The NFL announced Saturday that Devon Still did not make the Bengals’ 53-man roster and was released from the Cincinnati team in anticipation of the league’s Sept. 5 deadline.

Still and his daughter Leah captured the hearts of football fans and non-fans alike as 5-year-old Leah fought a public battle with stage 4 cancer. She was given a 50-50 chance to live at age 4, but after rounds of chemotherapy and stem cell treatments, she’s been in remission since March.

But Bengals Director of Business Development Bob Bedinghaus told WCPO that Still’s medical insurance will now “kick in” for the next five years. So Still, and most importantly, Leah, will be covered under the NFL’s health insurance for the next five years, regardless of whether or not Still is picked up as a free agent.
