Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel - [Full Article]

Cornerback Al Harris won't play for the Green Bay Packers this season.

Harris told ESPN 540 in Milwaukee that the Packers were going to release him on Monday.

Attempts to reach Harris all day Sunday were unsuccessful, but doubts about whether the Packers thought he had enough left to activate him from the physically unable to perform list popped up when the club didn't active him for the third consecutive week.

Harris began practicing three weeks ago Monday, and the deadline for making a decision on his future is Monday. The Packers' options are to activate him, release him or put him on injured reserve.

Harris was coming back from a catastrophic knee injury he suffered against San Francisco a year ago. He spent all off-season working feverishly to get his knee back in shape, but at 35 years old the odds were against him.

The Packers appear set at the nickel position with rookie Sam Shields, who had his first career interception, but also was beaten for a touchdown and several other completions. Behind Shields, the Packers have Pat Lee, who missed the Dallas game with an ankle injury, and Brandon Underwood, who has been playing only special teams.
