It’s been nearly a year since the Detroit Lions attempted to trade RB Jerome Harrison to the Philadelphia Eagles. The deal was vetoed after it was determined Harrison had a brain tumor during the pre-trade physical with the Eagles’ medical staff. Harrison underwent a surgical procedure to remove the tumor shortly after the diagnosis. In May, his agent told the team’s official website that his client was “progressing” with his recovery. Harrison still remains on the Lions’ Reserve/Non-Football Illness list. On Wednesday, Cleveland Browns return man Josh Cribbs painted a bleaker picture of Harrison’s current status. Talking to the media less than a week after he was knocked out on a punt return, Cribbs said his family doesn’t want him to end up like his friend Harrison. “(My wife) wants me to be seen by another specialist,” Cribbs said. “She wants me to get a CAT scan, especially with what happened to [Harrison]. I still go over to his house every now and then and talk to him. He’s doing pretty bad. He’s in and out of the hospital with seizures. They just don’t want the same thing to happen to me.” A Kalamazoo native, Harrison signed with the Lions as a free agent prior to the start of the 2011 season. Before coming to Detroit he spent the majority of his five-year career with the Browns.
