Steelers linebacker James Harrison has the ability to obtain an expedited appeal of his one-game suspension, if he so chooses.
He may not so choose.
“Thank you to all my fans and supporters, I’m just going to move on from here and get ready for my next game,” Harrison said on Twitter after the suspension was announced. It was his second reaction after “Lol!!!”
That seems to mean Harrison won’t appeal his suspension. Then again, coach Mike Tomlin seemed to suggest on Tuesday that Harrison will appeal.
“We have to prepare as if he is not going to play, of course,” Tomlin said. “We will move forward, James will move forward.”
We’ll likely find out soon whether Harrison will move forward with an expedited appeal of the suspension.
