Adam Schefter tweeted this today:
The NFL is considering suspending Steelers LB James Harrison one or two games for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Browns QB Colt McCoy.
There was some chatter earlier in the weekend that the NFL would determine that Colt McCoy had established himself as a runner and the helmet-to-helmet contact rule did not apply. I was expecting Roger Goodell to come down hard on Harrison, given the pair’s history.
Another interesting comparison is Ndamukong Suh, a repeat offender who was suspended for two games after stomping on an opponent. I don’t think anything that Harrison has done warrants the same same kind of punishment as purposely trying to injury an opponent after the whistle.
