Harrison back at practice for the Steelers

James Harrison was back with the Steelers today, one day after he was excused from practice after meeting with coach Mike Tomlin about the hits from Sunday that cost him $75,000.

Harrison’s agent said the three-time Pro Bowl player contemplated retirement, but from the sounds of it, the former NFL Defensive Player of the Year sounds like he’s ready to get back to work..

Tomlin said Harrison needed to “cool off” after getting hit Tuesday with the heavy fine for what was called an illegal hit on Browns receiver Mohamed Massaquoi Sunday at Heinz Field in the teams 28-10 win.

  1. I just figured out what is going on here.
    The NFL doesn’t care about these head shots, they are doing all of this to keep the Brett Favre affair off of ESPN.
    Notice how no big stories have been run about Favre’s meeting with NFL security?
    This is typical of scumby lawyer tactics, Goodell is a lawyer, right?
    It’s time to fire that slimeball before he ruins the NFL.
