Former Clemson and NFL defensive lineman William "The Refrigerator Perry" is listed in serious condition in an Aiken-area hospital after suffering from symptoms from a chronic illness.
A relative says the 46-year-old Perry is expected to recover.
Perry was a star on Clemson’s defensive line from 1981 to 1984 then gained fame with the Bears and played on both sides of the ball in his rookie season, a year in which they won their only Super Bowl.
Please keep the fridge in your thoughts and prayers. Anybody who is a Bears fan knows his place in Chicago sports lore.
