Just four days after he posted an emotional message to social media indicating that he was awaiting tests of a throat biopsy, former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver and Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Irvin shared some good news.
“Thank you God for continuing to answer Prayers and Thank you ALL for Praying,” Irvin wrote Sunday in a message posted to his verified Instagram account. “I spoke with Dr St John at UCLA Medical and she has informed me that all test have come back 100!% clean. NO CANCER!!!!!! It is impossible to express my family and my appreciation for the overwhelming out pour of love, support and prayers. I was on my threshing floor dealing with the stronghold of fear. You all covered and encourage me. … To God be the Glory.”
Irvin’s first Instagram post on Wednesday shared a photo of him lying in a hospital bed, where he said he had spent two days undergoing tests and was “terrified” because he said he had lost his father at the age of 51 to throat cancer.
Irvin, 53, said the issue stemmed from his losing his voice after the Week 13 game on Nov. 29 when the Cowboys defeated the New Orleans Saints, 13-10, and that his issues persisted for two months.
