PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison has been credited with half a sack on his concussion-causing hit that sidelined Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Cribbs.

Harrison lowered his head and slammed his helmet into the left side of Cribbs' helmet as Cribbs fumbled while running a wildcat formation play during the second quarter of Pittsburgh's 28-10 victory Sunday. Cribbs did not return to the game.

After being reviewed, the NFL altered the play to give Cribbs no yardage rather than 1 yard rushing. Harrison and LaMarr Woodley were credited with half a sack each because Cribbs lined up as the quarterback.
