Al Harris Injury - Season Finished?

Story Update:
Al Harris was able to return to the Packers after missing only a few games.

Green Bay Packers starting cornerback Al Harris could miss the rest of the season with an injury suffered during the Packers game versus the Dallas Cowboys. It is being reported that Harris suffered some internal bleeding and may have ruptured his spleen. Harris is currently undergoing more tests. Jack Bechta Harris's agent is quoted as saying "He would most likely miss the season, it would just depend on the severity," "But we don't have any definitive information except there was a rupture. Now we have to get him to a specialist as soon as possible."

The injury to Harris would be a significant blow to the Packers defense as he made the Pro Bowl last year. While he was out against the Cowboys his replacements played well overall, however gave up a couple of long passes which were real momentum shifters for the Cowboys. The Packers during that game were already playing without starting safety Atari Bigby and there other starting cornerback Charles Woodson did not practice at all last week because of a broken toe. Woodson however did start and finish the game and played well shutting down the Cowboys Terrell Owens all night. Tramon Williams is likely to get the start in Harris's place.
