Former Browns Running Back Jerome Harrison Reportedly Has Brain Tumor

Big news out of Philadelphia/Detroit today, as the trade sending running back Jerome Harrison and a 2013 draft pick to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for Ronnie Brown has been voided due to injury issues to Harrison - namely, 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.

As you probably recall, Harrison was originally drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the fifth round of the 2006 NFL Draft. Harrison played his first five seasons with the Browns, and actually earned the starting role by the end of the 2009 season. He broke Jim Brown's single game franchise rushing record on Dec. 20, 2009 against the Kansas City Chiefs, with 286 yards and three touchdowns, running like a man possessed. Eventually, he would lose his starting job to Peyton Hillis, at the begging of the 2010 season, at which point he was traded to the Eagles.

At this point, let's just all hope that Harrison can recover from this and that it's as not-serious as a brain tumor can be.
