The Buffalo Bills have issued the following statement this afternoon on how a story titled "Coach Marrone announces he has cancer" showed up on the team's official website and mobile application Tuesday night without further explanation.

"We are continuing today to discuss the unfortunate situation we experienced last night with our website and will address the matter internally."

After repeated media inquiries, including from The Buffalo News, the Bills late Tuesday night issued a statement from Marrone, explaining he had a cancerous mole removed from his skin recently.

"The only follow-up required is to have my moles checked every three months, and that basically is the end of the story. The recent extraction procedure will have no effect on my ability to coach the team moving forward,” the coach's statement read, in part.
