Jerome Harrison Looking Good
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Jerome Harrison came to the NFL with a simple, modest plan.
"I just practice hard, line up where the coaches tell me to line up and make plays," he said.
In a short time, the little running back has made a bunch of them.
The 5-foot-9 rookie caught a 31-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter and finished with 107 total yards Friday night as the Cleveland Browns rallied for a 20-16 win over the Detroit Lions.
With the Browns down 16-10, third-string quarterback Derek Anderson hit Harrison in stride over the middle for the go-ahead score. Harrison, who rushed for 1,900 yards at Washington State in 2005, ran for 53 yards on nine carries and had six receptions for 54.
Browns coach Romeo Crennel has been impressed with Harrison's fast start.
"The Harrison kid caught the ball and ran with it," Crennel said. "He looked pretty good. He has quickness and change of pace. If he continues to improve, we'll all feel good."
Becoming a favorite with the coaches and that is something because Crennel doesnt like throwing the rookies in the mix so quickly. Lee Suggs was traded unfortunately that didnt work out. William Green didnt see much time look for Harrison to be the #2 back in this system.
