Horrible news for Kenechi Udeze – the Vikings‘ defensive end has reportedly been diagnosed with leukemia.
Doctors are still in the process of determining exactly which type of leukemia, a cancer of the blood, Udeze is dealing with. Neither the Vikings nor Udeze’s agent have commented.
Udeze finally broke through a little bit last season for the Vikes, registering 5 sacks after a frustrating 2006 which saw him put up a goose-egg in that department. Now his future in football is obviously on-hold. The only thing he’s concerned about right now is his life.
