Former New Orleans Saint Steve Gleason was in attendance at tonight's Monday Night Game in the Superdome and in the 1st Quarter, he became unresponsive and was taken to Oschner Hospital. Throughout the ESPN broadcast, the network told the story of Gleason and his battle with Lou Gehrig's Disease.

The latest report indicates that Gleason is responsive and alert at Oschner's hospital in New Orleans. It has been well documented that Gleason is battling a terminal disease and can no longer walk, talk, or use any of his extremities these days.

The following tweet was posted late Monday night on the team_gleason  twitter account.
