The wife of defensive lineman Tommie Harris is on life support after suffering either a stroke or brain aneurism, family friend Bill Horn told the Chicago Sun-Times' Sean Jensen.

"We are holding on for a miracle," Horn said.

Harris was the 14th overall pick in the 2004 draft out of the University of Oklahoma. He played seven seasons with the Bears where he was a Pro Bowler. The team released him after the 2010 season. He was also released by the Colts during the 2011 preseason before signing with the Chargers where he played in 13 games, registered 13 tackles, three sacks, and a forced fumble.

Jensen reports that Ashley, 29, is in an Oklahoma hospital and some of Harris' Chicago teammates are en route to offer their support. Ashley gave birth to the couple's second child in October.

I'm really sorry that this is happening to  Harris family. I lost my sister (she was 35) due to an aneurism this past September. I hope and pray that Tommie's wife is able to pull through. God Bless!

As a Chicago Bears fan I'm pretty sure I can say we are all praying for Tommie Harris and his family.  I can not even imagine what he and his family are going through right now.  We all hope that his wife can some how pull through this. Before Tommie got hurt he was one of the most dominant defensive players in the NFL!

Wow and only at age 29 that is so sad and young!!! I will pray for Harris's wife to make it through this she is far to young to pass. Makes me really sad to see this and I've never seen or met her :(

May God shine his light down upon her and the entire family during this time.  I truly hope and pray she pulls through and stays with us.  May Mrs. Harris have the strength to weather this storm and remain with her loving family.  May God be with the entire Harris family!

Wow, I can't imagine this - made me think of my wife, since her name is also Ashley, she is 29, and just gave birth to our second child in December. Thought of what it would be like to be in this situation. Hoping Mrs. Harris pulls through...
