Karras gained fame as a fearsome defensive lineman and later went on to a career as an actor and broadcaster. Craig Mitnick, Karras' attorney, said Karras died at home in Los Angeles on Wednesday, surrounded by family. Karras had been suffering from dementia. He was among the more than 3,500 NFL players suing the league regarding the treatment of head injuries. Detroit drafted Karras, who grew up in Gary, Ind., 10th overall in 1958 out of Iowa. He was a four-time All-Pro defensive tackle over 12 seasons with the franchise. Karras may be even better known for his work as an actor. He portrayed an adoptive dad in the 1980s sitcom "Webster," and punched a horse in the 1974 comedy classic "Blazing Saddles." --------------------------------------------------------- Mongo no longer pawn in game of life. Rest in peace, Mr. Karras. Promote this thread!

Hmm.. I guess he's projected to be a third stringer, which is OK by me. Hell, he'll never see any playing time, outside of preseason. I don't forsee another injury season from hell coming out of Philadelphia anytime soon.
