Jerome Harrison’s Failed Physical Due to Discovery of a Brain Tumor

When the Eagles failed Jerome Harrison on his physical for “health issues” it reversed the trade between the Eagles and Lions and sent Ronnie Brown back to Philadelphia.  There were questions about what the “health issue” was and why Harrison wasn’t on the injury report all season if he had a serious enough issue to fail a physical.

Per ESPN, it turns out Harrison has a brain tumor that was discovered in his physical.  Little is known about his prognosis, but it can only be considered fortunate that he had to take the physical as a result of the trade, or who knows how long it would have gone undetected.

Best wishes from everybody at Lionsgab to Jerome and his family.
