Sanders is one of the greatest running backs in NFL history. He played for the Lions from 1989 through 1998. 

“Over Father’s Day weekend, I experienced a health scare related to my heart,” Sanders wrote in a statement posted on social media. “It was unexpected and served as a reminder of the importance of staying vigilant about our physical well-being, even when we are feeling fine.

“I am grateful for the amazing doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals for providing me with needed care. My family and I are thankful for your prayers and support during this time.” 

It appears like Sanders will need some time to heal and recover. 

“Per my doctors’ recommendation, I am taking this opportunity to prioritize my health and well-being,” he said. “I appreciate your understanding and continued support.”
