It’s football season. As many of us fans prepare tailgate festivities and our favorite teams finalize their strategies for the first set of games, one defensive tackle understands why he’s being placed on the practice squad instead of the starting lineup. For now, Devon Still won’t be traveling with Cincinnati Bengals. Instead, he’ll be focusing on his 4-year-old daughter’s battle with cancer.
“I can’t give football 100 percent right now,” Still said, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Still found out in June that his daughter Leah has neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer. Neuroblastoma is the most common extracranial solid cancer in childhood and the most common cancer in infancy, with an incidence of about six hundred and fifty cases per year in the U.S.
