Eagles, Browns Swap Running Backs
BEREA, Ohio (AP) — The Cleveland Browns have traded disgruntled running back Jerome Harrison to the Philadelphia Eagles for running back Mike Bell.
Harrison, who rushed for 561 yards in Cleveland’s final three games last season, has been upset with his role this year. He ran for just 6 yards on six carries last week in a loss to Atlanta. One week earlier, he didn’t carry the ball in Cleveland’s win over Cincinnati.
Browns coach Eric Mangini insisted that Harrison was not in his “doghouse.”
Bell has gained only 28 yards on 16 tries this season.
