Patriots lose safety Harrison for season

Sept. 26, 2005 at 10:15 PM

FOXBORO, Mass., Sept. 26 (UPI) -- New England Patriots safety Rodney Harrison is expected to miss the rest of the season after suffering a torn ACL in his left knee.

Harrison suffered the injury late in the opening period of Sunday's game, after Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Cedrick Wilson was taken down from behind and rolled on the All-Pro safety's leg.

Harrison underwent an MRI Monday that revealed the extent of the injury.

The NFL's all-time sack leader by a defensive back, Harrison, 32, was a key player during last season's win over Pittsburgh in the AFC Championship game as he returned an interception for an 87-yard touchdown.
