Devon Still figures it will be the most emotional game he'll ever play.

The Bengals defensive tackle will have his 4-year-old daughter, Leah, watching from a seat at Paul Brown Stadium on Thursday night when Cincinnati (5-2-1) hosts the Cleveland Browns (5-3). The girl is being treated for cancer.

After the first quarter, the team will present a check for more than $1 million to Children's Hospital for cancer treatment and research. The money was raised from sales of Still's jersey.

On Sunday, Still supported collegiate basketball player Lauren Hill by wearing her name on his eye black strips. Hill is a freshman at Mount St. Joseph who has inoperable brain cancer. She scored two baskets in her first game.
