BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) - ESPN analyst Chris Mortensen says his throat cancer has been “virtually reduced to zero detection.”

Mortensen was diagnosed in January and underwent intensive chemotherapy and radiation treatments. He has been on a leave of absence from the network. He says he anticipates returning for NFL coverage “on a limited basis” this season.

“I do have scheduled exams and scans during the next three months to monitor my status,” he says, “but my oncologists have directed me to recover and rehab from the treatments that have resulted in lengthy hospitalization, significant weight loss, strength, endurance and related health issues. I am following instructions to overcome these challenges.”
