Ugh – feel really bad for Harrell. He worked hard on getting back up to speed and I was hopeful he’d provide some needed depth this year on the D-Line. Just feel bad for him. Can’t imagine we’ll keep him going forward and I would think his prospects of being picked up elsewhere should rehab go OK are slim.
Grant’s injury looked pretty ugly so I’m not surprised at all that he’s out for next week. Brandon Jackson is fine and ended up doing OK yesterday though he only averaged 3.5 ypcarry. It was funny, he was so clearly given a specific instruction from McCarthy to not fumble under any circumstances and I think this actually prevented him from having a better per-carry average. The good thing is that he didn’t fumble, of course.
Again, Jackson is fine for now, but I still think we need to add some depth to the RB group. As much as I like the energy Kuhn ran with yesterday, I think we need another pure RB back there. My guess though is that the Packers will make do with Jackson, Kuhn and possibly RB James Johnson (from the practice squad) until Grant returns and/or James Starks can play come Week 7.
