According to his most recent scans, ESPN broadcaster Chris Mortensen’s throat cancer has been "virtually reduced to zero."
In early January, our favorite word-fumbling commentator
was diagnosed with Stage IV throat (oropharyngel) cancer. Mort's on-camera performances were never as informative as Adam "Two Phone"
Schefter, nor as charismatic as Chris "The Flirty One"
Berman, but they were hilarious in the same confused way a drunk person uses an ATM
. He brought much needed fun and laughter to years of NFL Insider updates, and it's great to hear he's doing well.
It's been painful watching the struggling network struggle even more without Mort, so not only are we stoked he's healthy, we're happy this year's NFL coverage will feature Mort in some capacity.
