The Pittsburgh Steelers exited Sunday's game against the Houston Texans with injuries to several players: Ben Roethlisberger sprained his foot, Rashard Mendenhall left with a hamstring injury and Aaron Smith was carted off with a foot injury.
One player, James Harrison, left briefly with an eye injury, but later returned to the game. Based on the latest information, the injury is a little more serious: Harrison will be out several weeks, the Steelers said.
Head coach Mike Tomlin said at Tuesday's press conference that Harrison's eye injury will require surgery -- right orbital eye socket -- and will be out a "number of weeks."
The Steelers defense can still be great without Harrison but this is still a big blow for them. Harrison, former NFL defensive MVP, is one of the best linebackers in the game.
