On Tuesday, the Eagles announced that running back Ronnie Brown had been traded to the Lions for running back Jerome Harrison and a seventh-round draft pick. Like every trade, the deal was subject to both players passing a physical.

Harrison apparently didn’t.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the deal has been voided, due to Harrison’s “health issues.”

Curiously, Harrison didn’t appear anywhere on the Week Six injury report, and he wasn’t generally known to be injured.

Maybe the Eagles doctors decided during the physical that Harrison had dirt on his face.

Regardless, Brown will now revert to the Eagles -- and Harrison will return to the Lions.
