Great news from “Team Jack”

The Bengals have had a tough week dealing with a loss to the Browns in their last time on the field, but one of their fans got great news off the field Wednesday.

According to the Twitter page for the Team Jack Foundation, the 7-year-old boy who captured the hearts of the sports nation in the spring with an inspiring touchdown run during the Nebraska spring football game received an encouraging update in his battle with brain cancer.


Jack became a Bengals fan after the team selected Rex Burkhead, a former Nebraska running back who was his favorite player and became a close friend of his after the two met in 2011, in the April draft.

Our Kevin Goheen took an in-depth look at their relationship earlier this year.
