Harrison is Digest Player of Week

Outside Linebacker

He was sidelined for four games after having surgery to repair his broken orbital bone, and he announced his return with a vengeance. James Harrison started for the first time since Oct. 2 in Houston, and he contributed eight tackles, three sacks, six pressures and a forced fumble that William Gay recovered.

Harrison is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.

Also considered were Larry Foote, who started at inside linebacker in place of the injured James Farrior and led the team with 10 tackles and added a pass defensed; Antonio Brown, who caught five passes for 109 yards (21.8 average), including one spectacular play to convert a third-and-17 on the Steelers' go-ahead touchdown drive in the fourth quarter; and Ben Roethlisberger, who became the first quarterback in franchise history to pass for 300 yards in three straight games and also made a great play on the 25-yard touchdown pass to Mike Wallace that gave the Steelers a 20-16 lead with 4:59 to play.
