The proposed trade of running back Jerome Harrison to Philadelphia was voided because Harrison was found to have a brain tumor.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter breaks the news and points out that the failed trade could be a blessing in disguise for Harrison. Without the trade, Harrison wouldn’t have taken a physical that revealed the tumor.

This helps explain how Harrison wasn’t on the injury report last week: The Lions had no idea.

Hopefully Harrison caught this early and can treat it aggressively now. Our thoughts are with Harrison and we wish him good health.
