Well, the Percy Harvin thing is going to be a story for a while, but let's try to balance that out with some real positiveness, shall we? Why, yes, I think we shall.
We reported last week that linebacker Chad Greenway's father, Alan, was in hospice care because of a battle with cancer. Greenway told reporters today at mini-camp, however, that's not the case, according to our friends at 1500 ESPN in the Twin Cities.
Chad Greenway told reporters his dad is not on hospice care. He has leukemia and it's in remission. At home now. Per our intern @DeanBG— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) June 19, 2012
Pelissero later had a slight correction:
Correction on Greenway's dad -- he has been at home but is now at the Mayo clinic.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) June 19, 2012
But the leukemia is still in remission, from what has been said thus far.
This is outstanding news about Mr. Greenway, and hopefully his leukemia will remain in remission for a long time to come.
It probably also explains why Greenway is at the Vikings' mini-camp after having been excused by Coach Leslie Frazier last week during the Minnesota Vikings' Organized Team Activities.
