Report: Lions running back Jerome Harrison has brain tumor

The Detroit News

Running back Jerome Harrison failed his physical in Philadelphia after being traded from the Lions to the Eagles because doctors discovered a brain tumor, according to a report.

Sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that the trade might have might have saved Harrison's life, due to the physical that was performed.

Schefter was told by sources that while Harrison is not expected to play for the Lions again this season, his long-term prognosis for a normal life — and possibly even a football career — appear to be good.

The Lions on Thursday would not discuss results of Harrison's physical.

Harrison gained 41 yards on 14 carries in four games for the Lions this season.

A brain tumor wouldn't kill you before the end of the season would it? Spielman would have just walked it off and dealt with it after the season was over!


I'm sad to hear this. He's way young to have to deal with a brain tumor. I hope everything works out!

That failed trade may have been the luckiest break he could have ever had.
