Packers defensive tackle Harrell out


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers defensive tackle Justin Harrell was held out of Tuesday morning's practice with back spasms.

It's the latest injury to beset the 2007 first-round draft pick. Harrell has played in only 13 games because of injuries.

Harrell earned strong reviews from the coaching staff during the first week of training camp, but he's barely practiced since.

General manager Ted Thompson says the NFL is all about what he calls "accountability and durability." He says Harrell has had his share of bad-luck injuries.
