Steve Gleason recovering from surgery

Beloved former Saints player Steve Gleason was recovering from surgery Monday night.

At about 2:30 p.m., Gleason sent a tweet saying, "We've lived this ALS journey publicly - no reason to stop now. I am heading in for a semi-planned tracheotomy tonight. Tweet you later."

At about 7 p.m. the "Team Gleason" Facebook page announced that he was out of surgery, and that it went well.

His organization said that Gleason planned to have the procedure in the next 30 days, but needed it sooner than expected.
