Jaguars offensive line coach George Yarno has been diagnosed with cancer.

Head coach Gus Bradley told the media Thursday after wrapping up the team's  final OTA for the week. 

"He has our full support in this fight that he's about to undertake," Bradley said. "After being informed of the news yesterday, he did receive some really positive news. He's received some positive news on his treatment options and how we're going to go about attacking this.

It was not specified what type of cancer Yarno has, but Bradley said that he will remain in the building and on the sidelines as long as he can.

Yarno has coached for 23 years including six years in the NFL. He joined the Jaguars coaching staff as offensive line coach in January of 2013.
