Great pickup for the Lions. Didn't really cost them anything as Harrison didn't play too much. They have Maurice Morris as the number 2 anyways but I could definitely see Brown working his way up to being number 2 on the depth chart.

Not anymore. Trade was voided.

Yeah, turns out Jerome Harrison has a brain tumor.

As Philadelphia Eagles doctors were giving newly acquired running back Jerome Harrison his physical, they discovered a brain tumor that nullified a trade with the Detroit Lions, according to two league sources.

The trade might have might have actually saved Harrison's life, the sources said. Without the deal being made, Harrison would not have undergone a physical. The tumor is now being treated, according to sources.

Harrison could not be reached for comment.

Harrison is not expected to play again this season, but his long-term prognosis both for life and his football career appear to be good, sources said. He is visiting with more doctors Thursday.

The voided trade has left the Lions with major issues at running back because star running back Jahvid Best the third concussion of his career in last week's loss to San Francisco.

All the best to Jerome

That's crazy. In the end its good that he got traded because they wouldn't have found the tumor.

Glad to hear that the long term outlook is bright for him.

Wow, that's fortunate for him, in a way. Best luck, mister 286 yards against the Chiefs.

**** cancer.

wow, this goes down in my book as probably the best trade i've ever seen.

zero players, zero draft picks, and no money; but one life is a pretty solid pickup.
