Last year, an effort to trade running back Jerome Harrison from Detroit to Philadelphia resulted in the discovery of a brain tumor, during the physical administered by the Eagles. Browns receiver Josh Cribbs, a one-time teammate of Harrison’s in Cleveland, says that Harrison is still having serious health issues.
In discussing his recent helmet-popping concussion against the Ravens, Cribbs mentioned Harrison. “I still go over to his house every now and then and talk to him,” Cribbs told the Cleveland Plain Dealer (via MLive.com). “He’s doing pretty bad. He’s in and out of the hospital with seizures.”
Harrison remains on the Lions’ non-football injury/illness list, and there’s no indication when he’ll be able to play again. The fact that Harrison is suffering seizures suggests that Harrison has a long way to go before he will be able to return to the field.
Either way, we wish him the best as he continues to overcome this challenge.
