A former NFL defensive lineman has revealed that he nearly died from a stroke.

Chris Baker, a former offensive lineman for the Washington Redskins, appeared in a hospital room in a video posted to his Instagram account on Wednesday and spoke about a medical emergency that almost claimed his life at age 35.

“Tell your love ones you love ’em, my life almost ended 2 days ago,” Baker captioned the photo, admitting he suffered a stroke on Friday, as reported by TMZ.

“I can’t believe I had a stroke but God not done with me yet.”

According to People, Baker is hospitalized in Hartford, Connecticut.

Baker’s mother told TMZ that her son had suffered a “serious” stroke, prompting physicians to conduct emergency surgery.

Baker’s physicians anticipate a full recovery.

Another video saw Baker receiving IV treatment in the hospital room. In another clip, the former NFL player uploaded a hospital corridor video.

The official Washington Commanders Instagram account reacted on the photo with prayer hands and heart emojis, wishing the former player well.

Baker spent six seasons with the Washington Redskins during his nine-year NFL career.

He played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Miami Dolphins as well.

The graduate of Hampton University earned 214 tackles and 12 sacks during his career.
