Al Harris’ Recovery Time “Tremendous”

74 6

We’ve been detailing the recovery of Green Bay Packers’ cornerback Al Harris from major knee surgery with help from the National Football Post’s video series.

We missed the last installment, which was posted a couple of weeks ago, because we were too busy blathering on about the draft. But that’s over now, so I thought we’d check in with Al again. There’s been continued talk of Harris starting the season on the PUP list, meaning he couldn’t play for the first six games of the season. However, he not only looks good, but Harris’ doctor says he’s doing better than people with lesser injuries.

“His recovery time has been tremendous. He’s doing things better than what people are doing after they come out of an ACL injury and he’s torn five major things off the lateral side of his knee.”

Seems like it’s going to be tough to keep Harris off the field once the season starts and that’s good news for the Packers.

Check the video for more.

    “We missed the last installment, which was posted a couple of weeks ago, because we were too busy blathering on about the draft.”

    Not only were you blathering about the draft but also blathering about how deperate we should feel at the corner position. As I see it Harris has continuously taken critism during his career, only to turn it it to motivation to show all his doubters how wrong they are when it comes to him. We also need to realize that with 4 CB’s going down with injury last year was a freak thing. And we should feel fortunate these players should all make a healthy return. I also have to disagree with Chris on his depth chart projection. Seeing as how Shields will mostly contribute on ST and will most likely be a project at CB. That said it is my opinion the following would be more likely: Woodson, Harris, Williams, Underwood, Lee and maybe one more TBD.

    Can’t forget Blackmon Cheesybrat! I think he’ll be a great nickle or dime player…also who knows what kind of progress Underwood will make, so as long as nobody get’s hurt this season in our backfield (knock on wood) I truly think our secondary shouldn’t be a problem.

  3. Cheesybrat

    Yeah I will give you that one Cody, if Blackmon can stay healthy he may be the 4th CB on the depth chart while Underwood and Lee could battle it out for the fifth spot. Yet I wouldnt be suprised to see Underwood step up big time this year!
