Dallas Cowboys legend Michael Irvin revealed on Instagram Sunday that the testing he underwent for throat cancer, same cancer that claimed the life of his father, came back 100 percent clean.
The “demon” that had been chasing him throughout his life wasn’t there.
On Sunday, he expressed gratitude and thanks for the outpouring wave of support as he spent two days in Los Angeles at the hospital undergoing tests on his throat.

Last week, Irvin revealed that he lost his voice after watching the Cowboys beat the New Orleans Saints in the regular season. He was “so elated and hyped” that the problem “persisted for almost [two] months.”
Throat specialists recommended a biopsy for the NFL Hall of Famer and three-time Super Bowl Champion. The 53-year-old saw tweets and celebrations from old teammates such as Emmitt Smith who said, “God is good!! So thankful for the good news.”
Irvin currently works for the NFL Network.
