From JSOnline.com:

In the Packers' 21-14 victory over the Bears, Harris hit Rodgers low, and as Rodgers fell backward, his foot got caught in the turf and his knee bent awkwardly. On replay, it looks as though Rodgers should have suffered a serious injury...

It turns out Harris did pull up as he hit Rodgers. He told the Chicago Tribune on Thursday that he wasn't into injuring players, especially one he has gotten to know through receiver Greg Jennings' charity events.

"I went for his legs and I let go of them," Harris said. "I could have squeezed them if I wanted to. I wouldn't do that."

It hasn't been the best season for Harris, he's been battling injury and been fined more than once this season, but he was good to the Packers on that play.
