Harrison was not penalized on the play, but Titans coach Jeff Fisher questioned on Monday why the former All-Pro linebacker wasn't called for unnecessary roughness.

Harrison was chosen as the AFC defensive player of the week after having two sacks, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, a tackle for a loss and 11 tackles as the Steelers won 19-11.
