Friend says Alex Karras has only days to live

Karras, the former NFL great, suffered kidney failure in the last two weeks and has been given only a few days to live. Friends of Alex Karras say the former NFL great suffered kidney failure in the last two weeks and has been given only a few days to live. Tom McInerney, a Detroit-area car dealer and a friend of Karras' since the 1950s, said Karras' wife, Susan Clark, told him of her husband's failing health in a phone call Monday. The 77-year-old Karras has suffered from a variety of health problems in recent years, including dementia and cancer, and is part of the mass concussion lawsuit more than 3,000 former players have filed against the NFL. Catherine Lincoln, general manager of Clark Karras Properties, said Karras was released from Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica over the weekend and is at his California home on hospice care.
