Kraft treating skin lesions

By Mike Reiss

PHOENIX -- Patriots owner Robert Kraft disclosed Monday that he has pre-cancerous skin lesions, as he had red marks on his nose, cheek and lip while speaking with reporters.

"You should see the other guy," he joked, before urging those around him to consider having their skin examined.

After having his face examined by a dermatologist, Kraft was given a medical cream to apply over the last few weeks. He will continue doing so through the end of the month.

"It was just small spots and you couldn't see them," he said. "Hopefully it makes it go away."
