Harrell hits yet another setback for Packers

Justin Harrell has what seems like a career's worth of setbacks in his barely over one season of service with the Green Bay Packers.

It's possible Harrell could miss even more playing time this season after yet another setback just a couple weeks ago.

"Justin Harrell isn't jumping to conclusions, but he acknowledged this morning that it's possible he'll need more surgery after suffering a setback with his injured back," reports Tom Pelissero of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

It all started with Harrell's torn biceps in his senior year of college, which the Packers were well aware of prior to drafting him. Of course, they knew it would take some time for him to recover last season, but he was also dogged by a lingering ankle injury as well, which impeded his lack of playing time early in the season.

Then this offseason, he incurred a back injury to one of his discs while lifting weights. Reports have said he was back lifting weights in June, but just had another setback last week. What exactly that setback was isn't known. One could assume it would be by lifting weights again, but that would be pure speculation.

The more the Packers have issues at defensive tackle, the more it looks like Daniel Muir could be playing a larger role than expected this season.
