NFL player whose child is battling cancer makes Bengals history

CINCINNATI, OH (KTRK) -- It's a story that's touched people across the nation about a pro football player who is helping his four-year-old daughter fight pediatric cancer.

We told you earlier this month about Devon Still. The defensive lineman had been cut by the Cincinnati Bengals after training camp, losing insurance for his daughter.

When the Bengals found out what he was going through, they signed him to their practice squad so he can keep the insurance.

Well, this week, Still was moved to the Bengals' active roster. His jersey is on sale, selling more on Tuesday than any other Bengals' player in history.

New Orleans head coach Sean Payton bought 100 of them himself.

The club is donating the proceeds from the sales to a children's hospital and pediatric cancer research. The sales have already brought in more than $100,000.
