Friends have been worried about Kramer since he lost his 18-year-old son, Griffen, to a heroin overdose in 2011.

Bear fans will remember that #12 Erik Kramer played for the Bears from 1994 to 1998, leading Chicago to one playoff appearance in 1994.

He played for four teams throughout his 10-year NFL career.

Glad to hear he is recovering and now he can get the medical care he needs.
