Colts WR Harrison to undergo elbow surgery

INDIANAPOLIS (May 21, 2006) -- Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison will have elbow surgery May 22.

The surgery, which will be performed in his hometown of Philadelphia, is for an injury sustained during the 2005 season.

Harrison, who caught 82 passes for 1,146 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2005, left the final minicamp workout early to catch a flight.

"(The surgery) was planned, but we just couldn't get a late flight to get back him back there in time," coach Tony Dungy said. "But he's doing fine and made it through four practices really well."

It will be Harrison's second surgery in recent months, after having treatment done on a wrist injury that he had sustained midway through last season.

Harrison isn't expected to be able to participate in Indianapolis' five-week voluntary organized team activity workouts, which are slated to begin May 23.
