Packers CB Harris' injury was "very rare"

As noted in Thursday morning’s one-liners, injured cornerback Al Harris made a surprise appearance at Packers Organized Team Activities on Wednesday.
The visit can be called a “surprise” because Harris has stayed away from offseason workouts to this point while rehabbing a knee injury.  Since Harris went down in Week Eleven of last year, we’ve been under the impression that he’s been recovering from a run-of-the-mill torn ACL.
Until now.
It is a very rare injury,” revealed Harris’ physical therapist, Joe Caroccio.  “He had a torn anterior cruciate ligament, torn lateral collateral ligament, torn iliotibial band, fibular collateral ligament, and torn lateral hamstring.”
We’ve never heard of an iliotibial band or a fibular collateral ligament, but this sounds especially severe, particularly when the patient is entering his age-36 season.
“Guys don’t normally come back from injuries such as this,” Harris admitted.  “So … you read that and take it for exactly what it is.”
Harris recently began jogging, but admits there’s no timetable for his return.  He promised Wednesday that he isn’t ready to retire.  
Caroccio remains optimistic, probably in part because the Packers are paying him serious coin to make sure their two-time Pro Bowl corner returns.
“Will he be back?  Definitely,” said Caroccio.  “The training we put him through has been very intense.  Al’s level of intensity and persistence with the goals he set are very high, and they’re something he wants to achieve.”
Worth keeping in mind are coach Mike McCarthy’s comments on the injury in late April, before we knee the complexity of Harris’ surgery.  At the time, McCarthy termed it “a real serious injury” and hinted that two separate operations were performed on Harris’ knee.  McCarthy also compared Harris’ recovery timetable to Mark Tauscher’s in 2008.  Tauscher blew out his knee in early December and didn’t resume playing until the following November.
With Harris coming off a career-threatening injury at age 35, Charles Woodson going on 34, and Tramon Williams entering a contract year, we’re left wondering why Packers G.M. Ted Thompson didn’t invest more into the cornerback position this offseason.

    Hurts just trying to pronounce the words.

  2. Calistin says: Jun 3, 2010 12:45 PM

    Harris will be back. Count on it. Watch his videos.
    Woodson was DPOY.
    Tramon Williams is more than capable of starting.
    Investment in D-line will pay off w/ more pressure from LB’s, hence secondary will be ok.
    Now if Barnett and Hawk could just cover….

    Cuz’ Thompson sucks! Duh!
    If the Packers get any further this year (Which they wont), then will people realize that Thompsons got to go? How many (years) chances do you guys have to give this guy? Seriously! Give me a time table that your willing to give this guy?! Packers need a Superbowl not to just be satisfied with mediocrity!

  8. FinFan says: Jun 3, 2010 12:55 PM

    you torn a acl in your testical? thats the only rare thing I heard of.

  9. steve says: Jun 3, 2010 12:56 PM

    Thompson didn’t draft or sign a FA CB this off-season because (1) Woodson is at the top of his game; (2) They won’t be losing Tramon Williams; (3) Pat Lee was a #2 pick just a couple of years ago; (4) Brandon Underwood was a rookie last year, looking good this year; (5) Thompson doesn’t draft for need, so no CB was worth it when/where he was picking; (6) No good CB’s available in free agency this year.

  10. realitypolice says: Jun 3, 2010 12:58 PM

    If McCarthy said back in April that Harris had “a real serious injury” and hinted that two separate operations were needed, why were you under the impression that he was recovering from a run of the mill ACL injury?
    For a website that specializes in reading between lines that often aren’t there, I think there was more than enough in McCarthy’s statements for you to have assumed it was more serious than that two months ago.

  11. Bun McSticky says: Jun 3, 2010 12:59 PM

    The guy is 36 and he’s all done. He’ll give it a great effort, I’m sure….but he’s done. He either knows it and isn’t ready to admit it yet or he’s like many athletes that don’t know when to say when.
    I’m a Viking fan, but I don’t wish the guy any ill will. Its just doing the math, is all.

    If you cando a better job then Steady Teddy Thompson then go ahead and mail your resume to the address above. Surely a more lucrative gig then freelance writer. Thompson has the issue addressed. They have guys in camp right now playing corner. Young guys that are making play after play. But you wouldn’t know that because your research and in depth knowledge of the Green Bay Packers is at the surface.

  13. Love_Boat_Scandal says: Jun 3, 2010 1:02 PM

    If anyone can come back, it’s Al. TT will sign Tramon to an extension after the season starts, and they like the progress that Underwood and Lee have made thus far. Who exactly were they suppose to sign or pick?

  14. Ruvell100 says: Jun 3, 2010 1:07 PM

    Woodson, Tramon, Pat Lee (healthy and looking good), Brandon Underwood (good young player who has impressed thus far), Josh Bell has performed well at times and was a starter in Denver. I think a lot of people think it’s Madden, where you can create an All-Pro at every position.
    myasylum is Bonita Favre, by the way.

    Yes!
    That is by far the most sensible thing I have ever read on this site. It is heartwarming to see that the true Packer fans (the ones who put the success of the team above their lust for Ted) still exist.
    Not only that, you ask some very relevant questions. How long should it take for people to realize the glaringly obvious?
    Ted has had five years to build a quality team. He has failed miserably, no one can deny that. The definition of insanity is trying the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result.
    So I rephrase your question, not that I expect any of the Ted fans here to give a clear answer. How long do you intend to try the same thing? How many years would you like to sit idly by and watch the team you claim to love be run into the ground and made a laughingstock? How long does it take the blind to see the truth?

  18. tufar says: Jun 3, 2010 1:30 PM

    Emoney, I’m a Vikings fan and I remember thinking at the time that he had suffered from a very serious injury and at his age it could be career ending. However to hear that he seems to be coming back from that injury is testament to his toughness and I for one wish him the best in recovery. I would like to add however that were this a Vikings injury two of your most annoying Pack fan cohorts Jimmy Smith and Bob Nelson would have been uglying up the blog waves with their vehemence…I’m just saying…

  19. seals says: Jun 3, 2010 1:32 PM

    Emoney- wake the f up and read the idiot packer fans on Vike threads.
    As for Harris, It doesn’t sound very good to me. Maybe Clay can get him something to help him heal faster.

    I’d be wondering too if I hadn’t done any more research than the apparent muckracking at PFT.
    You don’t even add a point you could that on top of the age/ injury/unsigned tender condtions, the Packers MOVED a CB to Safety in Blackmon.
    Reminds me daily that this is no journalistic endeavor, just a rumor mongering site that affords a few a bully pulpit. Sort of a combined headline news and National Enquirer for pro football….. But not that there’s anything wrong with that….

  22. joshington says: Jun 3, 2010 1:37 PM

    IS there any real reason to go any farther than the surface when dealing with the Green Bay Packers?

  23. MrHumble says: Jun 3, 2010 1:46 PM

    TT doesn’t believe in the word “invest”….like paying money to free agents etc. As porous as the GB db’s played last year, I suspect this year may be even worse. Harris and Woodson have been able to cash in on their past skills/achievements to get away with holding wr’s on pretty much every passing play and with Harris out now, I doubt we will see their young db’s get that consideration. Coaches from every team they played last year complained about Harris and Woodson’s holding and I suspect Woodson will we watched much closer.

  24. EasyDrinkingBuschLight says: Jun 3, 2010 1:46 PM

    Fibular collateral ligament is just another name for the lateral collateral ligament, or LCL. It’s just the ligament along the outside side of the knee.

  25. robert ethen says: Jun 3, 2010 1:50 PM

    The injury may be “rare”, but Al is “well done”. Like dinner or burnt toast.

  26. MrHumble says: Jun 3, 2010 2:07 PM

    Kudo’s to Harris for his rehab but there is absolutely no way he is coming back from an injury of that type…combined with his age…to be anywhere near effective. Fans (especially GB fans) will remain blind to the fact that both Harris and Woodson had to hold wr’s on pretty much every play last year in order to defend them. Watch the tapes my friends, watch the tapes….then watch the tape of the packer/cardinal playoff game and you will see exactly what i am talking about becuz the cards ran countless slants and posts…nothing long to give them the chance to be held by harris and woodson. the cards prepared for that game extremely well, even though they don’t have a defense worth a grain of salt. I know packer fans will be upset and point to woodson’s stats from last year, which is relevant, but then watch HOW he achieved those stats…..by holding. Hey, the guy is 36 and human nature says he can’t run with the young bucks anymore so you do what you have to do….illegal blocks and holding. I guarantee you he will be called more for it this year as coaches from every team the packers played last year have complained about it.

  27. Franchise says: Jun 3, 2010 2:10 PM

    As a Viking fan, I do hope he comes back. He has historically gotten burned in mathups vs the Vikings, and is showing the tread is definately worn.
    Please heal up Al, I’d rather see you on the field than the upstarts on the bench.

  28. Bob Nelson says: Jun 3, 2010 2:27 PM

    Again, the Green Bay Packers demonstrating that they are the most open, up front, and honest franchise in the NFL.

  29. IAVikefan says: Jun 3, 2010 2:43 PM

    @ emoney- why would Viking fans need to bash the Packers in a packers thread? We went to overtime in the NFC championship game, and swept the Packers last year. Do you really think any of us really cares that much whether or not Al Harris comes back? I wish the guy well, and speedy recovery, and good luck… but aside from that, us Viking fans have no interest in this.

  30. karpsta says: Jun 3, 2010 2:47 PM

    Harris was a step slow a year ago with healthy legs. If he couldn’t beat up the WR off the line, he was getting beat. He’s almost better off playing Safety at this point in his career coming off of this injury. I think Woodson belongs at the FS spot as well. He was most effective when he was roaming the field and making plays, ala Butler from the 90′s.
    It’s a good thing the Packers really focused on improving their secondary this offseason. What with the players they have being either really old, and/or always injured.

  31. Sterling says: Jun 3, 2010 3:16 PM

    Yeah, Al will be back … like a much younger Javon Walker came back from a similar devastating knee injury. NOT.

  32. dave says: Jun 3, 2010 3:23 PM

    Myasylum and BCS – I assume you want a return to the “good old days” when the Pack went to the Super Bowl every year. Except that never happened, unless you want to go back to the early and mid ’60′s, and even then there wasn’t a SB until the last couple of years. Good ol’ Bert got us there – what? – twice in fourteen years or so? And we won one. ONE! Now that may look like the Himalayan Mountains to a Viking fan, but Ron Wolf wasn’t all that impressed with it as I recall. Of course you were probably screaming for Wolf to be fired in the mid ’90′s too, because he couldn’t get the team past the Cowboys. Thompson has “failed miserably” to build a quality team? As one of the youngest teams in the league they finish one game behind the Vikes, make the playoffs, and are therefore a “laughingstock?” One of the keys to a happy and productive life is learning to not waste time arguing with those who are reality-challenged, so I’m done now. Have fun in your strange little worlds; I’ll be rooting for the Pack here on planet Earth.

    Excuse me what? Al Harris and woodson were holding in the playoff game? Harris was gone by then, and woodson was being run over by fitz on blatant offensive interference plays. Woodson is not 36, and your claims to him holding every play are completely false. You say “watch the tape” well I think you need to do that yourself.

    Actually, the lateral collateral ligament is functionally more of a lateral collateral ligament complex comprised of the Iliotibial band, fibular collateral ligament, and the tendon of the biceps femoris.
    These three structures stabilize the lateral aspect of the knee.

    You’re right, Wolf was hired in 1991. He was hired on Nov. 27, 1991, 12 games into the 1991 season. He didn’t start making personnel moves until after the 1991 season.
    This is why, when you stop and do the math of his 92-52 record, the 4-12 season of 1991 isn’t included in there. His first season as active GM was 1992, which would make the Super Bowl winning 1996 season his 5th year, not his 6th. Perhaps you should take your own advice and look it up.

  59. sand0 says: Jun 4, 2010 1:16 PM

    Emoney,
    Posting idiotic crap in other people’s threads is more of a Packer fan thing but good try.
    Packers secondary will no longer be the strength of their defense. I think it will be fairly weak this season looking at who they have and their ages. If the Packers defense is going to be any good this season I’d think they have to overachieve in other areas to make up for the secondary regressing.
    Linebackers and linemen essentially have to get to the QB quicker, hold down the run without safety help, etc. I don’t think they can just put both corners on islands and focus on everything else. It will be different.
    As a Vikings fan I have to say I’m licking my chops just a little bit. Their team was unable to contain the Vikes passing attack last season with Harris in so I like our chances better with him out.

    ____________________________________
    As a Pack fan, I have to say I do too. Harris has seldom been anything but a liability in coverage.
    He made a name for himself starting opposite Ahmad Carroll, who could make a lot of high school corners look like All-Pros. As soon as Woodson showed up, Harris did nothing but put the Giants in the Super Bowl.
    Now he’s in his mid-30′s and coming off a major injury? For some reason, I don’t see that as a recipe for improvement. T Williams was adequate last year. Harris should just hang it up before he lands in a wheelchair.

    Yes I have, up until spring broke. Then I became very busy. And unlike you, I’m not pathetic enough to create an alter ego on a football blog comment board. I only post as Majik.
    By the looks of the lack of intelligence of Green n’ Gold, I’d say we’ve found one of your alter egos.
    And Ruvell, it’s funny how you have to twist some of the things I’ve said in order to attempt to insult me, and all I have to do is glance over at that 1995 Lombardi trophy that you claim G B won.

    Beer Cheese Soup,
    I couldn’t have said it any better myself. I’m glad someone besides me knows how over rated Al Harris is and always has been. He’s been burned in coverage so many times throughout his career, not just by great receivers, but below average receivers as well.
    I don’t wish injury on anyone, but this is a blessing in disguise. It was a happy day when Al was replaced last year by Williams. Please just retire.
    And Viking fans,
    If my comment bothers you so much, then GET OFF THE PACKER POST! You complain about certain packer fans on here invading your posts, but you’re no better with your idiotic comments. You like your vikings, well then stick with reading your viking stories.
    And how many times do you have to keep reliving your two wins against the packers and your one play away from the super bowl? How pathetic do you sound right now? It was one year of kicking our ass. Things can change quickly from year to year. Its usually back and forth every year with the two teams. When the packers sweep you, we don’t brag like we’ve been dominating you for the past ten years. What will you have to say if the packers sweep you this upcoming year? Oh that’s right, you’ll have excuses like you always do. The ref’s screwed you over, blah blah blah. You say packer fans are bad, but viking fans are more in denial than any fans throughout the country.
    And Sand0,
    Don’t get so ahead of yourself. Your former #1 ranked run defense is old and not what they used to be, now that they can’t use their roids anymore. Your #1 linebacker is coming off a major leg injury. Your #1 CB is a shell of himself. Your Safeties absolutely suck. Tell me again how the Packers offense won’t be able to shred your defense just as easily as the Vikings offense did to our defense last year?
