Report: Jerome Harrison has brain tumor

The Jerome Harrison-Ronnie Brown trade that was voided Wednesday between the Lions and the Eagles was thwarted by a brain tumor found in Harrison during a routine physical.

That’s the report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who writes, “Without trade, Jerome Harrison doesn't get physical. Without physical, doctors don't find brain tumor. Trade might have saved his life.”

Now, the disappointment some might have felt when the trade fell through Wednesday has to be tempered by the fortuitous discovery made by the Eagles doctors.

Also possible that the tumor was so small when Lions did the physical (back in August?) that it wasn't detectable.  If that's the case, Harrison is truly lucky that he was traded, and another physical done.  Wow. 


Best of luck, Jerome.  Hope you hit the field again before the end of the season.

Don't they have physicals before the season starts?  I wonder why the Lions doctors didnt find this?

Get well soon Jerome.  We still miss your presence on the Browns!  A real class act and a very good football player.

All you can say is wow!  Sucks for the Lions, they didn't get a trade and they'll probably lose Harrison as well.  This is probably a more spectacular trade than the Carson Palmer one.  I don't know of any other trade that has saved lives.  The only thing the Palmer trade was going to save was the Raiders season.
