After a tumor was found in the brain of Jerome Harrison -- scuttling a trade between the Eagles and Lions -- Harrison underwent surgery to remove it Friday, and ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is reporting that the surgery went well and doctors believe “all of (the) tumor was removed”.
Which obviously is fantastic news for Harrison.
The report of the brain tumor was a scary moment for Harrison, who had been traded to the Eagles for Ronnie Brown.
But during the physical performed by Philadelphia doctors, after Harrison complained of headaches (strong enough where Brown had to wear sunglasses on the practice field), an MRI revealed a brain tumor. Which means the trade, even though it was voided, might have been the best thing ever to happen to Harrison.
As my colleague Ryan Wilson pointed out on Friday, Lions coach Jim Schwartz visited Harrison in the hospital before he underwent brain surgery.
"He was in very good spirits," Schwartz said. "But after that, I don’t know if I want to talk too much. It’s one of those things, it’s a non-football thing, and I’ll just let him take it away from that spot."
