Colt McCoy Injury: James Harrison Believes Browns Should Be Punished

James Harrison is one of the most controversial figures in the NFL. His multiple suspensions for illegal hits have drawn the ire of many fans, but in response to his latest suspension that injured Browns quarterback Colt McCoy, Harrison believes the Browns should be punished as well. The Browns have struggled in their handling of McCoy's injury, specifically since he returned to the game in which he was injured. Harrison feels that should be reasoning for the league to punish the Browns:

Harrison said he understands that the hit was illegal but wondered why the Browns let McCoy return to the game so quickly despite the severity of the collision. The 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year says if he was suspended, the Browns should also face penalties from the league.

Harrison served a one game suspension this past Monday night for the hit that injured McCoy. McCoy has not played since the hit and is questionable for Saturday.
