Former Hawk Gets a Health Scare

Posted:

A benign, baseball-size tumor has been removed from the chest of Arizona Cardinals defensive end Kenny Iwebema.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt says the surgery was performed on Monday. The tumor was discovered during routine X-rays before the start of minicamp April 30.

Trainer Tom Reed says Iwebema showed no symptoms and that the condition could have been life-threatening had it gone undetected.

Iwebema was a fourth-round draft pick out of Iowa in 2008.
