Andy Griffin had that disease but he recovered.

Hopefully this will be something the Fridge can conquer as well. Poor man.

Unfortunately his weight will not be helping his recover, even at his "slimmer" 275 pounds. The resultant weakened muscles will be much more difficult to functionally come back from when saddled with that type of weight, as opposed to the 160 pounds Andy was carrying around.

From what I've heard, he's been in bad health for a while now. I hope he pulls through, but like Cloak said, his weight isn't helping. I haven't read the article, but I did recently hear he's been in a wheelchair for months now.

You're correct. Johnny Cash ended up having another nerve disease........
"autonomic neuropathy."

Get well soon, Fridge. You were a big part of what made being a Bears fan so great back in the day.

How heavy is he? Didn't he play at 300 plus pounds?

Irregardless it's sad he's so ill. He's not that old...this has been a bad week hearing about people dying and being ill and all.

My memory could be a bit off, but I thought I saw him on tv a few years ago and that he owned a restaurant. Seems that he was still quite large and had a lot of teeth missing. I checked it out, and found that he introduced a brand of barbecue sauce, but was in the construction business.

I recall when he played both offense and defense and would be called on in first and goal plays. He was also one who had a personality that you liked him even if not a Bears fan.

More like 300 plus plus plus. He played his entire career between 360 and 380.

he played over 350 and once he stopped working out he was over 400. A recipe for not getting to 50. Most 300+ pounders don't make it to old age, regardless of body type.
