Does anyone have the details on why James Harrison isn't getting playing time?

Have I missed something on the internet explaining or talking about this?

I saw he tweeted social media where he was sitting on his helmet and cracked a joke making a reference about getting prepped for game time reps or something but when he didn't play at all in the Ravens game it got me thinking.



I asked this question 10 weeks ago before the first Ravens game. We still don't have an answer. if he is not active this week I am afraid father time has caught up to him and he is merely just another strength coach on the team masquerading as a player.

I saw a video of him lifting (on FB I think) shirtless, and said several times “they got this sitting on the sideline.” Seems like he’d need a few snaps these last cpl weeks before they “unleash” him in a he playoffs. I don’t know, seems like with Shazier and dirty red both out you’d have to think #92 May see the field Sunday night. Or, maybe not at all. (<<I can’t and don’t want to believe that)

Well, 4 weeks left (and the last one shouldn't matter)....then 3 playoff games....Damn near half a season, so the time for "saving" is over and he needs to get in playing shape. Would explain why he wasn't dressing early in the year when TJ was out.

It's simply possible that TJ performed much better and fast than expected. I don't know if there's been any experimentation with Harrison on the other side, but you figure if Harrison took 12-15 snaps for TJ then they both can go absolutely full tilt on every play.

The Steelers don't intend to use Harrison unless they have to. This is effectively Chickillo's first year seeing major time on the field, and of course, Watt being a rookie who is playing well can only get better with more snaps. I don't buy for a moment that Father Time has rendered him useless. Spots on the 53 man roster are too valuable. Harrison's weakness is coverage. He can still play the run better than any OLB on the roster. He scan still rush the QB better. The Steelers simply want their young players to emerge because at Harrison's age, they know they can depend on him for only a limited time. Harrison would have been a better match up than Watt for some of the run heavy teams the Steelers have played recently. The fact is that Jarvis Jones lost games for the Steelers. Watt hasn't. He hasn't been perfect, but he hasn't been the sole reason the Steelers under performed or lost.

I hope to see #92 play before this run is over. He's my favorite Steeler of all time - and I am a rabid Franco, Stallworth, Lipps, Lloyd fan.

Harrison not dressing has nothing to do with Watt He’s competing with Chickillo & Moats, both of whom play STs. Personally, I’d love to have him in stunt rusher role but they are more worried about STs.

so has there been a mention of unleashing the beast Harrison now by the coaching staff or press? why is he taking a roster spot if he cant or is not allowed to play? very strange situation with Harrison..cant imagine him not being a spark plug on defense and big on run stopping. which the steelers need badly.

Ask Alex Smith and the Chiefs about father time. He won that game for us down the stretch and that was only a few months ago. I am not buying this. They are the most stubborn organization in the NFL.

Wonder if they are just being nice to James
Maybe his body isn't up to a full season
One last year paycheck
And playnhum here and there strategically
I know he works out like crazy but doesn't mean there isn't no som thing wrong that repeated hitting wouldn't hurt ?

With so many injuries to the LBs, I think this week forces the Steelers to use James. I hope he plays well, but i am afraid he will be a shadow of his former great self.

Yeah-- he was 3rd in the NFL last year in pressures per rush. I don't think he's completely washed up.

Hopefully Harrison is not forced into coverage by design too much. I want to see Deebo annihilate the blocking and nail the QB into the ground like a tent stake.

James Harrison told @Michele_Tafoya he wouldn't have signed with the Steelers this offseason if he had realized how little playing time he was going to get

I think it's safe to say we're all disappointed in this as well.
