Bedard is reporting that Mike McCarthy told someone at USA Today this week that Al Harris will begin the season on the PUP list (meaning he’d miss the first 5-6 regular season games). While I’m not totally surprised given the seriousness of his injury, I was holding out hope Harris might be ready by game 3-4 or so. I’m not thrilled about this because I do think Harris’ presence in the line-up provides a certain stability. But I also don’t think at this particular point, he’s likely to be much better than Tramon considering Al hasn’t played/practiced for so long. The bigger issue, as Bedard notes, is who will then start at the nickel position?
