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.

A & H talk all the crap you want and laugh trying to get under people's skin.  Some day you'll meet your maker and have to answer to him.
Cancer sucks.  I'm sure you know somebody who's had it.  Have them read your scribbles and see if they think it's funny.  Have a heart.

Cougar Nation is with you Jerome. Thank God for that trade. Since he was traded just a season ago, this seems like very early detection.

Obviously school just let out. These posts are incredibly disrespectful to Jerome Harrison's condition and amazingly immature. Why don't you all make yourselves some PB&J and go play with your X-Boxes. Pathetic.
