Steelers Harrison out with fractured orbital bone


And you thought the Jets had it bad?

The Pittsburgh Steelers, eerily similar to the New York Jets this season at 2-2, will be without its defensive leader, James Harrison, who fractured his right orbital bone during the teams loss Sunday to the Houston Texans.

Harrison will undergo surgery Wednesday. He suffered the injury when he took a helmet-to-helmet hit.

Starting all but one game for Pittsburgh since 2007, Harrison has 36.5 sacks over the past three seasons.
