Steelers LB Porter needs more knee surgery

PITTSBURGH (May 23, 2006) -- Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Joey Porter is expected to have arthroscopic knee surgery as early as May 24, less than a year after having loose cartilage removed from his left knee.

The Steelers did not say which knee requires surgery.

Porter took part in the Steelers' minicamp May 13-15, but has missed the voluntary coaching sessions held since then. The three-time Pro Bowl linebacker worked out on his own May 23 at the team's practice complex.

Porter missed most of training camp and the four preseason games last summer after needing knee surgery -- a problem aggravated when he jumped in the air to celebrate winning a training-camp blocking competition. He returned to play in the Super Bowl champions' 16 regular-season games and four playoff games.
