Packers | Harrell sees back specialist

Tom Silverstein and Bob McGinn, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports Green Bay Packers DE Justin Harrell (back) saw a back specialist at Northwestern University recently and was assured he would not risk permanent damage if he attempts another comeback. Harrell is back to jogging and is working to rehabilitate the injury so that he can get back to where he was at the start of training camp. Harrell said, "He (the back specialist) was basically just reassuring me that I'm not doing any damage so down the road I won't be able to walk or will be in a wheelchair. That was my main concern. If my back is feeling like this right now, five, 10 years from now I don't want to be where I can't walk. Once I got that reassurance, it's pretty much trying to get back out there."
