Steelers' Harrison won't apologize to Texans' Cushing
James Harrison's inflammatory comments in July to Men's Journal about any number of topics from his own quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell created quite the stir at the time.
It also caused Harrison to apologize to most of the people he criticized in the article, and the fallout from the story has mostly died down what with the regular season now in full swing. But as the Pittsburgh Steelers get ready to take on the Houston Texans, one aspect of Harrison's rip job has become a topic again this week.
In the Men's Journal story, Harrison took at shot at Texans linebacker Brian Cushing, saying he "is juiced out of his mind," referring to a four-game suspension Cushing served last year for violating the league's banned substance policy.
Cushing was not on Harrison's apology list when the Steelers star got around to making amends. And he's not going to be.
"I don't need to. ... It's not on my mind," he told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review after Wednesday's practice.
