DALLAS (AP) - Iowa State defensive lineman Mitchell Meyers is close to wrapping up chemotherapy for Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a process during which he didn’t miss any summer workouts with his teammates.

Cyclones coach Paul Rhoads said Tuesday that Meyers has his last scheduled chemo appointment Friday in Iowa.

Rhoads said Mitchell, who is from the Houston area, will then return to Texas for radiation treatment before rejoining the team in September.

Iowa State announced in February that Meyers had been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma and was beginning treatment.

Rhoads said prayers are still extended for Mitchell and his family, and that the team watches “in admiration and appreciation each and every single day.”

Mitchell, listed at 6-foot-4 and 260 pounds, was one of only four ISU players to start every game last season.
