The Justin Harrell Setback

I'm kicking myself now because I was not more cynical last week when I wrote about the miracle acupuncture that cured the chronic back pain of DT Justin Harrell. He is not fine, and instead he's suffered a setback. From Greg Bedard:

Coach Mike McCarthy said defensive tackle Justin Harrell missed Tuesday's morning practice with back spasms that are related to his chronic back problems.

At best, he's a backup at both defensive end positions, so his continued absence isn't a problem. I'm not rooting against the guy, but until I see him lined up on the field, I'm expecting nothing from him.
