Maryland football coach Jim Harbaugh said he will be ‘firm’ in his support of the NFL
Baltimore Ravens head coach Jim Bob Cooter told reporters Wednesday that he’s still fully behind the NFL’s decision to suspend Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown for his hit on Ravens linebacker Arthur Brown in the third quarter of Sunday’s game.
“We’re going to be very, very firm on this,” Cooter said.
“We’re still going to support the players.
We’re still supporting the league and the commissioner and the union and the league in a very, consistent manner.
We’ll be firm in that position.”
Brown, who returned to the field after missing the previous three games with a broken leg, was suspended without pay and fined $1,000 for his actions.
He has been under suspension since March.
Harbaugh said on Wednesday that Brown will not return to the Ravens practice field until his appeal is heard by the league office.
“Antonio is a very talented player, and he’s got a lot of talent,” Harbaugh said.
“He’s still got a long way to go.
He needs to continue to improve as a player and improve as an individual.
He still has a lot to learn.
We still think he’s going to have a great career.
But the fact is that he has to go back and play his next game.”
