Under the category: He has a point

James Harrison was recently suspended one game for his hit on Colt McCoy. Reading this article it seems like Harrison is very slowly learning what the league does and does not want in the NFL. In that article Harrison did make one point that got me thinking.

If his actions hurt McCoy that badly, why was the QB allowed to return to the game. In a league that pretends to care about concussions and player injuries, why is Cleveland not facing some sort of penalty in this instance?

I understand the NFL will be hiring a Certified trainer that will be responsible for guiding the team doctors on how to deal with players that have concussion symptoms. A good move that should have been made a long time ago but it does not address what the Browns did. They clearly ignored a league initiative and risked the long term health of a player. How is that really any different than what Harrison did?

In fact, one could argue that harrison's hit was a bad split second decision while the doctors responsible for his health had far more time to make the right decision and ultimately failed to do so.
