Cincinnati defensive tackle Devon Still reported good news Tuesday night about his daughter Leah, who has been battling neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer.

Along with a photo of him with Leah on Instagram, Still wrote, "That moment you get the best news you've ever received and don't know what to do so you just flex!! We got Leah's MIBG Scans back tonight and the doctors told us they didn't see any active disease in her body!!! We still have to wait for her MRI and bone biopsy results later this week. But the doctors feel very optimistic about them because of the results from today. So for now we celebrate!!"

An MIBG scan is an imaging test used to locate and diagnose certain types of cancer. The Bengals donated all proceeds from sales of Still jerseys this past season to pediatric cancer research.
