Packers cornerback Al Harris is a man who, as best we know, does not have the initials of other men tattooed into his leg. But Harris, who left last night’s game in the first quarter, found blood in his urine and might have a ruptured spleen. From The National Football Post, which, sadly, does not feature any Norman Rockwell art of any kind:
National Football Post Writer Michael Lombardi has learned first hand that Green Bay Packers cornerback Al Harris may have a ruptured spleen, which would sideline him for the rest of the season, pending a second opinion. Harris sustained the injury in last night’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
I have to give Simms a nod here for bursting his spleen before it came the cool thing to do. So many guys in the league now are just imitators. When you can detonate an organ in your body before it becomes popular, you’ve made it, my friend.
