Jerome Harrison

The proposed trade of running back Jerome Harrison to Philadelphia was voided because Harrison was found to have a brain tumor.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter breaks the news and points out that the failed trade could be a blessing in disguise for Harrison. Without the trade, Harrison wouldn’t have taken a physical that revealed the tumor.

This helps explain how Harrison wasn’t on the injury report last week: The Lions had no idea.

Hopefully Harrison caught this early and can treat it aggressively now. Our thoughts are with Harrison and we wish him good health.



Hopefully they found it in time.. Get well soon

How does a routine physical reveal a brain tumor?

He must've been complaining about severe headaches, double vision, pain, etc.

It must have been more than a routine physical. They were probably looking for signs of concussions or something along those lines

The only way i know they can check for brain tumors is by giving people MRI/CT Scan

But he had to have had some noticeable symptoms affecting him.

The Eagles/Lions could have potentially saved this mans life. Great to hear they found it.
