Steelers linebacker James Harrison plays every snap in Steelers' win over Philadelphia

Rotation? James Harrison never heard the word Sunday.

A report surfaced the day before the Steelers' Week 5 win over Philadelphia that their outside linebackers James Harrison and LaMarr Woodley would rotate snaps with Chris Carter and Jason Worilds, respectively.

James Harrison played the entire game. So much for that.

We won't know what would have happened had Woodley not injured his hamstring during the game, leaving Worilds in for most of it (he had a sack in Woodley's absence). One thing is for sure, though. After a series or two to get warm, Harrison was the same player he has been during the outstanding stretches of his career.

His strength was an asset, helping seal an edge over a very good running team, and he was able to rush to the tackle's outside, appearing to be held as he worked to get around him.

No flag. Looks like all things are normal for Harrison and the Steelers' defense, a unit that allowed similar passing numbers in Week 3, but gave up more than twice as many points.

Harrison and the defense stepped up and made plays while getting stops throughout the game. Knowing that, it's highly unlikely we'll hear more about taking him off the field.
