A look at Mike Heimerdinger's fight

Mike Heimerdinger is gruff and tough. But like a lot of guys with that sort of exterior, you get inside it and he's different that you might expect.

My work has given me a chance to get to know him during his two stints with the Titans, and like the entire NFL community I was deeply saddened to learn that he's fighting cancer.

Here's a very nice piece on what he's going through from Liz Merrill, with special insight from another member of the AFC South, Brian Heimerdinger, a scouting intern with the Texans.
