Another NFL Player with a Dog Problem

PITTSBURGH -- A pit bull owned by Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison has reportedly attacked the player's young son.

A spokesman for the defending Super Bowl champions told The Associated Press that this was a personal matter for Harrison and the club would not comment further.

An unidentified neighbor told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette one of the star player's three dogs got loose Thursday and attacked the boy, James III. His age was not immediately available.

The newspaper and WTAE-TV reported the boy was taken to UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. The hospital declined comment. The Post-Gazette reported a second person was hurt.

Harrison is the NFL Defensive Player of the Year. He declined to join the Steelers on a White House visit Thursday.
