James Harrison will not be getting a refund from the NFL.

The Steelers' outside linebacker lost both appeals filed on his behalf for a pair of fines totaling a combined $95,000.

The NFL docked Harrison $75,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit that knocked Browns wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi out of an Oct. 17 game at Heinz Field. He was fined $20,000 for a personal foul penalty on Saints quarterback Drew Brees in an Oct. 31 game.

Ted Cottrell, an NFL appeals officer on such matters, upheld both fines.

"James was very upset about the outcome and did not feel it was the proper outcome," Bill Parise, Harrison's agent, said Monday. "I'm disappointed with the process, the verdict."

Harrison could be looking at another fine after getting flagged for roughing the passer Sunday. Harrison was penalized for using the crown of his helmet while hitting Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in the chest.

Harrison has been fined $100,000 this season. Two of his three fines were for plays that did not draw penalties.
