Arthur Blank announces he has treatable prostate cancer

His prognosis is good, which is a relief.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

This isn't the statement you expect to see from your team's owner on a Tuesday afternoon, so I'm thankful that the news is mostly positive.

It doesn't sound like Blank is going to be stepping away from the Falcons or Atlanta FC United in any capacity, and while it's difficult to know his condition and prognosis based off a statement this short, this is as upbeat of an announcement as you'll see for someone diagnosed with cancer.

Be well, Arthur Blank.
