During his second season with the Browns, Harrison appeared in eight games.

On December 20, 2009 at Kansas City, Harrison broke Jim Brown's single game rushing record for a Cleveland Brown running back with 286 yards and three touchdowns, placing him third on the all time single-game rushing yards list behind Adrian Peterson, who had rushed for 296 yards and three touchdowns against the San Diego Chargers in 2007, and Jamal Lewis, who had rushed for 295 yards and two touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns in 2003. This surged a huge outburst of talent, rushing for 561 yards and 5 touchdowns in the last three games of the regular season.
