NFL Films' Steve Sabol stable, alert after suffering seizure

NFL Films president Steve Sabol is in stable condition in a Kansas City hospital after suffering a seizure Saturday night.

Sabol, 68, was in Kansas City attending the 101 Awards, where he was to accept the Lamar Hunt Award for Professional Football 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.

Steve's father, Ed, is the founder of NFL Films and last month was selected as a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame's Class of 2011.

Steve Sabol has been with NFL Films since 1964, when he began working for his father as a cinematographer. In that time, he has received 27 Emmy Awards for writing, cinematography, editing, directing and producing.
