Fox NFL sideline reporter Erin Andrews revealed in an exclusive interview with The MMQB on Tuesday that she underwent surgery to treat cervical cancer in October.

According to Emily Kaplan of The MMQB, the 38-year-old broadcasting veteran was notified of the cancer diagnosis the day before covering a Week 3 game between the New York Giants and Washington Washington Football Team during the 2016 regular season.

Andrews underwent surgery Oct. 11 and didn’t initially notify colleagues of her condition.

Despite the surgery, she managed to be on the sidelines for Fox’s featured game the following week: “Should I have been standing for a full game five days after surgery? Let’s just say the doctor didn’t recommend that. … Sports were my escape. I needed to be with my crew.”

Lee ‘Q’ O’Denat, WorldStarHipHop Founder, Dies At 43:

Lee “Q” O’Denat, the founder of the immensely popular site, died Monday at 43, the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed to CNN. The cause of death has been listed as atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.

The site, which O’Denat started in 2005, became a thriving aggregator. In a profile of its founder, the New York Times dubbed it “a YouTube filtered through the lens of hip-hop culture — a grab bag of rap videos, celebrity interviews, sports clips, super cuts and the latest viral sensation.”

Arizona Motorist Who Saved Trooper: I Had To Help:

Thomas Yoxall says there was no time to think, no time to be scared. A state trooper was being attacked and he just couldn’t stand by and do nothing.

“I had to help. I knew I had to help,” he told reporters in Phoenix on Tuesday. “To me there was no choice.”
It happened very quickly as Yoxall drove west along Interstate 10 just west of the small town of Tonopah. Yoxall saw the emergency lights of a state patrol SUV and flares on the ground. He spied a man on top of trooper Ed Andersson, a 27-year veteran, and got out with his gun.
Yoxall said he told the attacker to stop. The assailant didn’t and Yoxall killed him.
“This is something that I will live with, but I wouldn’t change it, because another man got to go home to his family and his family gets to keep him a little while longer and that’s the important part,” Yoxall said of the January 12 predawn incident.
