Chuck Bednarik will remain in the hospital a few more days (US Presswire). Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Chuck Bednarik, who was admitted to St. Luke’s Hospital in Bethlehem, Pa., for shortness of breath Wednesday, is “sitting up in his bed and talking,” according to a report in the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The 85-year-old Eagles legend (pictured at right in 1961) remains in serious condition, and doctors continue to run tests on him to determine the cause of his condition. Though they’ve ruled out a heart attack, doctors expect to keep him in the hospital for a few days longer.

“His heart is as strong as when he was playing,” his son-in-law, Ken Safarowic, told the paper.

And it sounds like Bednarik is ready to get the heck out of the hospital.

"I wish I could say he's resting comfortably, but he's never been one to be comfortable sitting still," Safarowic said. "He's like, 'Get me the hell out of here.'"

Great news, but no surprise. 85 years old or not, Bednarik is tougher than an old steak.

From what I have read and heard through the years about Concrete Chuck, I would expect nothing else :)
Wish I could have seen him play and in this era w the pansy ass players today.

Get well soon!
