Eagles great Chuck Bednarik was released last night from St. Luke’s-Fountain Hill hospital in Bethlehem, where the 85-year-old has been since early last week.
“There’s no reason why he shouldn’t be back on his feet in a couple of days,” his son-in-law, Ken Safarowic said. “He left with a clean bill of health.”
Bednarik has been hospitalized since last Tuesday when he was taken there after shortness of breath and feeling faint.
“He was a little anemic and dehydrated,” Safarowic said. “I don’t think it was any one significant issue. A bunch of things just ganged up on him at the same time. The heart and organs weren’t affected. He’s in a good shape otherwise.”
