    Ryan Leaf has benign brain tumor removed

    Former Chargers quarterback Ryan Leaf is recovering from brain surgery after a benign tumor was removed last week.

    The No. 2 overall pick in the 1998 NFL Draft experienced dizziness and blurred vision before seeing a doctor earlier this month. He had surgery last week and was released from the hospital on Saturday, according to a statement from his publicist.

    Leaf is currently living in Montana and told Dan Patrick recently that he was doing well financially as he recovers from a painkiller addiction.

    A brain tumor is no laughing matter. I hope he has a speedy recovery.

    Glad it turned out ok, hated Leaf during his era here, but recently heard him on 1090 a few times, he sounds like he is pretty cool now. Realizes he F-ed up in the past, and owns up to it.

    Exactly. A lot of people were young and stupid once, they just had the benefit of not having reporters following them around. I wish the whole Leaf thing had gone better, but wishing ill upon him because he f_cked our football team once upon a time seems a bit ridiculous.

    Best wishes to he who shall not be named. They created you and loved tearing you down. Glad to see you got back up.

    Luckily the tumor is benign. Still dangerous but not the hallmark "12 months of pain before you die" scenario posed by most brain tumors.
