Johnny Unitas Hospitalized


Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas was hospitalized Tuesday after complaining of chest pains.

Unitas, 66, was listed in good condition at the University of Maryland Medical Center. A hospital spokeswoman said Unitas will return home Wednesday.

The former Baltimore Colts star checked into the hospital Monday and underwent a series of heart tests, but doctors think his pain stemmed from gastrointestinal problems.

Unitas broke nearly every NFL passing record and won three championships with the Colts in an 18-year career. He was voted quarterback of the NFL's 50th anniversary team.
