A. Harris (US Presswire)
In a move that surprises no one, the Green Bay Packers have put cornerback Al Harris on the Physically Unable to Perform list. Jim Corbett of USA Today broke the news after speaking with Mike McCarthy.

The 35-year-old Harris is coming off major reconstructive surgery after blowing out his knee in Week 11 last year. The Packers are comfortable (enough) with Tramon Williams as the replacement No. 2 corner. In filling this role down the stretch last season, Williams proved to be a superb athlete who needs to hone his technique. Penalties were a problem for fourth-year pro.

McCarthy stressed that Harris is “definitely getting better”, but obviously, he’s not well enough to play in the first six games in 2010.

The greater concern in Green Bay’s secondary is at safety. Third-round rookie Morgan Burnett is filling in for injured Atari Bigby at strong safety (Bigby is still recovering from ankle surgery and has also been placed on PUP). Burnett, who left Georgia Tech after his junior year, flashed playmaking potential in offseason workouts and minicamps, but in the preseason, he has been somewhat of a liability in coverage.

Our secondary will be fine. I trust the players we have will do enough. Plus there's always the chance that TT pulls off a trade and brings in either an OLB or a D.B.

The Packers are good, right now just about all the contenders have issues at D.B. I'm not worried.

In TED I trust????

We could go into the start of the season with Sam Shields as our nicket back. In Ted I trust but he better have hit a home run with Burnett or he could be tampering with a very close Super Bowl team. Passing defense was and still is a HUGE question mark. In Ted I trust...Go Pack!
