Harrison Going for a Second Back Surgery

National Football Post reports that James Harrison is having ANOTHER back surgery today, putting even more pressure on the Steelers to get something long term done with LaMarr Woodley in case Harrison’s injury is worse than first thought.

What’s going on with Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison? Now, he’s having a second back surgery today after recently undergoing a first procedure. “I’ll be going back in today to do surgery again, so it’s back to 6 weeks of down time instead of 5,” Harrison wrote. “o’well better to have caught it now instead of a month from now.”

Recently, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said it was a successful procedure and that a piece of herniated disc was removed from a nerve. “Everything went great,” agent Bill Parise told the Post-Gazette. “The consensus was no one could figure out how he could play through the season but the surgery went exactly as they wanted it to and James’ recovery should be complete.” Apparently, not complete enough.
