I have a feeling if we don't see him back the game after the bye, we may never see him back again. If it's still shot at that point, I would expect him to need further surgery. I also would not expect us to continue paying him 10 mil a year to pilot crutches around the facility.

It would be great if he does come back and is still dominant, but I'm not that hopeful of it.

Crap.
Try to spin it anyway you want, it doesn't matter if it came from Steelers Depot or not, the report is out there and hoping for the best right now seem like the only hope there is. I believe DeCastro will be seen on the field at Heinz before Harrison will.

James Harrison Leaves Practice, Knee Is 'Bothering Him,' According to Source

By Neal Coolong ON SEP 26, 2012



Injured Steelers linebacker misses the team's last practice before the bye week.

Post-Gazette reporter Ed Bouchette reported (via. Jamison Hensely of ESPN) Steelers outside linebacker left the south side facility this afternoon without practicing, and a source told Bouchette his knee is "bothering him."

Harrison had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Aug. 15, and has barely practiced since. He did do some work before Pittsburgh's Week 1 game at Denver, but was ruled inactive for that game as well as those in Weeks 2 and 3.

How much any of this means is suspect. The Steelers don't play this weekend, and it would seem strange they would trot Harrison out for a full workout before giving the players four days off for their bye week.

His absence, though, has been a big factor in the Steelers' 1-2 start. There's some improvement starting to show from Chris Carter and Jason Worilds, but with teams attacking the Steelers in the flats and short curls - right around where Harrison's physical presence is best utilized - quarterbacks should expect their game plans to include a heavy dose of their shorter throws.

It's worked well for both Broncos QB Peyton Manning and Raiders QB Carson Palmer, who have gone a combined 43-for-60 (71.6 percent) for 455 yards and five touchdowns. The Steelers are 0-2, facing both of these quarterbacks on the road and surrendering 65 points.
