Panthers offensive lineman recovering from cancer surgery



CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A Panthers reserve offensive lineman is recovering after having surgery from testicular cancer.

Andrew McDonald underwent surgery to remove the cancer on May 20.

McDonald noticed a little bump and the cancer was confirmed with an ultrasound performed by a team physician.

McDonald said he believes the cancer has not spread. He will be out until the start of training camp.

McDonald, 25, joined the Panthers last season as a practice squad player.  He previously played for the Miami Dolphins.

The 6 foot 6 inch tackle played college football at Indiana.
