Pittsburgh (KDKA)- Prior to today’s Mike Tomlin press conference, all the talk was about Ben Roethlisberger’s foot injury. Following Tomlin’s presser, James Harrison is the center of attention.

Tomlin announced that Harrison would be sideline “a number of weeks” with a fractured right orbital eye socket.

The Pro-Bowl linebacker will undergo surgery tomorrow and no other information was given aside from that.

With Harrison sidelined, the Steelers will have to make changes to the starting lineup.

Tomlin announced that Lawrence Timmons will move to the outside to take Harrison’s spot and veteran Larry Foote will move inside.
