play call and situation.
"Obviously, Eddie's our top runner," offensive coordinator Tom Clements said. "After that, we're going to mix guys in there and see where it goes."
Perhaps the one bad part about being a Lacy owner is not knowing his handcuff. But it looks like if Lacy were to ever miss time this season, it very well could be a split with Starks and Harris, as both have looked good.
