LAWRENCE, Kan. — University of Kansas defensive end D.J. Marshall has informed the team that he has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Marshall released a statement through the university Thursday vowing to defeat the disease and be back on the football field.
The redshirt freshman will undergo more tests before doctors decide on a treatment.
Team physician Larry Magee said Marshall's prognosis for a full recovery is good.
Coach Mark Mangino said Marshall will remain with the team during this weekend's game with Kansas State.
