Little running back coming up big for Green Bay

DuJuan Harris wasn't much of a car salesman. Didn't sell a single one, in fact, in the week he was working at a Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge dealership in Jacksonville, Fla.

That's OK. As the Green Bay Packers have discovered -- and the rest of the NFL is quickly learning -- the pint-sized running back is far better suited for a job in the NFL.

Elevated from the practice squad Dec. 1, Harris' speed, elusiveness and surprising power have helped give the Packers the consistent run game they've been trying to find all season. The Packers (12-5) play at San Francisco (11-4-1) on Saturday in an NFC divisional game.
