PRO FOOTBALL DAILY REPORT : AFC : Bills' Levy Listed in Good Condition

Associated Press

Buffalo Bill Coach Marv Levy was listed in good condition at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo after surgery Tuesday to remove his prostate.

"The surgery was highly successful and Coach Levy is resting comfortably at this time," said Dr. Robert Huben.

Doctors have told Levy, 70, in his ninth year with Buffalo, that the disease was discovered at an early stage. There is a 60% to 80% chance the surgery will result in a complete cure if the tumor was confined to the prostate, Huben said.


Oakland Raider quarterback Jeff Hostetler, who spent Monday night at a hospital outside Denver because of a bruised larynx, is much better and is listed as probable for Sunday's game, Coach Mike White said.

Three other Raiders--cornerbacks Albert Lewis (thigh) and James Trapp (left knee) and offensive tackle Greg Skrepenak (right knee)--underwent MRI tests to determine the severity of injuries they suffered in the 27-0 loss to the Broncos. The results will be known today.
