Philadelphia Eagles RT Ryan Harris Done for the Year?

Howard Eskin reported on Twitter that he's been told that the Philadelphia Eagles' Ryan Harris has a "serious back problem" and that it is a herniated disc that will likely need surgery next week.

He also said to "forget Ryan Harris at RT."

If that's the case, it likely means he'll be out for quite a while if not the entire season. It will also be a major disappointment, since many saw Harris as the best option at right tackle.

Harris signed a one-year deal with the Eagles on August 2nd. It was somewhat of a surprise because most people thought he was going to re-sign with the Denver Broncos.

He impressed early-on in training camp and was inserted into the starting lineup almost immediately. However, he suffered what Andy Reid termed as "back spasms" after the first preseason game and hasn't practiced since.

In essence, Dunlap is now King at the right tackle position, but will Justice ever be served?

The Eagles need to hope that Winston Justice recovers to 100 percent pretty quickly, as most aren't comfortable that King Dunlap is the long-term answer. Having said that, Dunlap played well last night, albeit against a weak Browns defensive line.

Note to Michael Vick: Better sign that extension right now because you're going to be running for your life, this year!
