That's his daughter, Leah, helping her dad become the best he can be on the field. Devon announced last month that Leah's cancer is in remission, 296 days after she was diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma and was given a 50/50 chance to survive. 

Devon Still took time away from the Bengals at the beginning of the 2014 season, but the team added him to the practice squad so that he could keep his health insurance and help pay for Leah's treatments. The team began selling replicas of Still's No. 75 jersey and donating the proceeds to pediatric cancer research, sales that topped over $1.25 million.
