The Lions, looking for more of a power back behind Jahvid Best, have traded Jerome Harrison and an undisclosed 2013 draft pick (rumored to be a seventh-rounder) to Philadelphia for Ronnie Brown.
UPDATE: Um, never mind. Apparently Harrison failed his physical, and the deal is off.
Turns out during the physical that the Eagles discovered Harrison had a brain tumor, and the trade being voided may have prevented much worse things from happening.

After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
