Former Browns RB Jerome Harrison Out for 2012; Panthers Claim Armond Smith

Get well, 'Ghost'!

Last season, we reported that it was discovered that former Cleveland Browns running back Jerome Harrison, then a member of the Detroit Lions, had a brain tumor and needed to have surgery. Harrison had surgery to remove the tumor and is "progressing" according to his agent, via the Detroit Lions official website. With that said, Harrison isn't progressing well enough to be under consideration to play during the 2012-2013 NFL season, as the Lions placed him on the Reserve/Non-Football Illness list.

The Lions had to declare that Harrison would not be eligible to participate in the 2012 regular season or postseason for him not to count toward the 90-man roster while on the Reserve/Non-Football Illness list.

We continue to wish Harrison the best on his road to recovery.

In other running back news, the Carolina Panthers signed running back Armond Smith off waivers from the Browns. Smith joins a crowded backfield in Carolina, where DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart, and Mike Tolbert are the team's top three backs. Should the Panthers trade someone like Stewart, maybe Smith will have a shot at making their final roster.
