Green Bay Packers Sign Justin Cheadle and DuJuan Harris to Practice Squad

Phil Sears- US PRESSWIRE

General Manager Ted Thompson has announced today that the Green Bay Packers have signed two new players to their practice squad, adding offensive lineman Justin Cheadle and running back DuJuan Harris.

Cheadle is a rookie this season and played for the University of California where he started 35 of his 47 games. Cheadle went undrafted, but was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs during the preseason but was later released.

As for Harris, he may be a running back signed to the practice squad, but with how desperate the Packers are at the running back position, it will be interesting to see how Harris performs on the practice squad. Most practice squad players don’t get any attention or consideration for any significant playing time, but the Packers are thin at running back and good use his help if Alex Green doesn’t start performing better.

Harris already has some NFL experience during his rookie season last year with the Jacksonville Jaguars where he carried the ball nine times for a total of 42 yards. Just like with the Packers, Harris was on the practice squad for the Jaguars to start the season, but was promoted up during Week 12.

He spent this preseason with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but failed to make the team. Harris played at Troy University where in his four years there rushed for 2,635 yards and ran for 27 touchdowns. He also caught 79 passes for 553 yards and five touchdowns. Harris’ college career and brief stint in the league should give the Packers a glimmer of hope that Harris can be an effective running back for them in the future.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

For someone who played like a MVP all season long, Carson Palmer has looked anything but tonight against the Green Bay Packers. If he doesn't redeem himself in the fourth quarter, the No. 2 seed Arizona Cardinals will be sitting at home watching the playoffs with the rest of us next week.

Packers' Lacy Needs Oxygen After This Run

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy doesn't look like he's missed any meals recently, if you catch my drift. Despite the extra weight he's carrying around these days, Lacy was able to bust out into the open field for this huge 61-yard run.
