Paul Schwartz of the New York Post is reporting that New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman has told friends that his cancer is in remission.

Gettleman shared the news after, reportedly, his latest set of scans came back showing no signs of cancer.

The Giants' GM was originally diagnosed with the disease (lymphoma) back in June, but still worked as much as his treatment allowed. Assistant GM and Vice President of Football Operations Kevin Abrams picked up the slack, but Gettleman has still been very much a presence in the Giants' organization. Speaking at training camp today, head coach Pat Shurmur said, “Dave’s doing great, he was here [Tuesday], and he’s been doing his treatments. That’s a process that he’s going through, but we communicate frequently. We’ve been in close touch all summer, I didn’t do much traveling, so I was here in town and Dave and I communicated quite a bit, actually.”

The Giants could use the good news after a freak injury has derailed CB Sam Beal's rookie season before it could even start.

I know we all wish Gettleman nothing but the best as he continues his recovery.
