NFL denies Harrison's appeal of 1-game suspension
Steelers LB Harrison's appeal of 1-game suspension denied by NFL, will sit out game vs. 49ers
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' The NFL has denied James Harrison's appeal of a one-game suspension for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Cleveland quarterback Colt McCoy, and the Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker will sit out Monday night's game against San Francisco.

The ruling was made by NFL-NFLPA on-field appeals officer Ted Cottrell and announced Friday.

Harrison was suspended Tuesday because of the hit to McCoy during the Steelers' win over the Browns on Dec. 8. McCoy suffered a concussion.



The NFL cited Harrison's history of flagrant hits ' this was his fifth on a quarterback ' in making him the first player suspended under stricter guidelines for player safety that were invoked midway through last season.
