Barry Sanders reveals a recent health scare with his heart

USA Today

Lions legend Barry Sanders has gone public with a recent health scare, one that is forcing the Pro Football Hall of Fame running back to change up his schedule.

Sanders, 55, revealed on his social media that he suffered a heart-related problem over Father’s Day weekend. Without going into detail regarding exactly what happened, a grateful Sanders thanked the medical professionals who came to his aid. Sanders also thanked fans for their thoughts and prayers.

Based on his note, don’t expect to see Sanders making any public appearances anytime soon.


“Per my doctor’s recommendation, I am taking this opportunity to prioritize my health and well-being. I appreciate your understanding and continued support,” Sanders concluded his statement.

Sanders does many public appearances and autograph signings, but that likely has been shelved for some time for perfectly understandable reasons. Here’s hoping Sanders continues to recover and gets back to being the Barry we all know and love.
