Eagles great Chuck Bednarik, who was admitted to St. Luke's Hospital in Bethlehem last week after suffering shortness of breath, is expected to be released later this week, his son-in-law said Monday night.

"He was up and walking around today and eating more," said Ken Safarowic, who has been a spokesman for the Bednarik family.

Safarowic said that tests had revealed no major problems for Bednarik, although he conceded that the 85-year-old Hall of Famer "needed to get retooled."

"His heart's fine, he didn't have a stroke, so the doctors don't want to keep him any longer than they have to," Safarowic said. "They caught him crawling out of bed."
