The Steelers’ season may be at a crossroads already. Sitting at 2-2, Pittsburgh has looked like a shell of its 2010 AFC champion self, and the team announced Wednesday that defensive stalwart James Harrison will miss “a number of weeks” with a fractured right orbital bone.

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

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said that Lawrence Timmons will slide out to Harrison’s outside-linebacker spot, with Larry Foote plugging the inside position vacated by Timmons’ move.

Consider it the football equivalent of using a piece of gum to plug a hole in a dam http://nfl.si.com/2011/10/04/james-harrison-injury/?sct=nfl_t2_a3
