>>Bengals' Still's Daughter Has Tumor Removed

(Philadelphia, PA) -- The daughter of Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still is recovering after having her cancerous tumor completely removed Thursday. Four-year-old Leah underwent a nearly six-hour surgery, but still faces another round of chemotherapy, radiation and stem-cell transplants. Still was originally cut by the Bengals before the season started, but was named to the practice squad by the team so that he could retain insurance to pay for his daughter's medical bills. He has since been promoted to the active roster, and the team is closing in on selling 10-thousand of his jerseys to raise one-million-dollars for the Cincinnati Children's Hospital's pediatric cancer research efforts.
