Jaguars offensive line coach George Yarno has been diagnosed with cancer, but will remain with the team during his treatment. Coach Gus Bradley made the announcement after today’s organized team activity workout. The team did not disclose the nature of the cancer and Yarno was not available for comment. Bradley said Yarno will not take a leave of absence from the team, but his treatment schedule will force him to miss days of work. “He has our full support in this fight he’s about to undertake,” Bradley said. “He’s received some positive news on his treatment options and how they’re going to go about attacking it. He’s confident in the plan and felt really good about the initial part of it.” Yarno is in his second year with the Jaguars and has been coaching since 1991. He missed Wednesday’s OTA and was mostly an observer today with assistant offensive line coach Luke Butkus handling most of the individual drills.
