Jerome Harrison Brain Tumor, The Sports Xchange Report: brain tumor found in Harrison’s physical void Eagles on Tuesday pending trade with the Lions, running back Jerome Harrison because physical revealed he has a brain tumor, according to ESPN.com.
This trade would have sent Harrison, who was a backup with the Eagles last season but signed with the Lions in August, returning to Philadelphia in exchange for veteran Ronnie Brown.
Brown was in Detroit on Wednesday to make their own physical and was not allowed to practice with the Lions the day after the trade was announced.
Without trade and further medical examination, it is unlikely Harrison would have been detected tumor, ESPN.com reported.
On Thursday, Brown will be back in Philadelphia after the Eagles revoked the exchange based on “health problems not previously declared,” with Harrison. Harrison played for the Eagles last season.
The Eagles released a statement Tuesday on trade – the acquisition of Harrison outline and a draft pick in 2013 to Brown. But Harrison did not pass a physical exam and Brown, who was in line for playing time in Detroit with Jahvid Best (concussion) doubtful at least a week and possibly longer, is now in limbo.
Brown was rarely used in the offense for the Eagles, and lost the ball on the goal line three weeks ago against the 49ers in a loss to come from the front. The Eagles used freshman Dion Lewis as backup LeSean McCoy later in the game.
Harrison has not had a play in three games and recorded 14 carries for 41 yards this season. Remains to be seen whether he will play a role in Detroit’s offense in light of medical reports on Thursday that his football future cloud.
Maurice Morris appears in the letterhead of the Lions deep with the best patient.
