Former Saint Steve Gleason, battling ALS, tweeted during game with his eyes


Former Saints safety Steve Gleason was responsible for the first major play in the Superdome after Hurricane Katrina when he blocked a punt that led to a score and sparked an inspiring 2006 season. There's even a statue to commemorate the moment. He now suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, and can no longer walk, talk or eat without assistance. But he hasn't stopped rooting for his team. (FOX Sports)
