Pittsburgh Steelers/NFL(NEW YORK) — The one-game suspension for Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison has been upheld by the NFL.

Harrison was penalized for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy last Thursday.  Harrison, who has been punished five times by the league for illegal hits, is the first player to be suspended for a helmet-to-helmet hit.

Harrison will miss Monday night’s game against the San Francisco 49ers.
