49ers re-signed RB DuJuan Harris.
Harris was let go at "final cuts," but it was likely because he didn't have to pass through waivers. The 49ers almost certainly intended all along to re-sign him. He slides in behind Carlos Hyde, Shaun Draughn and Mike Davis. Sep 5 - 1:11 PM

Date:

49ers released/waived RB DuJuan Harris, WR Dres Anderson, OL Alex Balducci, OL Fahn Cooper, CB Prince Charles Iworah, OL Norman Price, LB Marcus Rush, WR Ryan Whalen and WR DeAndrew White.

Harris has always been an intriguing talent, but can't stick on anyone's 53-man roster. Saturday is his 28th birthday.
Sep 3 - 5:04 PM

49ers RB DuJuan Harris rushed 16 times for 67 yards and caught 8-of-12 targets for 86 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Rams.

Playing the role of "Shaun Draughn" in Geep Chryst's offense, Harris piled up chunk plays as the primary checkdown target of Blaine Gabbert. Harris outplayed rookie Mike Davis (10-34) and put some good things on tape. Harris has bounced around the league, so he needed positive game film. He'll probably enter some team's training camp fighting for a No. 3 running back job in 2016.
Jan 3 - 8:12 PM

49ers RB DuJuan Harris rushed 11 times for 73 yards and caught 1-of-2 targets for 11 yards in San Francisco's Week 16 loss to Detroit.

Although Kendall Gaskins led the 49ers' backfield after Shaun Draughn's knee injury last week, and Jarryd Hayne got the nominal start against the Lions, Harris showed the hottest hand in the backfield on Sunday. The 49ers' backfield distribution is unclear entering a Week 17 date with the Rams. Draughn figures to resume lead back duties if he can gain medical clearance.

49ers signed RB DuJuan Harris.

He was plucked off the Ravens' practice squad. Harris was set to lead the Seahawks' backfield last week before getting waived. Now he could form a committee with Kendall Gaskins if Shaun Draughn isn't ready for Sunday's game against the Lions. Harris isn't a recommended add for Week 16.

Ravens signed RB DuJuan Harris to their practice squad.

Harris looked on track to be the starter in Seattle at the beginning of the week, but he was surprisingly released on Tuesday. Now he is on the practice squad of the team he saw 18 carries against last Sunday.

Seahawks waived RB DuJuan Harris.

It's a surprise, as coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Harris would compete with Bryce Brown to start in Thomas Rawls' absence. Harris' release paves the way for Brown to get a heavy workload against the Browns' bottom-three run defense. Veteran Fred Jackson will serve in a change-of-pace role. Be sure to cancel your Harris waiver claims if you're still alive in the fantasy playoffs.

Coach Pete Carroll said RBs DuJuan Harris and Bryce Brown will compete to be the Seahawks' starting running back.

Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) remains without a timetable to return and continues to rehab off-site. Thomas Rawls suffered a season-ending ankle injury on Sunday, leaving Harris, Brown, and fullback-type Derrick Coleman left for the early-down role. Carroll said Fred Jackson isn't an option to start, and he'll be left as the third-down, passing-game back. Harris is a run-of-the-mill talent, while Brown is an electric runner but a turnover-prone knucklehead.

Seahawks RB DuJuan Harris rushed 18 times for 42 yards in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Ravens.

Harris -- not Fred Jackson (8 touches) -- took over as Seattle's primary early-down runner after Thomas Rawls fractured his ankle in the first quarter of Sunday's win over Baltimore. Harris now looks like the best bet to operate as the Seahawks' lead back in a Week 15 date with the Browns. The Seahawks view Jackson as a change-of-pace type, passing-down specialist. Harris also lost a fumble in scoring position during Sunday's victory, but the coaches stuck with him.

Vikings waived RB DuJuan Harris.

Harris, 27, beat out Joe Banyard, but was outlasted by Dominique Williams and Matt Asiata behind Adrian Peterson and Jerick McKinnon at Vikings camp.

Vikings signed RB DuJuan Harris, formerly of the Packers, to a one-year contract.

A restricted free agent, Harris wasn't tendered a contract by the Pack. An MJD-esque 5-foot-8, 203 pounds, Harris has always offered bowling-ball appeal as a change-of-pace back, but has had trouble with injuries. Especially if the Vikings keep Adrian Peterson, Harris is going to have a hard time cracking Minnesota's crowded backfield.

The Packers are not tendering exclusive rights free agent RB DuJuan Harris a contract, making him a free agent.

Going on 27, Harris carried the ball 16 times last season, gaining 64 yards (4.0 YPC). He played just 51 snaps on offense. Harris missed all of 2013 with right-knee issues. A diminutive 5-foot-8, Harris has always offered some pop as a change-of-pace back, but wasn't going to be climbing the depth chart any time soon in Green Bay.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Bob McGinn writes that DuJuan Harris has made a push for the Packers' No. 2 running back job, and "it's anyone's guess" if it's Harris or James Starks.

"That's a question that has yet to be determined," said RBs coach Sam Gash. Harris lost a fumble in the Pack's second preseason game. He came back and exploded for 98 yards on 14 touches in Friday's dress rehearsal against the Raiders. Harris and Starks mixed in with the second-team offense after Lacy left the game. Coach Mike McCarthy loved Harris before he ruptured his patellar tendon last August. It's a battle worth watching closely.

DuJuan Harris rushed 12 times for 56 yards and caught two passes for 42 yards in Friday's preseason game against the Raiders.

Coming off a ruptured patellar tendon, Harris was surprisingly quick and explosive. It's something coaches must have seen in practices, as he mixed with No. 2 back James Starks after Eddie Lacy left. Through three preseason games, Harris has 26 carries for 106 yards and five catches for 50 yards. If Lacy were to go down in the regular season, Harris appears to have earned a role.

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Packers RB DuJuan Harris' 2013 knee injury was a ruptured patellar tendon.

We knew the injury was to Harris' patellar tendon, but not that it was ruptured. This is an injury that commonly derails running back careers, most notably and recently Cadillac Williams and Ryan Williams. Ruptured patellar tendons can sap explosion. Harris participated in OTAs, and in June coach Mike McCarthy stated Harris "looks like he's back to full strength." Harris projects as Green Bay's No. 3 tailback this season, behind Eddie Lacy and James Starks.
