Multiple NFL sources say Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison will likely receive a hefty fine but not be suspended.

This could always change -- these things are never set in stone -- but there are strong indications from a variety of sources that Harrison is due for a fine that could be extremely significant, I'm told. Considering Harrison's history it would not be shocking if the fine approached six figures.

Harrison's hit on Cleveland quarterback Colt McCoy was crown to crown, but McCoy lowering his head beforehand helps Harrison's case, I'm told. But with Harrison's history, and the fact he struck McCoy with crown of his helmet, will lead to a significant fine.

You need to look at the replay again. Bad call. Great hit.

How exactly does McCoy lower his head in that play? He lifted it to throw and then Harrison hit him. There was no lowering of the head; the replay shows that clearly. Wishful thinking doesn't bend reality.

Just a fine not a suspension? Is Godell getting soft? Harrison is a repeat offender who almost broke McCoy's neck. This just proves that the Steelers are political muscle. Mr Rooney the Ambassador to Ireland pulls the commissioners strings. It should have been a 3 game suspension for the rest of the regular season. This guy is going to kill somone with his dirty cheap shots.

I will look you up when I am in Phoenix...thanks!!

No you won't. You talk big but in reality that's all it is, talk. If you were Clint Eastwood in Every which way but loose for example, your ass would be in jail. Furthermore, if you were psychotic enough to show up to that guy's house, which I doubt is his real address; he would be well within the law to shoot your ass. Me, I'd let you hit me, and then take everything you own.

Grow up and join the real world meat head. Oh and by the way...I saw how you were patting your own back for being such an intellect. Anyone with you grasp of grammar likely didn't graduate from 10th grade, sorry to burst your tender ego.

You enjoy your Sunday John Rambo...lol

The NFL is becoming pussified quicker than the NHL.  Seriously, McCoy lowered his head which caused the crown to crown.  Shouldn't McCoy be fined for lowering his head? 

The last I checked this was a man's sport.  James Harrison plays football like it is supposed to be played.  Full of passion and aggression.  All of you ladies who are complaining about how he is too mean obviously have checked your testicles at the door.  Come on, man up.  Let the behemoth football players play the game like it has always been played.  Full speed, full contact, no excuses.

You got to love the people in here that will say things bad about me, but when I invite them to meet me any time any place, they cower behind their screens and won't back it up. No wonder football has become what it has is because pu$$ies rule the world now. I am not saying I would win in a fight but I sure as hell am not walking away and calling out names and staying behind the computer in the safety of my home. I am willing to back up my words, with actions... are you?

LOL, ys I did play football, but not anywhere near the level these guys play, Red... I am just asking the people that don't agree with me not to fight in here anymore and meet up with me so we can talk this out. It's ok that you don't agree with me, but when you call me out, then you better be able to back your words up. That's really all I ask. I am willing to step out from behind the screen. I just wish pu$$y talkers like you were willing to do the same. Now, seeing as I have your attention, name the time and place!! Carry on because you've been owned!!
