Harrison, who endured a messy split with the Steelers last season, was asked about Bell’s situation Monday during an interview with FS1.
“For me, I’d give you everything at practice. You’d see — the cameras would see — that I’m fine, I’m healthy. But come Saturday, ‘Something ain’t right. I can’t play on Sunday.’ Because if I go out here and I mess something up, I’m losing a lot of money.”
James Harrison thinks Le'Veon Bell should come back in Week 10, go through practice and then fake an injury before the game.
If Bell thinks the city and his teammates hate him now ….

Bell has refused to sign his franchise tender of $14.5 million and has forfeited $2.6 million by missing Pittsburgh’s first three games this season.

This would be a great idea if he could actually pull it off. Now even if he wanted to, the cat’s out of the bag. Did James Harrison actually HURT Le’Veon Bell by publicly revealing this “plan”?
