by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (8/26/14) Packers running back DuJuan Harris played so well Friday against the Raiders that he's now pushing James Starks for the No. 2 spot on the depth chart, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Harris rushed 12 times for 56 yards and caught passes of 31 and 11 yards.
"That's a question that has yet to be determined," running backs coach Sam Gash said of the pecking order behind Eddie Lacy. "We're still going through the process."
Added offensive coordinator Tom Clements: "Obviously, Eddie's our top runner. After that, we're going to mix guys in there and see where it goes."

08/19/2014 10:40 2014 Draft Prep: The RB landscape
Owners typically go one of two ways with running backs. It's either invest early or stockpile late. Our Jamey Eisenberg shares his philosophy for Draft Day 2014.
James Starks re-signed with the Packers this spring, making him the most likely candidate to back up Eddie Lacy this fall. Of course, he'll have to fend off the likes of DuJuan Harris and Jonathan Franklin for that right. Starks only has real value as a handcuff to Lacy – if something happens to the second-year bruiser then Starks would catapult into Top 20 range at the running back position. But until then, he can be safely taken with a late-round pick.
