Harrison is seeking treatment now for a brain tumor discovered in a routine physical when the Lions tried to trade him earlier this week to the Philadelphia Eagles for Ronnie Brown. The trade was immediately voided when doctors discovered the tumor, but it is hoped the tumor was discovered in time to save his life:

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.

It is safe to say that this trade may have saved Harrison’s life, as the tumor would not have been discovered without the physical.
