well... Harrison's helmet did make contact with another player's helmet.. so yeah.. $50k is a fair amount i'd say.

I had a blowout fracture of my left eye orbit about 25 years ago. It sucked. The muscle was caught in the fracture and I couldn't move my eye at all until I had surgery. Thankfully I had a good surgeon and if you look at me now, you can't tell. My doctor was surprised though that I never got a black eye. She said that it is the first time she has ever seen a fracture like that without a black eye. Us Steelers fans are just tough like that!



I hope that James has a speedy recovery. We need him out there.

the hit on harrison is not a fineable offense or even a penalty. the guys in the trenches are not ball catchers or ball throwers and are not in a defenseless position. (kinda the same reason why you can pretty much get away hitting a running back anywhere unless he is catching the ball).

linemen (lb's, te's, blockers and rushers) make helmet to helmet contact on every single play.

anyways, so much for PFT's bogus speculation that the steelers were covering up a concussion to get him back out in the game. it was pretty obvious he had a cracked or severely injured orbital socket.

i heard local radio speculate its eyebrow/ forehead, but im saying it is on the side of the face in the upper cheek bone area (some of the thinest bone of the outer skull).

We will miss James but looking back into the 90's when Greg Lloyd tore his patellar tendon and missed a season, we moved Chad Brown from ILB to OLB and Chad promptly became a pro bowl OLB in fact he had something like 13 sacks. Chad wasn't near the player Timmons is (IMO) so this really could unleash a beast in Lawrence. I would have rather seen Sly in there at ILB but there must something we don't know in regards to him. Perhaps he isn't picking up the intricacies of the D.

Oh, you'll still see more of Sylvester out there because he is now the primary backup for both Farrior and Foote. We'll see what he has to offer now, good or bad.

Orbital bone fractures usually put hockey players out for a month,.

I say what the hell. Make the defense shuffle it's schemes for a change, no more guessing, just play your position.



Let him rest his back too.



We draft enough LB's every year, maybe somebody will step up - time to put the big boys pads on..maybe it will light a fire under some fat wallet players.
