LATROBE, Pa. — Pittsburgh Steelers’ linebacker James Harrison doesn’t want to face a suspension. He is also not interested in talking to NFL representatives, either.

The NFL’s senior vice president of labor policy and league affairs, Adolpho Birch, sent a letter Monday to the NFL Players Association detailing a plan to indefinitely suspend Harrison, Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers and Mike Neal if they don’t speak with the league by Aug. 25 as part of its investigation into an alleged link to performance-enhancing drugs.

The players’ punishment would end at the discretion of Commissioner Roger Goodell once interviews are completed, according to the letter obtained by The Associated Press.

Harrison said he isn’t interested.

“I’m not going to answer questions for every little thing that some Tom, Dick and Harry comes up with,” Harrison said. “If that’s the case, somebody can come out and say that James Harrison is a pedophile. (Are) they going to suspend me and put me in an investigation for being a pedophile just because somebody said it?”

Harrison said he doesn’t want to be suspended, but he is prepared to take the situation as far as New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady, who fought his four-game “Deflategate” suspension for 18 months – nearly to the U.S. Supreme Court – before deciding to no longer proceed with the legal process. His suspension begins next month.

HALL OF FAME GAME: Four fans have sued the NFL over the Hall of Fame game in Canton that was canceled because of poor field conditions.

The class-action lawsuit was filed Thursday in federal court in northern Ohio on behalf of all the ticket holders who lost out when the Aug. 7 game was canceled after paint congealed and hardened on portions of the field at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium. The Pro Football Hall of Fame also was named in the suit.

JETS: Running back Matt Forte says he’ll “definitely” be ready to play in the regular-season opener against Cincinnati despite a hamstring injury that has prevented him from fully practicing during training camp.

BILLS: Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus was suspended by the NFL for violating the league’s substance abuse policy for the second time in two years.

HALL OF FAME: Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and former Commissioner Paul Tagliabue have been selected as finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2017.

Jones and Tagliabue were chosen by the hall’s contributor committee.

The 2017 class will be selected during Super Bowl weekend in February.

TITANS-EAGLES: In need of wide receivers, Philadelphia acquired Dorial Green-Beckham from Tennessee for versatile offensive lineman Dennis Kelly.

CHIEFS: Running back Jamaal Charles made his training camp debut, though trainer Rick Burkholder downplayed his arrival by calling it simply “part of the process.”

Charles had been on the physically-unable-to-perform list the first three weeks of camp, spending his time going through rehab with the training staff. Charles underwent surgery last season to repair the ACL in his right knee, which he tore in Week 5 against the Bears.

49ERS: With Colin Kaepernick dealing with tightness in his throwing shoulder and Thaddeus Lewis out for the season with a knee injury, San Francisco signed free-agent quarterback Christian Ponder.
