Packers get options at RB with Harris and Lacy

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Coach Mike McCarthy is getting more options in the Packers' backfield.

Incumbent starter DuJuan Harris is itching to play after missing time with a knee injury.

Rookie Eddie Lacy has Green Bay fans buzzing after showing off his spin move and power-running style in his preseason debut last week against the Rams.

The running backs will be in the spotlight in the Packers' third preseason game Friday at home against the Seahawks, what McCarthy dubs the "dress rehearsal" for when the real games start in a few weeks.

Any improvement in the running game, which ranked 11th last year in the NFC, could help the rest of an offense already feared for its passing game.
