    Steelers LB Harrison scheduled for back surgery...Update 2/21, Surgery successful

    NFL.com Wire Reports

    Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison said he is scheduled to undergo surgery on his right shoulder Monday.

    "Should only be down 4 to 6 weeks," Harrison tweeted Friday.

    Harrison injured the shoulder during the Steelers' AFC divisional-playoff victory over the Baltimore Ravens, but he played in Super Bowl XLV, recording one tackle and one sack in the 31-25 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

    The four-time Pro Bowl linebacker was unhappy with his performance in the title game.

    "I don't feel anything but pain," he said after the game.

    Harrison comes off another impressive season in which he had 10.5 sacks. He's a problem for receivers and tight ends coming across the middle, and for offensive linemen trying to protect their quarterbacks. Harrison was fined $100,000 by the NFL for illegal hits this season.

    Harrison was named the NFL Defensive Player of the Year after the 2008 season, and he capped that campaign with a 100-yard interception return for a touchdown in Super Bowl XLIII.

    Ward just underwent surgery last week as well, so did Emmanuel Sanders. All the players are rushing to get their operations in before March 4 when their health insurance runs out if a new CBA isn't reached.

    Yeah, it's good to know that at least the players and our front office are on the same page, there doesn't seem to be any issues whatsoever between them. The Union as a whole and the NFL/Owners is a whole other issue though.

    Sanders is awesome, he frequently responds to fans on his Facebook page, he once responded to me!

    Don't post there very often, but I was excited when it happened, haha.

    It was hard not to notice that 92 wasn't 100%. I wonder if his shoulder got hurt while he was being held?

    Most reports say he injured the shoulder in the AFC Divisional Playoff against the Rats.

    Can anyone else fathom having an injury that would constitute surgery, and continuing to play for 2 games after the injury occurred?
