During a 10-year NFL career, Detroit Lions superstar Barry Sanders was among the league’s elite running backs, and despite playing for only a decade, he is considered by some to be the greatest to ever play the position.

Unfortunately for Sanders, the Lions didn’t do much to surround him with the talent necessary to become a legitimate NFC title contender as Detroit failed to find much success in the NFL playoffs, causing the Hall of Famer to end his career prematurely without a Super Bowl title.

Sanders decided to walk away from the game on his own terms, and never really explained why he decided to retire at age 31 when he was still considered the best running back in the league.

Despite the controversial decision to retire, Sanders is revered as one of the best to ever do it and has become more vocal in retirement than he was during his playing career.

However, things took a turn for the worse recently when Sanders had a health scare, which shocked the entire NFL and the Lions organization.

Sanders shared an update on Twitter about how he’s doing and admitted that he’s still not back to 100 percent. He also said that fans should take his health scare as a sign to check in on their own health.

Fortunately for Sanders, he’s on the road to recovery, and if he attacks defenses the same way he did in the NFL, he’ll be fine when all is said and done.

As for the Lions, Detroit is on the rise and could compete for a Super Bowl title next season.
