Harrison won’t apologize to Cushing

Don’t look for James Harrison to seek out Brian Cushing anytime during Sunday’s game and explain his comments in a July article of Men’s Journal Magazine where he said that the Texans’ linebacker “is juiced out of his mind.”

According to Harrison, it’s not going to happen.

“I don’t need to,” Harrison said after practice on Wednesday.

Harrison ripped teammates Ben Roethlisberger and Rashard Mendenhall along with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and others in the controversial article.
Harrison since apologized to Roethlisberger, Mendenhall and Goodell, but apparently won’t do the same with Cushing when the Steelers and Texans meet at Reliant Stadium on Sunday.

“It’s not on my mind,” Harrison said.

Cushing was suspended last year for the first four games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. He tested positive for a substance that can be used to mask steroid use.

Cushing later responded to Harrison’s comments by only saying “I’ll pray for him.”
