I've just been informed that Mike Tomlin met with James Harrison this morning and that the two had a "very productive" meeting.
Tomlin then excused Harrison from practice today.
Harrison, of course, has gone on numerous sports talk shows and expressed his frustration at the $75,000 fine levied against him for a hit on Cleveland's Mohamed Massaquoi last Sunday.
He's even gone as far as saying he's contemplating retirement if he feels he's unable to play under the current rules - which he has 20 million guaranteed reasons not to do.
Tomlin is likely allowing Harrison - who sometimes does not practice on Wednesdays anyway - a little cooling off period.
© On a side note, the play on which Josh Cribbs suffered a head injury has now been changed to a sack, with Harrison and LaMarr Woodley each getting credit for a half-sack.
Cribbs originally dropped back to pass before scrambling out of the pocket.
