Green Bay, WISCONSIN (WXOW) - The injuries keep piling up for the Packers.

On Tuesday, they lost a second projected starter on offense is lost for the season.

This time it's running back Dijuan Harris.

Harris re-aggravated a knee injury on Friday night on this play against Seattle.  

Harris said he knew he was hurt, but not that his season would be over.

He told reporters it's a problem with his patellar tendon which will require surgery. 

Coach Mike McCarthy re-tooled his running game in the off season with the intent of featuring Harris, a guy who took the long road to the NFL and now he faces another long journey just to get back.

"After surgery I gotta work my butt off and when I do you'll see me again.  It's definitely not the end of my career.  I don't think everything is over cause it's not," Harris said.

"Dujuan was a big part of my focus for the season. Saw him last week for the first time in that 1-2 punch with Eddie, that has now changed," said McCarthy.
