Harris Says He Had Arthroscopic Knee Surgery in the Offseason

The Chicago Tribune reports that Tommie Harris has reveled that he had knee surgery five months ago:

Bears defensive tackle Tommie Harris took in another practice with helmet in hand Monday, but perhaps it shouldn’t come as a surprise. Harris revealed he had arthroscopic knee surgery five months ago. Harris said the surgery was to remove scar tissue and examine the joint. He went on to say that he sat out Monday’s practice due to a sore hamstring, although coach Lovie Smith attributed Harris’ absence to knee soreness. “This is just rest,” Harris said. “I had surgery [in] March, so I didn’t get a chance to do a lot of the staff that the teammates were doing. So they’re far ahead of me. I’m really just starting to catch up.”
