Tommie Harris is toeing the company line.
When asked repeatedly about his benching on Monday night, he replied "They had to go with what was best for the team".
Harris denied a report claiming he wanted to be traded.
And, while he claimed he wasn't frustrated about sitting out, Harris admitted why the news was disturbing, "Because it was Monday night football".
If Tommie Harris plays this week against the Giants on Sunday Night Football, head coach Lovie Smith says he'll tell him right before the game., just like he would with any and every other player.
