    For others - like me - who are totally annoyed by the fact that no one has definitively mentioned WHAT THE SURGERY IS FOR it is...

    his elbow. Carry on.

    here comes the killjoy

    we're talking about a player who puts his health on the line (sometimes) judt sbout every game.
    he's also one of the better actors at WR i've seen for a long time.
    come opening day, i want his head. i waant to see him short-arm those passes across the middle. i'm waiting for one of those death-spiral pirouettes that the stinkin' refs fall for every dang time.
    but that arm must be pretty jacked up for all this cuttin' to be going on.
    hope he won't be walking around with some kind of bizarre device on that arm. 20 years from now.

    Am I the only one who thinks it's intentional, strategic, and probably even smart? We're talking about a very slightly built receiver -- at 6' 0" 175 he's quite a bit taller and lighter than Deion Branch. Yet he's managed to maintain a long, productive and healthy career. 10 years in the league with half a dozen missed games, tops.

    It's one thing when you need an extra yard for a critical first down, but on a lot of plays it probably pays for a guy like Harrison to avoid getting his skeleton rearranged.

    I agree completely with this. Intelligence and toughness can coexist. It is one thing to avoid getting hit by missing the catch, quite another to catch it and simply avoid the smashing hit, which is often difficult to set for. A receiver's value to a team is how often he catches the ball and avoids getting hit, not how often he gets smacked by the angry strong safety and leaves with a concussion.

    Marvin Harrison is a superb receiver, and he, like Branch, can simply not afford to take tremendous punishment all game long.
