Auburn signee and cancer survivor Tashawn Manning continues to move closer to getting back to playing football.
Manning announced that he finished up chemotherapy to treat acute promyelocytic leukemia last month, and he posted more good news to his twitter on Wednesday.

Manning hadn’t yet been cleared to perform workouts before Wednesday’s post. He lost more than 60 pounds as a result of the chemotherapy. The “real workouts” he says can start are the first step to any potential return to the field for the Wekiva High School grad, who was the 61st ranked defensive tackle in the nation in the class of 2016.
Manning is expected to enroll at Auburn in January.
