This follows up a cryptic message and photo Harris posted on his Instagram social media account, which shows a bandage below his right pectoral muscle and exclaiming “Thank God for team physicals!!!”
Harris had not previously taken part in any practice open to the public this offseason.
The second-year running back elaborated on his Twitter account after our original posting:
EVERYTHING IS FINE, dr.s found a fist sized cyst on my lung next to my heart. Shows the importance of getting routine check-ups, GET YOURS!

UPDATE: While declining to discuss specifics of Harris’ procedure, head coach Mike McCarthy confirmed during his Tuesday press conference that Harris would miss the rest of the team’s offseason program.
McCarthy also said he expect Harris to be ready for training camp, which begins on July 26.
