Harris says he’ll return this season

Packers cornerback Al Harris said Wednesday he will be back on the field with Green Bay this year after major knee injury abruptly ended last season.

In his first comments in the Packers locker room since the injury, Harris said he never thought about calling it quits.

“There’s no doubt in my mind. If there were, then I wouldn’t be here, standing here now,” the 13-year veteran said after the second of four public organized team activities this offseason.

Harris tore a ligament in his left knee on Nov. 22 against the 49ers while defending San Francisco wide receiver Michael Crabtree. He needed season-ending surgery and there had been questions whether the veteran would return.

Harris said it was tough to watch Green Bay lose to the Arizona Cardinals in the first round of the playoffs in January.

“That was hard, the bits and pieces that I did watch,” he said. “It’s still hard to watch, even watching practice. But that’s a part of it, and that fuels you, to watch the guys go out there and work, to watch your friends play cohesive as a group.

Havner arrested following crash

Green Bay Packers tight end Spencer Havner was arrested this week on suspicion of drunken driving after crashing his motorcycle in Northern California, suffering a broken shoulder blade.

The California Highway Patrol says the 27-year-old Havner was arrested Monday after the accident about 2:45 a.m. some 50 miles north of Sacramento.

Mark Humenik, whose agency represents Havner, says the player should be “fully recovered in short order.” Messages left with the Packers and the NFL were not immediately returned Wednesday.

The district attorney’s office in Nevada County, Calif., say they are awaiting the police report before deciding whether to file any charges against Havner.

Former LB Havner now pass-catching threat for Pack

Nobody expected the Spencer Havner experiment to work out quite like this – not even Havner himself.

Three months after coaches let the backup linebacker begin taking snaps at tight end in training camp, Havner has become a bona fide pass catching threat.

Making the most of his increased playing time in the wake of an injury to tight end Jermichael Finley, Havner has caught three touchdowns in the Packers’ past two games, tying him with Donald Driver for the team lead.

“All he does is catch touchdowns,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers said.

Not bad for a guy whose standout career as a linebacker at UCLA previously led him to nothing more than life on the fringe of the NFL with three separate stints on the Packers’ practice squad.

Green Bay Packers players help build playground at Nicolet Elementary School in Green Bay

As a wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers, James Jones has enjoyed some memorable moments on the playing field.


On Tuesday, he was excited to join teammates in a different kind of endeavor: building a playground addition for students at Nicolet Elementary School on Green Bay’s northeast side.

“It’s big to be able to come out here and put some smiles on kids’ faces,” Jones said.
He was joined by teammates Al Harris, T.J. Lang, Breno Giacomini and Evan Dietrich-Smith in the playground project, a partnership with Brown County United Way.

It was part of the NFL-United Way Hometown Huddle, a community outreach effort marking its 11th year in NFL communities throughout the country.

Short-passing game aiding the run

In the early 1990s, Mike Holmgren’s Green Bay Packers couldn’t run the ball. Not with any kind of consistency anyway.


So early in his first season, 1992, the former Packers coach used a substitute, the short-passing game, with mostly check downs and screens.

From 1992 to 1995, Holmgren’s Packers never averaged more than 3.7 yards a carry for a season, hardly the kind of running game that gave opponents pause and certainly a liability against the league’s best defenses. But in those same four seasons, Holmgren compensated, to a degree at least, by throwing to his backs:

Vince Workman and Harry Sydney (98 catches combined) in ’92, and Edgar Bennett from ’93 to ’95 (an average of 66.3 receptions a season).

Packers have easy time with Lions

The Green Bay Packers moved back toward their roots in the West Coast offense with good, but not great, results.


They surely accomplished their most important goal on Sunday at Lambeau Field, beating the under-talented and short-handed Detroit Lions 26-0 in a game that was about as easy as wins come in the NFL.

But the Packers also are searching for the rhythm to an offense that figured to be one of the NFL’s best but instead has been underwhelming early in the 2009 season.

To that end, they turned to more of a short, ball-control passing game that moved the ball with far more ease (435 yards) than in the previous four games.

But it was far from an unmitigated success because of familiar problems that have short-circuited them since the start of the regular season, namely penalties (seven on offense) and leaky pass protection that though improved from their last game at Minnesota, still allowed five sacks.
