Former Ravens offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said in a news conference Friday night that he has been given a "clean bill of health" following a recent diagnosis of prostate cancer.

The Baton Rouge Advocate, citing an anonymous source, had reported earlier that Cameron, who is entering his third season as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for Louisana State University, is planning to coach during the 2015 season.

According to the Advocate, Cameron said tonight that he underwent a "procedure" and he's been getting treatment for the disease.

"I'm fine. My health is good," Cameron said, according to the newspaper. "I've been given a clean bill of health. Been involved throughout camp."

Cameron, 54, was the Ravens offensive coordinator from 2008 to 2012. He was fired late in the 2012 season and replaced by Jim Caldwell, who called the plays during the Ravens' Super Bowl run. Following that season, Ravens coach John Harbaugh and the organization sent Cameron a Super Bowl ring, which the longtime coach presented to his stepfather.

"Honestly, it meant a lot," Cameron told The Baltimore Sun at the time. "I'm very appreciative of the people in Baltimore and obviously the leadership of the Ravens for that gesture. It meant a tremendous amount. It meant a lot to my family."
