DETROIT - Detroit Lions president Tom Lewand says the franchise is deeply saddened to learn of Alex Karras' condition.

The Detroit Free Press and Detroit News reported Monday that the former All-Pro defensive lineman and actor has kidney failure and has been given only a few days to live.

The 77-year-old Karras has been suffering from dementia. He is among the many former NFL players suing the league regarding the treatment of head injuries.
