Steve Sabol hospitalized, in stable condition

Posted by Will Brinson

Scary news out of Kansas City: NFL Films president Steve Sabol was hospitalized Monday night, according to the NFL.

Sabol, 68, was in Kansas City at the 101 Awards to accept the Lamar Hunt Award on behalf of NFL Films when, according to NFL.com, he suffered a seizure.

He was "taken to a hospital, underwent a series of tests over the weekend and was awake and alert Monday." There is some slightly good news, however: according to multiple reports, Sabol is now listed in "stable" condition.

Sabol is, for many people in a younger generation of football fans, almost the "voice of football." While he doesn't necessarily announce games, much of the game's history is narrated with his rich, distinctive voice.

His father, Ed, was recently selected for the NFL Hall of Fame and founded NFL Films.
