PITTSBURGH (KDKA)- James Harrison’s comments were the talk of the sporting world yesterday.

In a very predictable move, Harrison is starting to backtrack on those comments.

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that Harrison told Ben Roethlisberger that the writer of the Men’s Journal article “twisted” many of Harrison’s comments, and that Harrison did not intend to criticize Roethlisberger. Reportedly, Roethlisberger says that he’ll take Harrison at his word.

Harrison’s agent Bill Parise talked to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and told him, “A lot of it is bravado,” Parise said. “I think people have to be careful not to read that and think those statements are anything more than expressions of feelings, particularly in regard to the commissioner. The commissioner fined James $100,000 last year. What do you want him to say, he’s my best friend? James is a tough individual and that’s the type of language he uses.”

Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing had a short response to Harrison saying that he was “juiced out of his mind.”

Cushing told Fox26 in Houston that, “I’ll pray for him.”

Keep in mind, the Steelers visit the Texans on Oct. 2.

Since making these comments, Harrison has declined all interview requests.
