Packers Running Back DuJuan Harris Has Cyst Removed

The Green Bay Packers found and removed a cyst on the right lung of running back DuJuan Harris, according to a league source. He will need a couple weeks to recover.

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:

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.

Geez, I hope he's OK.

Packers strength and conditioning staff strikes again. This never would have happened if he were on the 49ers.

Exactly...the 49ers are savvy enough to know that extra 1.2 lbs = stardom.

A proper stretching regimen could have prevented this... Such a shame.

I read somewhere the cyst was the result of the feet-first fumble recovery drill...when will McCarthy ever learn?

Christ! That's a big muthafuggin cyst, yo!

Evan's picture

In all seriousness, though. I'm glad his injury was finally revealed and that it was nothing serious.

lmills's picture

agreed. hope this doesn't effect his pad level.

RC Packer Fan's picture

I completely agree. I don't know if it would be considered 'not serious' but in a football sense, yeah, nothing serious.

Glad he is doing well and looking forward to seeing him when the Pads come on.

Get well DuJaun! Incase you or your family look here, the sarcasm above has nothing to do you (they are mocking a troll named cow). We are all rooting for you!

Does this make him undersized?

Point Packer's picture

49'er medical staff would have removed this cyst before it ever appeared. Obviously.

Wilson Maywick's picture

No, if he had been on the 49ers, they would have seen the cyst for what is really was...just an inflamed awesomeness gland.

This guy will never play a down of football for the Green Bay Packers again. 3-13

I'm glad it wasn't one from the tailbone. That picture I would not want to see. LOL

Point Packer's picture

Undersized, prone to injuries and not a 49'er. The guy is done.
