As Philadelphia Eagles doctors were giving newly acquired running back Jerome Harrison his physical, they discovered a brain tumor that nullified a trade with the Detroit Lions, according to two league sources.

The trade might have actually saved Harrison's life, the sources said. Without the deal being made, Harrison would not have undergone a physical. The tumor is now being treated, according to sources.

Harrison could not be reached for comment.

The Eagles would have sent running back Ronnie Brown to the Lions in exchange for Harrison and an undisclosed pick in the 2013 NFL draft. Brown arrived in Detroit but never got to practice Wednesday.

Harrison is not expected to play again this season, but his long-term prognosis both for life and his football career appear to be good, sources said. He is visiting with more doctors Thursday.

The voided trade has left the Lions with major issues at running back, after Jahvid Best suffered the third concussion of his career in last week's loss to San Francisco.

Wow, that's amazing. Maybe that explains why he was listed as one of the meanest players in the NFL. (And I actually mean that seriously, depending on where the tumor is.)

When asked what his Make-A-Wish would be, Harrison responded that the Chiefs defense already granted it back in '09.

Still the only reason anyone even knows his name.

Wasn't Jerome on the list too?


Yep, he was: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/multimedia/photo_gallery/1110/nfl.poll.meanest.player/content.13.html

I think it's just the tumor talking, though.

Javid Best was rumored to be done for the year. Maybe Gun can get LJ or Kolby a job
