Devon Still has been released by the Cincinnati Bengals, the team announced Saturday. 

Still played 12 games for the Bengals last season. He recorded 19 total tackles. 

In 2014, the Bengals kept Still on the team's practice squad to help him financially with his daughter Leah's cancer diagnosis. He eventually joined the 53-man roster. 

In March of this year, Still announced his daughter Leah's cancer was in remission. As of July, Leah's cancer is still in remission. 

Because Still was on the Bengals’ roster last year, he and his daughter will have five years of NFL health insurance, even if Still is not on an NFL roster, reportsThe Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Dehner. 

Still reacted to the news on Twitter:

All NFL teams must trim their rosters to 53 players by 4 p.m. Saturday.
