NFL trade that was voided b/c of a health issue may have saved a life
LINK

...pretty crazy.


TL;DR version:
Trade b/w Eagles and Lions that involved Ronnie Brown and Jerome Harrison was voided b/c they found a brain tumor (Harrison) while performing the required physical.
...a physical that would not have been performed otherwise.

"The tumor is now being treated, according to sources...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"

... Eagles saved his life. Everyone should cheer for the Eagles from now on, since we have saved 2 NFL lives this year.

Glad they caught it. I still remember him when he was an Eagle last year.

Not to be insensitive or anything, all the best to Harrison, but I just have to laugh at the Lions being down ANOTHER running back.

Agreed, I am having issues now but am afraid of what they will tell me. Brain tumor? That is sad, such a serious problem and I hope he makes it out ok. Good thing this trade happened.

Me neither, but even if you do go to the doctor they won't give you all these tests, he'll hit your knee a few times with that metal thingy and check your breathing and say "everything ok?" "yah" "ok good" :lol:
