After Googling "James Harrison knee surgery" (we now take it for granted but the internet is amazing) it appears Harriosn may get scoped

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison may need arthroscopic surgery on his knee before the regular season opens, according to Mike Bires of the Beaver County Times. Harrison is currently on the preseason PUP list because of swelling behind his knee cap. An arthroscopic procedure may be required to clean out the irritation that is causing the swelling.

Regardless of whether surgery is needed, the Steelers feel he will be ready for their season opener next month. Bires spoke with Harrison's agent, Bill Parise, who indicated the Steelers may take him off the PUP list in the next couple weeks and if things don't go smoothly in practice, they'll opt for the scope. Parise also stated Harrison is perhaps the healthiest he's been in three years, and he's confident his client will be ready for the opener, via Bires:


"He's OK. We're just trying to make sure that we have the player we want for the regular season," Parise said. "Right now, James is doing all right. He's just working through the process. If you see him, he's probably as fit as he's ever been. He looks great. His attitude is great. Right now, it's just a matter of him getting that knee better.

At this time, James is looking to play in the opener. We all think James will play in the opener."

Note that old guys Bouchette and Dulac from the P-G have nothing on this yet - Kaboly is much more twitter savvy in breaking stories

Article on steelersdepot.com says he may just need a scope which isn't a huge deal but if he needs it done I say get it done asap so he doesn't miss regular season games. Preseason is meaningless for guys like him. Otherwise he will just end up getting hurt and missing games again and we saw how that turned out last year

I honestly think he should just get his knee cleaned out, but it doesn't sound like that's the plan. It would probably be better in the long run to get it cleaned rather than try to play through it, possibly making it worse. Chances are he'll need a couple games to get his feet underneath him like last year regardless of what happens.

urlacher is getting the same thing done now. they now call a scope a "debridement" as if theyre just going to the dentist for some under the gum cleanings.

it is still surgery no matter how you church it up.

the coaches probably want it done now, james probably wants to tough it out. with any other player this would be an easy decision, but even cowher admitted being slightly on edge and afraid when harrison walked in to see him.

Calm down....step away from the panic button folks.

Google a term "arthroscopic meniscotomy" and chill out. If he has a loose flap of meniscus in his knee that is causing irritation, they clip it and remove the piece. Its not that big a deal.

If you still need more info then you can look into whether the meniscus tear is in the white zone or the red zone (vascularized area), but at this point its like a haircut for an ortho surgeon.

It's nothing major but it's still a 2-3 week recovery.

Had a similar thing done on my ankle and it was about that long before the doc let me do to much on it.

That's some good cinema.

Harrison may have a hangnail like piece of tissue in his knee that needs to get clipped out.

Yep - surgery is never risk-free but Bouchette wonders why this was not done before camp

James Harrison has had a knee problem since at least the spring, he continues on PUP because of it and now his agent says he may need surgery?

Why didn’t they do this back in May or June?...

Parise said he may come off PUP first and play so they can determine if it still is causing him problems. I don’t need to tell you that I am no doctor, but common sense tells me that playing football won’t serve as a painkiller for Harrison’s knee. If it hasn’t improved in months, then they probably should think about going in there and getting it done now, three weeks before the first real game.
