Former Chicago Bears coach and Hall of Fame tight end Mike Ditka suffered what he said doctors told him was a "very minor stroke."

Ditka was hospitalized Friday after he noticed, while playing cards with friends, his hands "weren't working quite right" and he had a problem speaking.

"I feel good right now and it's not a big deal," Ditka said, according to The Chicago Tribune.

Ditka, 73, hasn't had any major health problems in recent years, but "Iron" Mike did have a heart attack in 1988 while coaching the Bears. He was back at work within a week, which sounds kind of familiar.

I hope he's OK. I used to hate Ditka back in his coaching days, but now I like him a lot as a TV personality/commentator. Best wishes to him and his health!

Love Mike Ditka! Hope he has a speedy recovery. Love his sense of humor, especially when he was a coach. He could really handle the stupid questions well.
