With the injury to Johnny Jolly, rookie defensive tackle Justin Harrell needs to make a move. Onto the active roster. (How sad is it when your 1st round pick is a healthy scratch - again.) Colin Cole and Harrell were both inactive against the Panthers, which no doubt contributed to Jolly playing through his shoulder injury and returning to the game. But all reports indicate the swelling is bad and that the team's medical staff want to shut him down for at least two weeks.
Of course, it just happens to be the two weeks that will define the Packers' season.
Justin Harrell has been the object of much derision since being picked in the first round by Ted Thompson. Now is the time for him to show the fans, the media, the team, and most of all, himself, why he was worth the sixteenth overall pick in the 2007 draft. Carpe Diem indeed.
