Josh Cribbs provided an update on Lions running back Jerome Harrison, and the news didn't sound good. After being knocked unconscious during Sunday's game in Baltimore, Cribbs told the media that his family doesn't want him to continue playing football. He mentioned Lions running back Jerome Harrison in his comments, having the following to say about his former teammate (via the Cleveland Plains-Dealer):

"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."

Doctors discovered that Harrison had a brain tumor when performing a physical to complete a trade to the Philadelphia Eagles. The trade of Harrison for Ronnie Brown was never completed because of the condition. Harrison underwent surgery to remove the tumor in October of 2011, and the surgery to remove the tumor was successful.

Harrison had hoped that he'd eventually be able to return to the Lions, but was placed on the reserve/non-football illness list in May of 2012.
