Packers will start season with CB Al Harris, S Atari Bigby on reserve list

The Green Bay Packers will begin the regular season without two standouts in their secondary.

The Packers have placed cornerback Al Harris and safety Atari Bigby on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, meaning neither player will be eligible to play for the first six weeks of the season.

Bigby had surgery on his left ankle at the beginning of training camp. There had been some hope Harris' surgically repaired left knee would heal in time for the Packers' Sept. 12 opener at Philadelphia.

The Packers also placed running back James Starks on the list, and running back Quinn Porter on injured reserve. The Packers' roster now stands at 75 players.
