Hall of Famer Mike Ditka told ESPN radio Monday he is fine just days after having a stroke.
"I feel good. I felt good before I had this thing," Ditka said.
Ditka was released from a hospital Sunday after he received a clean bill of health from doctors.
The current ESPN analyst will return to work Tuesday to host his radio program, "The Mike Ditka Show," his agent, Steve Mandell, told ESPN Chicago.
Ditka had the stroke on Friday while playing cards at a country club in suburban Chicago.
"I was kind of like driving down life real fast and I had a flat tire," Ditka said. "It opens your eyes."
Ditka, 73, was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1988 while he was coaching the Chicago Bears.
The last health problem Ditka had was a heart attack in 1988 when he was 48.
"I feel good about everything," he said. "I'm going to be all right."
