With a brain tumor, Lions running back Jerome Harrison, whose condition was discovered last week during a physical before a now-voided trade that would have sent him, along with an undisclosed 2013 draft pick, to Philadelphia for running back Ronnie Brown. According to Lions teammates, Harrison had been complaining recently of headaches that led him to wear sunglasses at practices and later to be fitted for a helmet visor. On Oct. 19, shortly after reporting the condition to Eagles team doctors and undergoing an MRI, he received the results, which revealed a tumor, known as an ependymoma, in his fourth ventricle. Harrison, who has yet to comment publicly, underwent surgery to remove the tumor on Friday and was placed on the Lions' reserve/nonfootball illness list. He is not expected to play again this season.
