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.

Wow.  Hopefully it's benign.  If not, let's hope it's treatable and discovered early enough.  Best wishes to Jerome and his family.

Karma: The total effect of a person's actions and conduct during the successive phases of the person's existence, regarded as determining the person's destiny. 

Kotex, if you genuinely believe in Karma I would be careful stepping off the curb because there is a Philly Transit bus with your name on it. You are the very definition of why Philly fans get such a bad reputation. If you don't get hit by a bus, do the gene pool a favor and make yourself a nice big cocktail glass full and drain cleaner and chug it down.

Jerome apparently did something right somewhere. I hope this does save his life.

Stunned is the only word I could think of when I was told about this. A possible change of venue is often a life altering thing, but not to this magnitude. Prayers are with Jerome and his family. Thank God that this trade was made and that the Eagle's Doctor's were thourough enough to find this. Just goes to show that there are more important things than sports.
