A relative of former WVU quarterback Adam Bednarik, NFL Hall of Famer Chuck Bednarik, has been hospitalized.
The former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker is listed in serious condition at 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.
Adam Bednarik was a quarterback at West Virginia from 2003-07, but is probably best known as the quarterback who began the 2005 season as the starting quarterback, only to lose the job for good after being hurt. His replacement was Pat White.
