Lions Place Jerome Harrison On Reserve/Non-Football Illness List

This offseason, there was some confusion surrounding Jerome Harrison's inclusion on the Detroit Lions' roster. It was believed that his contract was set to expire after last season, but he remained on the roster. It turned out that had something to do with Harrison going on the reserve/non-football illness list last season after a brain tumor was discovered. As of Monday, he was still counting against the 90-man roster.

On Tuesday, the Lions cleared Harrison's roster spot by once again placing him on the reserve/non-football illness list. The move means Harrison is out for the 2012 season, and it means the Lions cleared enough room for the two signings reported on Monday to become official.

Although Harrison is out for 2012, his agent provided a positive-sounding update to Tim Twentyman. According to his agent, Harrison is recovering from the brain surgery he had and is "progressing" in his recovery. Obviously, he won't be playing football anytime soon, but it's good to hear that Harrison is making progress.
