Harrison welcome in Philly


(6/29/2011) The Eagles official team website reports that Philadelphia might not be ready to trust rookie RB Dion Lewis as the primary backup to LeSean McCoy. Last year, Jerome Harrison filled in nicely as the No. 2 RB behind McCoy after coming over midway through 2010 (he ran for 6.0 yards a carry on 40 rushes with the Eagles) but he is likely slated to his the free agent market when business resumes this offseason. Harrison could very well return to the Eagles, and Andy Reid has said he was more than pleased with Harrison's performance, but the Eagles certainly can't count on that coming to fruition. Lewis, McCoy's one-time replacement at the University of Pittsburgh, was drafted by the Eagles in the fifth round of last April's draft and profiles as a dynamic, albeit undersized, option out of the backfield who is surprisingly adept between the tackles. But the Eagles aren't likely to pin their entire hopes on the unproven rookie.

Harrison to see more touches vs. Cowboys?


(12/30/2010) Eagles RB Jerome Harrison has been little-used this season but he might see more playing time in Week 17 against the Cowboys. With Philadelphia already locked in as the No. 3 seed in the NFC, coach Andy Reid might rest his starters as the outcome has no bearing on the playoffs. Harrison should be able to see more touches if LeSean McCoy is pulled from the game.

Harrison stuck behind healthy McCoy
