Pro Football Hall of Famer Chuck Bednarik is in serious condition this morning at a hospital near his Pennsylvania home.
St. Luke’s Hospital would not provide any further information about the condition of the 86-year-old Bednarik, who played for the Eagles from 1949 to 1962 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1967.
Bednarik played both center and linebacker and was the NFL’s last full-time two-way player. He was on the Eagles’ 1949 and 1960 NFL championship teams.
Last year’s NFL Top 100 list ranked Bednarik as the 35th-best player in league history.
