Jerome Harrison Reportedly Has Brain Tumor

The trade between the Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles involving Ronnie Brown and Jerome Harrison was voided on Wednesday because of health issues with Harrison. What specifically was wrong was unclear, but the assumption was he failed his physical.

As it turns out, the trade was voided because Harrison's physical revealed he has a brain tumor, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Without trade, Jerome Harrison doesn't get physical. Without physical, doctors don't find brain tumor. Trade might have saved his life.

Yesterday, it was disappointing to hear that the Lions were unable to acquire Brown. Today, it's shocking to find out the trade was voided because of such a serious issue. Obviously, as Schefter suggested, it was a blessing that the Lions and Eagles tried to make a move involving Harrison, because it resulted in doctors discovering the tumor during the physical.

Schefter says that although Harrison is not expected to play again in 2011, "his long-term prognosis both for life and his football career appear to be good." That's great to hear.
