Harrison Doesn’t Expect Suspension

By: Chris Gates

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) — Reports swirled over the weekend that the NFL is considering issuing a ban of Steelers linebacker James Harrison because of his hit on Browns quarterback Colt McCoy Thursday night.

Harrison, however, doesn’t expect to miss any time.

After Monday’s practice, Harrison said he doesn’t think the hit deserves a suspension.

“I don’t think it’s suspension-worthy,” Harrison said, according to the Steelers official website. “I don’t think it’s worthy of anything, but that’s just my own personal thoughts. They didn’t even call it helmet-to-helmet. He called it roughing the passer.”

The hit drew a 15-yard roughing the passer penalty.

Harrison was fined $125,000 last season for illegal hits, and many around the league expect a strict ruling on this most recent incident given his long history of violations. A ruling is expected to come either today or Wednesday.
