Perry released from hospital
AIKEN, S.C. -- William "The Refrigerator" Perry has been released from the hospital after a month-long stay for complications of a nervous system disorder.
Aiken Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Melissa Summer said the former Chicago Bears star was released on Wednesday after being treated for Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
Summer had no details about Perry's condition other than that doctors considered the 46-year-old improved enough to go home.
A call to Perry's agent, Adam Plotkin, was not immediately returned. A phone at the home of Perry's nephew, Purnell Perry, went unanswered.
Perry was a 300-pound plus defensive tackle for the Bears and scored a TD in the team's win over the New England Patriots in the 1986 Super Bowl.
