Steve Sabol in stable condition after seizure

NFL Films President Steve Sabol is recovering in a Kansas City hospital after suffering a seizure on Saturday night.

NFL.com reports Sabol is in stable condition and was awake and alert Monday after undergoing a battery of tests over the weekend.  Sabol was in town to accept the Lamar Hunt Award for Professional Football on behalf of NFL Films at the 101 Awards.

We last heard from Sabol in Dallas, where we learned that his father Ed would be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.   At the time, he talked about how he always made his films with the fans in mind.

A nation of football fans — not to mention the countless people in the NFL Sabol has touched — can join us in wishing Sabol a speedy recovery.

  7. Just about anyone who has ever been a football fan should be wishing Steve Sabol a speedy recovery. The work he and his father Ed did beginning in the early 1960’s is a massive part of why the NFL is as big as it is today, and every football fan should appreciate all the work the Sabols have done over the years because of that.

    I don’t know what amazes me more. The fact that I have never seen anything close to 280 approvals or that 4 jerkoffs gave this comment a thumbs down. I am all for freedom of speech, but have some human decency.

  11. The Sabol family is one topic that brings all of us true NFL fans together in unity.
    Best wishes for a speedy recovery to him!
