[BN] Blitz newsletter: Pancho Billa back in Dallas hospital, he tweeted

After being discharged from MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston earlier this week, Bills super fan Ezra Castro, better known as Pancho Billa, was taken by ambulance to a Dallas hospital Sunday night, he tweeted.

Earlier in the day, Castro said in a tweet that he was "not truly much better" but he is "fighting."

Castro, who has been fighting cancer since 2017, was back in the hospital last week after a troubling CT scan.

The News' Sean Kirst traveled to Houston and went behind the mask on Castro, the man living with overwhelming pain as he goes through treatments. Read Sean's story here and view James McCoy's photo gallery here.

Pancho Billa, behind the mask: Pain, strength and unwavering passion

Bills' new $18M sports performance center: 'Clearly the best' in NFL: “I think it's a game-changer for us,” General Manager Brandon Beane said. “This is the one thing that we didn't have that was top level, and we went from probably below average to the best — I think clearly the best.” Take a look inside.

Could Montez Sweat fall to Bills at No. 9? Health issue causes speculation: Sweat would make a lot of sense for the Bills, Mark Gaughan wrote. But will a heart condition keep the defensive end, who many thought was a top 10 pick, out of the top 10? We'll find out this week.
