While the Cleveland Browns continue to deal with the repercussions stemming from the concussion that quarterback Colt McCoy sustained last Thursday, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ James Harrison has problems of his own.
The linebacker is likely facing a suspension from the league on Tuesday, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Naturally, Harrison believes that he did nothing wrong and doesn’t believe that he should be fined or suspended. He cites the fact that McCoy was on the run and thus should be treated like any other player. Despite that, the NFL has pointed out the explanation in the rules that states that quarterbacks are still protected on helmet-to-helmet hits, even when they are on the run.
With that explanation, we can expect to see Harrison suspended or, at the very least, given a hefty fine.
