PITTSBURGH – The Pittsburgh Steelers spent a decade watching linebacker James Harrison wreak his own unique brand of havoc on an opponent's backfield.
Now the Steelers will get a chance to see how the other half lives.
Harrison signed with the Cincinnati Bengals in the offseason and will face his former team on Monday night. The five-time Pro Bowler says it is just another game on the schedule, but his old teammates know there will be more on the line.
Safety Troy Polamalu says the 35-year-old Harrison is "still a great player." The Bengals hope he can provide veteran leadership to a defense that is among the best in the league.
Harrison recorded one tackle in Cincinnati's opening loss to Chicago. He says he's still learning to fit in with the Bengals.
