Podolak “thankful and overwhelmed”


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Ed Podolak remains in stable condition and is receiving medication because of the number of surgeries he’s had, his daughter said.

Podolak, a former Iowa and Kansas City Chief running back, was struck by a car last weekend in Scottsdale, Ariz., while on a social trip. He also works as a radio analyst for Hawkeye football.

“He wants to again express how thankful and overwhelmed he is by all of the wonderful well wishes sent to him from Hawkeye fans all across the nation,” Laura Podolak said in a release Thursday.
Well-wishers are encouraged to send their messages to Ed Podolak through his recently created Facebook page.

“He’s aware that it’s going to be a challenging and lengthy rehabilitation for him to return to his full physical abilities,” Laura Podolak said. “But he’s confident that overall he will return as a better man.

He wants to thank God, his higher power, for protecting him in this unfortunate accident. The injuries could have been much worse.”
