Former New Orleans Saints and Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Danny Wuerffel is undergoing treatment for a potentially debilitating disease called Guillain Barre Syndrome.
Desire Street Ministries, a nonprofit, faith-based organization with which Wuerffel works, said in a statement Wednesday that the former quarterback contracted the disorder from a stomach virus.
Spokeswoman Sara Pace said Wuerffel initially was hospitalized in Montgomery, Ala., and later transferred to Birmingham, but is now receiving outpatient treatment at a location that the family would like to remain private. He expects to make a full recovery.
The syndrome occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks parts of the nervous system.
Wuerffel played for Florida from 1993-96, then spent six season in the NFL with New Orleans, Green Bay, Chicago and Washington.
