Eagles great Chuck Bednarik still shows signs of the resilience that made him a beast in the National Football League for 13 seasons.

According to his son-in-law Ken Safarowic, a nurse walked in on Bednarik this morning as he tried to get out of his hospital bed at St. Luke’s-Fountain Hill in Bethlehem, where the 85-year-old has been since early last week.

Safarowic said Bednarik is alert, eating and that with aid he is “shuffling around.”

While unable to provide an exact day, Safarowic noted that Bednarik is scheduled to be released sometime this week and that doctors “don’t want to keep him any longer than he wants to be there.”

Bednarik has been hospitalized since last Tuesday when he was taken there after shortness of breath and feeling faint. Safarowic has said doctors have indicated there is no problem with Bednarik's heart.
