A quick update on Hall of Famer Lee Roy Selmon.

The Tampa Tribune’s Joey Johnston reports Selmon’s brother said the first player ever drafted by the Bucs is showing signs of improvement after being hospitalized Friday.

"He's stable and we all have great hope,'' Dewey Selmon said. "He's a fighter. Keep the prayers going.''

A hospital official said Selmon was in critical condition Saturday afternoon.
