What's up with Harris?

Tommie Harris isn't helping the Bears in his present condition, whatever that is. It's difficult to tell, since the Bears have a policy of shrouding even the tiniest injury in secrecy. Harris has rarely practiced at full speed since the season opener, and he has made little impact in any of the first three games. He says he's healthy enough to practice, but he's played like someone who either has a legitimate injury or is struggling to overcome the mental aspect of knee surgery. So why not shut him down for a week or two? Give his surgical left knee a chance to get well and maybe, when he returns, the Bears will have some semblance of the disruptive force who was voted to the past three Pro Bowls. If Harris is truly hurting, then he or the team should provide some information on the nature of the problem. By failing to address it, it leads to speculation that Harris has somehow lost his desire after hitting the jackpot with a $40 million, four-year contract extension. Some honest answers, please.
