Pro Football Hall of Famer Ron Yary is “fighting for his life,” according to his son.

In a Twitter post, Jack Yary said his 74-year-old father is currently hospitalized, apparently due to COVID-19.

A member of both the College Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Yary was a six-time All-Pro for the Minnesota Vikings in the 1970s. He’s also a member of the Vikings’ Ring of Honor and was selected to the NFL’s All-Decade team for the 1970s. He was also a two-time All-American with USC.
