Former Philadelphia Eagle and NFL Hall of Fame member Chuck Bednarik was admitted to St. Luke's Hospital in Bethlehem, PA yesterday with shortness of breath. A nursing supervisor from the hospital noted that the 85-year old was in "serious" condition.
Bednarik payed both center and linebacker in his 13 years with the Birds, and was on the last two Eagles teams to win an NFL Championship more than 50 years ago. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1967, and was ranked 35th in the NFL Network's Top 100 Players list. he is a bona fide Philadelphia legend.
Keep him in your prayers, folks.
