    Packers head coach Mike McCarthy, going off the input from the team's medical staff, isn't so sure that cornerback Al Harris will be ready for the start of the season after he suffered a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee in a game Nov. 22 and underwent season-ending surgery eight days later. Harris has been doing rehab work at a facility in his native South Florida the past two months and after being optimistic at the outset of his recovery that he could be back on the field in six months, Harris, 35, recently suggested the knee isn't close to being fully healed. McCarthy hasn't ruled out Harris not being in uniform opening day, but the coach is hopeful of having his trusted starter from the get-go to pair with Charles Woodson, the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year. "I wouldn't bet against Al," McCarthy said. "It's like anything, you can't ever just put a timetable on a knee injury because they are all a little different. His was significant, just using (team doctor) Pat McKenzie's words."

    Harris is behind his prime and we badly need a replacement for him
