Devon and Leah together at the height of the brave girl's cancer battleBad news for our Houston Texans: defensive end Devon Still has just been placed on the injured reserve list after suffering a foot injury that required surgical repair.

Before coming to the Texans, Still spent three seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, and passed all of 2015 as a free agent. Though he had not had one start since joining the Texans, Still had appeared in three games this season and had contributed three tackles in his final game against the Tennessee Titans.

Despite his lackluster performance here in Houston, Still is still an inspiration to many fans—the player has been very public about his now 6-year-old daughter Leah's fight with cancer—in fact, Cincinnati kept him on their team roster back in 2014 for the most part so the family wouldn’t lose health insurance and be unable to cover her treatments. Thankfully, Leah went into remission and Sill found a new home in Texas. For the interim of his recovery, the Texans have promoted defensive end Brandon Dunn to fill Still's spot on the roster.
