The 68-year-old Sabol was in Kansas City to accept an award on behalf of NFL Films when he became ill.

Sabol was taken to a hospital, underwent a series of tests over the weekend, and was awake and alert Monday.

Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday wished him well on Tuesday.

''We hope Steve Sabol is doing much better. Our prayers are with him,'' Saturday said before heading into labor negotiations between the NFL and the players' union in Washington.

Steve's father, Ed, is the founder of NFL Films and was selected for induction to the Pro Football Hall of Fame last month.

Steve Sabol began working for his father in 1964. He has won multiple Emmy Awards for writing, cinematography, editing, directing and producing.
