Steelers linebacker James Harrison will be talked about yet again this week after being flagged for roughing the passer and hitting the crown of his helmet against Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick on Sunday. The animated gif and slow motion video is below so you can see for yourself.
Harrison has already fined a total of $100,000 so far this season for what the league deemed illegal hits The latest hit on Sunday could draw even more scrutiny from the NFL and perhaps a another fine and even suspension. “It\’s not going to change the way I play,” Harrison said, via the AP. “There was nothing wrong about the play.” Harrison has consistently insisted that he plays within the rules.
Harrison was not fined last week on a similar hit on Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell.
