CHICAGO (AP)—Former Chicago Bears (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/chi/;_ylt=An6frXSNHMEWe5elFMgeMTwdsLYF) defensive lineman William “The Refrigerator” Perry is in serious condition at a South Carolina hospital, a spokeswoman said Tuesday.

Perry, 46, was hospitalized to deal with complications from Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a chronic inflammation disorder of the peripheral nerves, the Chicago Sun-Times and Chicago Tribune reported.

Aiken Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Melissa Summer declined to give additional details Tuesday.

Perry’s nephew, Purnell Perry, told the Sun-Times his uncle was admitted more than a week ago but was expected to recover.

“They were making sure he was in pretty good health before they started treating him,” Perry said.

That is sad. I love the Fridge. I was cheering for him and hoping he would destroy the Stork way back when Fox aired celebrity boxing.

Terrible News. Hopefully everything comes out alright. I saw him play in a flag football match. It was the Buffalo Bills Superbowl All-Stars vs the NFL All-stars in Buffalo.

He gave hope to DT's like me - that we may one day carry the ball in some goal-line situation.

Me too, and I had my dream realized when I was used as a DT/FB in High School. I just wish him the best and hope he is OK.

Also, how weird is at that I read Guillian-Barr Syndrome, and the first thought that came to my mind was, "I remember that from House." (The TV Show)
