Harrison the FedEx Ground Player of the Week

Browns running back Jerome Harrison has been named FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week for games played on December 17-21, the league announced today.

Harrison rushed for career-highs with 286 yards on attempts (8.4 avg.) and three rushing touchdowns of 71, eight and 28 yards, as the Browns defeated the Kansas City Chiefs, 41-34, on Sunday. Harrison’s rushing total marks the third-most in a single-game in NFL history, trailing only Adrian Peterson (296 in 2007) and Jamal Lewis (295 in 2003). His total also surpassed Jim Brown’s previous team record of 237 rushing yards, set in 1957 and tied in 1961.

This is the first FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week Award for Harrison in his career. He is the first Browns player to win the award since running back Jamal Lewis was honored on September 20, 2007.
