Jerome Harrison closing in on NFL prime time?

HARRISON at practice on Saturday

JEROME HARRISON, the former Washington State star, has made peace with his hometown. And as he enters his fourth NFL season, the diminutive running back also could be on the verge of serious playing time -- finally -- for the Cleveland Browns. But Harrison is taking nothing for granted, the Kalamazoo Gazette reports in a wide-ranging story about its native son and 2005 consensus All-American.

Ex-Browns coach Romeo Crennel has been publicly criticized for his failure to make good on statements that he'd make Harrison a significant part of the Cleveland game plan, The Gazette notes. New Browns boss Eric Mangini is expected to feature Harrison considerably more, especially to spell 10-year veteran Jamal Lewis, who, admittedly, can no longer carry the load he once did.
