Mike Ditka released from hospital Sunday

By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

Scary news came out on Friday evening, when we learned Hall of Famer and current ESPN broadcaster Mike Ditka was hospitalized with a minor stroke.

So it was quite a relief Sunday when ESPN producer Seth Markman tweeted that Ditka was released from the hospital.

Great news indeed -- and it's fitting that Ditka got free of the hospital on a Sunday.

He was "overwhelmed" with the support that poured his way over the weekend and was, per Markman, hoping to get released in time to watch the NFL this week.

Ditka's obviously a tough dude, and it's doubtful anyone expected him to do anything other than recover from this. But knowing that one of the all-time greats is back on his feet is good to know, indeed.

Here's hoping for a full recovery for the coach.
