The long fight of Devon Still and daughter Leah Still is over. The former Bengals and current Texans defensive end and his daughter beat cancer. 

As recently as July, Still updated the status of his daughter saying she remained cancer free. This is a battle Devon and Leah have been publicly battling for more than two full football seasons -- Still has been cut by the Bengals and re-signed and cut again.

On Monday night he provided an update on his daughter, proclaiming she "beat cancer." 

Things in sports and life don't always come around with a happy ending.

For a story the world's been watching for a while now -- and a battle the Stills have been fighting for several years -- it's wonderful to know little Leah gets to head home victorious over a horrible enemy.
