The unfinished story was posted Tuesday night and said Marrone had been “diagnosed with BLANK TYPE OF CANCER.” The story was removed after The Buffalo News drew attention to it in a story published on the newspaper’s website.

A few hours later, the Bills issued a statement from Marrone saying he had a cancerous mole removed and will have his moles checked every three months. Marrone said it will not impact his ability to coach. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
