Former Browns, Lions RB Jerome Harrison Battling Seizures, Josh Cribbs Says
When the Detroit Lions traded running back Jerome Harrison to the Philadelphia Eagles last season, heads were turned when the deal was voided. Eagles team doctors determined the running back had a brain tumor.
Harrison had the tumor removed and hasn't played since. His former Cleveland Browns teammate, Josh Cribbs, told MLive.com that Harrison's health has declined to the point that he is suffering a string of post-tumor seizures.
After Cribbs suffered a nasty concussion against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 4, his family urged him to walk away from football.
"(My wife) wants me to be seen by another specialist," Cribbs told MLive.com. "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."
