The Fridge Upgraded to Fair

AIKEN, S.C. -- Former Chicago Bears defensive lineman William "The Refrigerator" Perry has been upgraded to fair condition in a South Carolina hospital.

The 46-year-old Perry has been hospitalized for two weeks to deal with complications from Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a chronic inflammation disorder of the peripheral nerves.

He had previously been listed in serious condition.

Perry's relatives have said he was expected to recover.

A hospital spokeswoman could offer no additional details about Perry or how long he will be hospitalized.

The 300-pound-plus defensive tackle played for the Bears' 1985 Super Bowl team and helped lead Clemson to the 1981 national championship.
