Popular ESPN NFL insider Chris Mortensen is battling throat cancer and will take a sabbatical.


"More than a week ago, I was diagnosed with a Stage IV throat cancer," Mortensen said in a statement Friday. "My focus shifted significantly to gathering information about the specifics of this cancer. The initial diagnosis was confirmed Friday and there is another test remaining that will determine the best possible treatment plan that will commence in the very immediate future.

He sounded bad when he was on camera several weeks ago.   I actually thought he was having cognitive impairment issues.

Sorry to hear that - stage IV is not good - as a character on The Sopranos once said, there is no stage V

Mort is an actual reporter as opposed to clowns like Skip and Stephen A.

Very sad to hear this. I've always admired his professionalism and class.

Let's hope for the best.
