DuJuan Harris (26) and Micah Hyde (33) will remain the Packers' top two kick return options.

After two kick returns Thursday, running back DuJuan Harris was yanked at kick returner in the first half for safety Micah Hyde.

On both, Harris took a kickoff from deep inside the end zone and tried to make a play out of it. On both, he was tackled short of the 20-yard line.

"I thought we made a poor decision on the one prior to the change," Packers special teams coordinator Shawn Slocum said Monday. "Just wanted to make sure we were composed back there and Micah did that."

Slocum said only the second return was wrong, not both.

"The second one, he was going to take a touchback and then brought it out," Slocum said.

Hyde and Harris each had two kickoff returns. Hyde gained 49 yards total on his returns, while Harris had 40.

Slocum said there will be no changes to the depth chart for Sunday's game against the Jets. and follow him on Twitter @ByRyanWood
