Eagles NFL Hall of Famer Chuck Bednarik hospitalized


PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Famer Chuck Bednarik is in serious condition in a hospital near his Pennsylvania home.

A nursing supervisor at St. Luke’s Hospital in Bethlehem would not provide additional information on the condition of the 85-year-old former star.

Bednarik played linebacker and center for the Eagles long after the heyday of two-way players. His game-saving tackle helped the Eagles capture the 1960 NFL championship, the last title won by the franchise.

He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1967.
