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.

What a lousy comment below. That should be dealt with by the web host. I'd rather just wish Harrison well, and hope his treatment gives him a fast recovery and chance at a long healthy life. A professional bummer saved his life. Talk about a silver lining....

If he wasn't very good, he would have been an upgrade in Philly since they suck.

Damn! This is awful news for Harrison! Prayers are defs with him that they are able to catch this tumour on time and that he will be able to make a full recovery.

Wow. What a blessing that he was traded and that this was discovered. Here's hoping it's in the early stages and that they can take care of it right away. Another blessing for Harrison is the medical treatment he should receive throughout this process. Hoping to see you back on the field soon!
