Harrison working his way back

Posted by Teresa Varley on August 21, 2012 – 4:03 pm

The Steelers are strong at linebacker, but injuries have taken their toll this training camp with James Harrison and Jason Worilds on the PUP list since camp started and Stevenson Sylvester now out with a knee injury.

But there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

When asked on Tuesday if it is realistic that he will be back in time for the season opener in Denver on Sept. 9, Harrison said, “I think so,” even though he doesn’t anticipate playing in any preseason games at this point.

Harrison isn’t sure when he will be able to return to practice, but does know he will need some practice time before he is game ready.

“We just have to go through each day and see how I feel,” said Harrison. “I think I might need a little preparation. We’ve got a couple of new things but other than that I think I’ll be all right.

“You have to get your timing back with the other guys and everything else. A few days of practice will help.”

Harrison had arthroscopic surgery on his knee during camp, but isn’t concerned about it bothering him down the road.

“Just actually getting out there and doing field work and cutting caused it to blow back up. I couldn’t let it go any longer,” he said. “The scope cleaned it up. I’m not worried about it.”

    Hopefully James will return when his body is ready. He is a beast and will work his tail off to get there. I hope the fines didn’t change the way the man plays ball!

    Harrison IS a beast!
    I remember on Monday night when Collingsworth couldn’t help but notice Johnson and Harrison collide at the line and Johnson’s day was pretty much over after that.
    He said “Wow, Harrison is a beast.” Exact words.

    I also know how to shut Warren Sapp up.
    Hey! Look! Here comes Joey Porter! (haha)
