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.

Report: Jerome Harrison has brain tumor

This really it home for me because our four-year-old had a large brain tumor removed in June of this year.  She was in the hospital for a month, but now she is doing remarkably well and if you saw her you would have no idea she ever had an issue.  I hope that Harrison does as well as she is doing.

I think all the guys yelling, "It's not a tumor!" are refering to the old Ah-nold Schwarrzenegger movie, "Kindergarten Cop". A little kid asks him while he's posing as a kindergarten teacher if he has a tumor, I forget the reason why. Ah-nold yells loudly....."It's not a TOO-MAHH!" "At aahhhlll!".............LOL He was a cop posing as a kindergarten teacher....fun movie if you ever get to catch it on cable........

Thanks to more awareness regarding concussions, Harrison's prognosis is a lot better. Best of luck. Go Eagles!

Ugh.  I thought the "curse" was supposed to be over.  Hopefully, Harrison has a full recovery.  Over the years, there has been far too much heartbreak for Lions fans off the field.  Old-time Lions fans still remember Don McCafferty, Chuck Hughes, Eric Andolsek, and Mike Utley.  Get well soon, Jerome.
