Ron Rivera Has Lymph Node Cancer

Recommended Posts

(fantasypros) Washington head coach Ron Rivera has been diagnosed with lymph node cancer, according to a report from ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. Schefter adds that Rivera has been told he cancer is "very treatable and curable".

Analysis: This is shocking news and is the latest bombshell in what has been a wild offseason for the Washington Football Team. According to Schefter, Rivera has "consulted with a number of doctors and specialists and is establishing a treatment plan with the team and an outside specialist. For now, it's business as usual for Washington but a "Plan B" is in place."

The reports don't really give much info. It implies lymphoma but some also say squamous cell carcinoma. If SCC metastasized to his nodes then it's not "early stage" as some articles report. But some of those are still very treatable.
