The 37-year-old will miss his first game of the season, but with the Steelers slated for a bye next week, Harrison will have plenty of time to recuperate for the next matchup against the Seahawks in Week 12.

    Steelers LB James Harrison ready to produce in limited role

    Steelers linebacker James Harrison came out of retirement last year and played surprisingly well, and this year, he'll be part of a young linebacker corps eager to prove itself. Harrison will step into a reduced role, but he's still ready to make an impact, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Harrison had 5 1/2 sacks last season and at 37, he isn't getting younger, so the Steelers are planning to keep him limited to 15-20 plays per game. But don't expect Harrison to ease into retirement. "Nobody wants to be in a backup role," Harrison said. "If that's your mentality, then you're not in the right sport. Everybody wants to start, but we all have roles to play. I think I can play more than 25 snaps a game when I'm 50."

    Steelers' James Harrison on retirement: 'You can't play forever'

    With Steelers linebacker James Harrison about to enter his 13th NFL season, Harrison knows his time in the league may be ending soon, reports the team's official website. "It's a young man's game," he said. "You can't play it forever. You have to be grateful for the time that you get and move on from there." Harrison briefly retired after the 2013 season before returning to play in 2014. He said he has come to realize that change is a constant in the NFL. "Each year is a new era because you have a new set of guys," Harrison said. "No defense comes in with the same group of guys year in and year out from every position. I think each year is a new group, new era."

    Steelers linebacker James Harrison to see less snaps in 2015

    Steelers veteran linebacker James Harrison is expected to see less snaps in 2015, according to linebackers coach Joey Porter per the Pittsburgh Tribune. "He knows where he is," Porter said shortly after the Steelers drafted Miami (Fla.) outside linebacker Anthony Chickillo on the final day of the NFL Draft. "I told him already, the James Harrison (of before) is over. "He's going to play his role, and his role is going to be effective. He knows what we're asking out of him, and he's going to be ready to answer the bell." Porter said he expects Harrison to play roughly 25 snaps per game next season. Pittsburgh took another outside linebacker in Bud Dupree from Kentucky in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday. "You can never have enough pass rushers in the way the game is being played now from the outside linebacker position," Porter said. "We just made our outside linebacker tree a little deeper."

    Linebacker James Harrison plans on playing in the NFL in 2015, but he is still deciding which team he'd like to play for this upcoming season. Harrison took to Instagram to explain the situation of choosing between the Steelers and Titans. "The opinions of my support team are split, but for me, my love for the man who both started, and made my career what it is, is undeniable," Harrison wrote in Instragram.

I also have a great amount of love for Steelers Nation & the Steelers organization. I'm going to pray on this and let God guide me in the right direction." LeBeau, former defensive coordinator of the Steelers, has joined the Titans as the team's assistant head coach/defense. Harrison, a five-time Pro Bowler, has recorded 692 total tackles, 71.5 sacks, 19 passes defensed, six interceptions and 29 forced fumbles over his 11-year career.
