The Patriots selected rookie OT Marcus Cannon as the recipient of the 2011 Ed Block Courage Award, honoring Cannon as the player who "best exemplifies the principles of courage and sportsmanship while also serving as a source of inspiration."

Cannon was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma following his senior season at TCU. The Patriots selected him in the fifth round of April's draft.

Cannon completed treatments and was promoted to the team's active roster on Nov. 15 after starting the season on the reserve/non-football injury list. Cannon played in all seven games he was active for, starting with his NFL debut on "Monday Night Football" against the Chiefs in Week 11.
