Steelers James Harrison Says Browns Should Also Be Punished

James Harrison has served his fair share of suspensions in the NFL, his most recent after his helmet to helmet hit on Browns QB Colt McCoy.  He is now questioning why the Browns haven’t been punished for allowing Colt McCoy to come back into the game so soon after the hit.

Linebacker James Harrison isn’t questioning his one game suspension by the NFL, but he questioning why they aren’t also punishing the Cleveland Browns for not taking proper measures for Colt McCoy who displayed concussion symptoms the next day, but was allowed to continue to play after the hit.

If he was hurt so bad I don’t know why they let him back in two plays later. Something should be done to them, I would think. I don’t know. I got a game, what should they get?

The Browns had stated earlier this week that they had left McCoy in because he wasn’t displaying the concussion symptoms during the game, but most of that was because they don’t have concussion experts on the field.  That has now changed and the NFL will have those medical experts ready to go to evaluate players as the injuries happen.

As far as the punishment goes, chances are that won’t be happening.  Sorry James.
