Heyward Passes

Although, only a Bear for one season he was still a Bear and was a notable figure in the NFL for a number of years, so he merits the attention.

Former Bears fullback Craig "Ironhead" Heyward died Saturday after a 7 1/2-year fight with a recurring brain tumor, his son's high school football coach said. He was 39.

Heyward's stats from his year in Chicago were 68 attempts for 206 yards in 16 games.
