It looks like Jerome Harrison won't be coming back to Philadelphia, after all. Just a day after it was announced that the Eagles had traded running back Ronnie Brown to the Detroit Lions for running back Harrison and a seventh-round pick, ESPN is reporting that the deal has been voided because Harrison had health issues.
Harrison had not had a carry in the Lions' two games leading up to the trade and had not appeared in any of the three games prior to the deal. The move being voided prevents Harrison from returning to the team he played eight games for a season ago after he was acquired in a trade with the Cleveland Browns.
In addition, the Eagles will hold on to Brown, who also has not had a carry the past two weeks. Brown was originally thought to be used as a goal-line back when the Eagles signed him as a free agent this past offseason, but has seen little action since an embarrassing and costly fumble Oct. 2 against San Francisco. The former Miami Dolphin has 38 yards on 13 rushing attempts for the Eagles this season.
