Steelers OLB James Harrison Out Several Weeks With Fractured Orbital Bone
Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin just announced that starting right outside linebacker James Harrison will miss several weeks due to a fractured right orbital bone in his face that he suffered Sunday against the Texans. Tomlin said Harrison will have surgery on Wednesday to get it repaired. Tomlin will have a better idea of how long he will be out following surgery.
Tomlin said Lawrence Timmons will replace Harrison at outside linebacker and Larry Foote will replace Timmons inside. Jason Worilds will also likely be out with a quad strain. I will have a full recap of the Tomlin press conference up shortly.
