Former Kansas City Chiefs RB Ed Podolak continues to recover from injuries sustained when he was hit by a car last weekend in Arizona. According to his daughter, Podolak remains in stable condition in a Scottsdale hospital.
“He continues to undergo minor surgeries to repair his injuries. He is alert and remains in good spirits, but is requesting privacy.”
Police in the Phoenix suburb say the 63-year-old Podolak was not inside a crosswalk when he was hit Sunday. They say the driver of the car that hit Podolak tried to brake but couldn’t stop fast enough.
Police said Tuesday that the investigation is ongoing.
Great news that the early signs are all positive for Podolak. I’m sure he (and all Iowa fans) are hoping that he will be able to get back in time for the Hawkeyes first game of the season in September.
