It again is an indication of how a NFL career can end in an instant and how players cannot protect themselves by playing to avoid injury -Harrison was hurt on a garbage play where his head went into one of his own players - so glad he appears OK

None of the other people that I was watching the game with noticed it.

I was at the game yesterday.....I can tell you it was TERRIFING watching them huddle over him for that long. It seemed like forever..... I suspected he was either knocked out or had a neck injury when I saw them have him move first one leg then the other. Scary stuff watching them take him out flat on the cart. I'm so happy he's going to be fine. We just got home from Pittsburgh 15 minutes ago and the first thing I did was come here for news on James!

Nods I agree, Was like wow. the thing is Harrison Showed that Anything can Happen on Any play. I almost felt like he let his guard down it beeing the last play of the half. Just so happy he is ok. PLAYERS NEED to be so damn Cautious its almost scary. Just happy to see him walking and able to still play this game.

Glad to see that he is OK, just a stiff neck is the latest report. In other Silverback news, I was searching for more info on the man-beast himself and found a funny tidbit about him at Wikipedia.org

"Harrison once stated in a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review interview that he trusted no one. Not his teamates, not his coaches, not his family, not even his own mother"

That is funny, albeit a little disturbing, but funny nonetheless.

Harrison is a very tough dude!

I read an interview with Clark Haggans who said the trainers hid Harrison's helmet so he couldn't sneak back into the game. He comes ready to play!

It's also reassuring to know that Woodley can come in and play at a high level.

Harrison's stiff neck limits practice, will play Sunday
By Scott Brown
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Tuesday, September 18, 2007

James Harrison has a stiff neck that may limit him in practice Wednesday but won't keep the outside linebacker out of Sunday's 1 p.m. game against the visiting San Francisco 49ers.

"He's got a clean bill of health," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said today at his weekly news conference.

Harrison hurt his neck near the end of the first half of last Sunday's game and was strapped to a headboard and carted off the turf at Heinz Field. He returned to the Steelers' sideline for the start of the second half, and Tomlin confirmed today that the extreme measures medical personnel took in treating Harrison were precautionary.

Harrison, who took over for Joey Porter this season at right outside linebacker, leads the Steelers with one-and-a-half sacks.

"I'm glad that he is fine," Tomlin said, "personally and professionally."

Rookie tight end Matt Spaeth is nursing a thigh bruise and it could limit what he does in practice, Tomlin said.

The Steelers, Tomlin added, are otherwise a healthy team.

From Monday's Post-Gazette, this stood out to me:

Quote:
...Harrison, still in uniform after undergoing all the precautionary tests, walked back to the Steelers' sideline early in the third quarter and pleaded with the medical staff to go back in the game. They basically laughed at him and sent him back to the locker room. When last seen, he was trudging off angrily, ripping the tape off his hands.

"You have to understand something about James," fellow linebacker Larry Foote said after the game. "He's nuts. He's definitely a little off."
Personality-wise, it looks like James Harrison is taking up where Lambert and Mean Joe left off.
