ALLENTOWN, Pa. (CBS) – Former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker and Hall of Famer Chuck Bednarik was admitted to a hospital Wednesday after experiencing shortness of breath.

Bednarik was taken to a hospital in the Lehigh Valley after feeling faint and suffering shortness of breath.

Hospital officials did not comment on Bednarik’s condition, but reports said he was sitting up and talking with family members at the hospital.

Bednarik, who lives in the Lehigh Valley, will turn 86 this coming May.

Bednarik is credited with helping to lead the Eagles to a championship in 1960 and is perhaps the last notable player to play both offense and defense during the same game.

He was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1967.
