DALLAS -- Sports broadcaster Pat Summerall is recovering from emergency surgery to stop internal bleeding.
Summerall's wife Cheri says her 78-year-old husband is resting
comfortably in a Dallas-area hospital. Doctors told her that a new
medicine he had recently started taking caused a reaction that
induced the bleeding.
The surgery took place Thursday.
Summerall, a former NFL kicker and lineman, underwent a liver
transplant four years ago and hip replacement surgery in January.
