How a trade saved Jerome Harrison's life

From Comcast SportsNet
DETROIT (AP) -- ESPN is reporting that Detroit Lions running back Jerome Harrison has a brain tumor. The network cited two NFL sources it did not identify in Thursday's report. It says the tumor was revealed when Harrison had a physical after being dealt this week by Detroit to the Philadelphia Eagles in a trade that was voided by the discovery. Lions coach Jim Schwartz wouldn't confirm or deny the report, citing a privacy issue. He said Harrison was back on the team's 53-man roster. Harrison's agent, Mitch Frankel, did not return phone and email messages. The Lions wanted to trade Harrison to Philadelphia for Ronnie Brown and a draft pick. Detroit needs help because Jahvid Best had his third concussion on Sunday.

Trump wishes Kraft good luck, says Brady called to congratulate him

Trump wishes Kraft good luck, says Brady called to congratulate him

President-elect Donald Trump made sure to thank a few of his supporters from New England -- particularly those at 1 Patriot Place -- during a speech on the eve of his inauguration to the nation's highest office. 

Patriots chairman and CEO Robert Kraft, coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady all earned shout-outs from Trump. Kraft was one of many Trump donors present for a dinner at Washington, DC's Union Station, where he was singled out by the soon-to-be-president. 

"In the audience we have somebody that's under no pressure whatsoever because he's got a great quarterback named Tom Brady and a great coach named Belichick: Bob Kraft," Trump said. "Good luck, Bob.

"Your friend Tom Brady just called. He feels good. He called to congratulate us. He feels good. Good luck. You're going to do great."

Trump gave one extra nod to Belichick, who he says taught him to out-work his competition. 

"I out-worked everybody," Trump said. "I think I out-worked anyone who ever ran for office. I learned that from Belichick."
