Hall of Famer Mike Ditka is hospitalized tonight after suffering a “very minor stroke,” according to Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune and National Football Post.

I feel good right now and it’s not a big deal,” Ditka told Pompei.

Doctors told Ditka the stroke was minor. Ditka fell ill at a suburban Chicago country club this afternoon. The 73-year-old is an analyst for ESPN. It is not known if he will be on the air this weekend from Bristol, Conn.
