Pack RB Harris to miss '13

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Packers starting running back and Brooksville Central High graduate DuJuan Harris is out for the season after injuring his right knee last week.

Harris said Tuesday he hurt the patella tendon against Seattle and hoped to have surgery soon. He hurt the same knee during the offseason.

"It is what it is, you know? It's something I've got to go through and must be done," Harris said. The knee appeared to bother him after he was flipped over near the sideline by a defender during Friday's 17-10 preseason loss. Harris said the knee was troubling him before that play.

Hernandez grievance: The Players Association filed a grievance to help former Patriots star tight end Aaron Hernandez collect an $82,000 bonus. The former Florida star's contract provided for that amount if he participated in 90 percent of voluntary offseason workouts. Hernandez's arraignment on murder charges is set for Sept. 6. "We are not tone-deaf to what the allegations are in this case," the union said in a statement, "but for the benefit of all players, there are important precedents here we must protect."

Upset Vikings: The league ruled that a hit to defensive lineman Kevin Williams' knees Sunday was legal and that San Francisco's Joe Looney won't be disciplined. "That's absolutely absurd," Vikings defensive end Jared Allen said. "You talk about player safety and wanting to protect us, how is Kevin not a defenseless player?"

BRONCOS: Derek Wolfe practiced for the first time since his arms and legs went numb after a hit in a preseason game at Seattle 10 days earlier. Showing his neck was fine, the defensive end swiveled his head from side to side.

COWBOYS: Defensive tackle Jay Ratliff will miss at least the first six games of the season with hamstring and groin injuries.

DOLPHINS: Guard Lance Louis, who signed a $1.6 million, one-year deal in March (with only $100,000 guaranteed), was among nine players cut.

49ERS: The team confirmed it traded outside linebacker Parys Haralson to the Saints for an undisclosed 2014 draft pick.

JETS: Wide receiver Santonio Holmes practiced for the first time since a serious foot injury in September, but was unsure if he will be ready for the season opener, Sept. 8 against the Bucs.

LIONS: The team released Norwegian kicker Havard Rugland, who became an Internet sensation last year after posting a YouTube video called "Kickalicious" featuring trick kicks.

PANTHERS: Veteran running back Jonathan Stewart will miss the first six games as he recovers from an ankle injury.

PATRIOTS: Former USF tight end Evan Landi was released, and former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow stayed after another round of roster cuts.

SEAHAWKS: As expected, receiver and former Florida star Percy Harvin (hip) will miss at least the first six games.
