Eagles' Harris needs back surgery

WIP's Howard Eskin is reporting that Eagles right tackle Ryan Harris has a herniated disc in his back and will likely undergo season-ending surgery next week.

Harris signed a one-year, $785,000 contract with the Eagles on August 3 and had been penciled in to start at right tackle before his back flared up. You could sense something was up when Joe Banner talked up Winston Justice in a recent interview.

The oft-injured Harris, a 2007 third-round pick out of Notre Dame , play just 19 games over the past two seasons with ankle and toe injuries.

Until Justice (knee) is healthy, fourth-year tackle King Dunlap, who has started the last two preseason games, is the guy at right tackle.
