    Default Steelers' Harrison has back surgery

    Steelers' Harrison has back surgery
    Monday, February 21, 2011
    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
    Gene J. Puskar/APSteelers linebacker James Harrison sacks Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco during the second half of an NFL divisional playoff game Jan. 15 at Heinz Field.Steelers linebacker James Harrison underwent surgery on his back this morning that coach Mike Tomlin labeled a "success."

    Harrison was scheduled to have the surgery on his lower back a week earlier but it was delayed when he came down with a fever.

    Dr. Joseph Maroon performed what's known as a discectomy to remove a piece of herniated disc off a nerve that had been bothering Harrison all season.

    "Everything went great," said Bill Parise, his agent. "the consensus was no one could figure out how he could play through the season. It was significant but textbook. The surgery went exactly as they wanted it to. James' recovery should be complete."

    Tomlin also said today that he expects all of his players who were injured or had surgeries over the past year to be ready for the 2011 season. They include offensive tackle Willie Colon and wide receiver Limas Sweed, both of whom had ruptured Achilles tendons last June and missed the 2010 season. Others are offensive tackle Max Starks (neck surgery), defensive end Aaron Smith (triceps surgery) and those who have had surgeries since the season ended, among them wide receivers Hines Ward (knee) and Emmanuel Sanders (foot).

    The coach added that he expects his entire staff to return except for Ray Horton, who took a job at the defensive coordinator of the Arizona Cardinals. Tomlin said he is in no rush to hire a new secondary coach to replace Horton.

    Back surgery is a scary thing... I trust that he had the finest care available! Just hope it doesnt lead to any lingering pain/spasms in the near future. We need at least another 3 dominate years out of #92 to achieve the now sought after 7th title!

    That's cool. It nice to see the team leaders taking initiative to keep some sense of a normalized routine going. A little gesture like that can go a long way.

    They sure make it sound like it's no big deal, but anything with the back has the potential to end ones career prematurely. It's amazing Harrison could play all year with that.

    No surgery for Roethlisberger
    While players such as Hines Ward (knee, thumb) and Emmanuel Sanders (foot) need surgery to repair injuries, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said his injured right foot does not need surgery "as of now." Doctors have told him they will let his foot heal without surgery.

    Roethlisberger has a fracture in his right foot that was originally detected by the Steelers in the 2007 season -- an injury that occurred years earlier during his childhood. But the fracture healed on its own when protective fibers formed around the bone, creating what is known as "fibrous union." Those fibers were sprained when Roethlisberger injured his foot against the New England Patriots, and, again, against Buffalo.

    I'm glad to hear that because Ben and his receivers need to learn the mind reading stuff. They need more practice to know routes, air time, speed, which way to turn and look for the ball, where to lead a receiver, and the receivers learning to read the defenses.
