The NFL has suspended Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison one game for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy, according to a tweet from Adam Schefter of ESPN.com.

Harrison hit McCoy hard in the fourth quarter of Thursday’s 14-2 Steelers’ victory over the Browns. McCoy returned to the game following the hit but it was later revealed that the 25-year-old quarterback had suffered a concussion. There has since been speculation about whether he should have been allowed to return to the field. The NFL has made a concerted effort to clamp down on helmet-to-helmet hits this season.
